ZEISS has announced a new Otus 100mm f/1.4 lens for Canon and Nikon DSLRs.

ZEISS say the lens is for Canon and Nikon shooters 'who do not want to make any compromises concerning image and build quality'. They say the telephoto length delivers high resolution and outstanding definition in any situation - even at maximum aperture. 

The lens is available globally from today with prices of $4500 (excl. local taxes) and 4500 Euros respectively. No UK pricing has been given at this time. Lens shade and protective caps are included.

Achieving the outstanding image quality of medium format cameras

"The extremely high imaging performance and reliable production quality set the ZEISS Otus 1.4/100 apart in this class of lenses," says Björn Pados, Product Manager for ZEISS Camera Lenses. "ZEISS' comprehensive expertise and many years of experience went into developing the lens. The images captured with a ZEISS Otus lens in combination with a high-resolution, full-frame DSLR camera are on par with those created using a medium format system."

The lens design, with aspheric lenses and special glass materials keeps chromatic aberrations and distortion to a minimum. Even when shooting against the light, the T* anti-reflective coating developed by ZEISS allows for extremely high contrast and minimizes stray light.

Robust and reliable

The ZEISS Otus 1.4/100 also features impressive production quality and ergonomics: the extended rotation angle and smooth operation of mechanical components enable highly precise manual focusing. The stable full-metal housing with internal focusing ensures a consistent center of gravity and optimum balance when taking photographs. "This makes the ZEISS Otus 1.4/100 well-suited for the rough conditions a professional photographer faces, and its high-quality mechanical design ensures it will last for a long time," adds Pados.

The ZEISS Otus lens series

The ZEISS Otus lens series was developed for professional photographers who expect unrestricted edge-to-edge image quality that extends across the entire aperture range. ZEISS launched its high-end SLR lens family back in 2013 with the release of the ZEISS Otus 1.4/55. This series continued with the addition of a short tele lens, the ZEISS Otus 1.4/85, in 2014. The ZEISS Otus 1.4/28 wide-angle lens followed in 2015.
