    New ZEISS Otus 1.4/100 DSLR Lens for the Most Demanding Applications

    ZEISS adds a tele focal length to its line of lenses for full-frame DSLR cameras from Canon or Nikon

    With the ZEISS Otus 1.4/100, ZEISS is expanding its lens family for Canon1)- and Nikon1)-photographers who do not want to make any compromises concerning image and build quality. Whether in the studio or on-the-go, for portrait or product photography, the tele focal length delivers high resolution and outstanding definition in any situation -- even at maximum aperture. This high-speed lens clearly sets the subject apart from the background. The exceptional level of detail and harmonic bokeh ensure the "3D pop effect", ZEISS lenses are known for.

    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.

    Price and availability

    Global delivery for the ZEISS Otus 1.4/100 will begin immediately, with a sales price of 4,500 Euros (incl. German VAT) or 4,500 US$ (excl. local taxes). A lens shade and protective caps for the front and back lenses are included.

    With its new Otus 1.4/100, ZEISS has expanded the tried and tested Otus family to include a new telephoto focal length. The ZEISS Otus 1.4/100 is one of the best lenses in its class due to its low sample variation, outstanding imaging performance, and superior build quality.

    With the same uncompromising performance that makes all Otus lenses stand out, the ZEISS Otus 1.4/100 is a truly exceptional lens. A lens that is a reflection of the comprehensive expertise and extensive experience of ZEISS.

    Although developed for 35 mm full-frame cameras, the Otus® 1.4/100 gives you the quality and look of a medium-format system.

    Whether in the studio or on location, this lens stands out in every situation thanks to its high resolution and excellent sharpness – even at the maximum aperture of f/1.4.

    Whether portrait or product photography, the bokeh will impress you. The apochromatic lens design with aspherical lenses and special glass prevents almost all conceivable aberrations. In addition, the high-quality coating keeps the contrast high, even when shooting against the light, and minimizes lens flare.
