Zeiss Otus 100 mm f / 1.4 is a strong candidate for the best portrait lens on the market

Is it possible to get an image of a medium format with a full-frame lens? Zeiss has just introduced the new Otus 100 mm F / 1.4 glass and says it can.

Zeiss Otus 100 mm f / 1.4 joined to the noble Otus lens series: 28 mm, 55 mm and 85 mm. Similarly to its predecessors, it is to offer the highest possible in its class image quality as well as craftsmanship, precision and genius. All this, of course, at the price of the ten-year Passat in diesel.

The new Otus is to offer plastics as from medium format

Zeiss Otus 100 mm f / 1.4 is a manual portrait lens designed for full-frame Canon and Nikon reflex cameras. Nevertheless, the manufacturer claims that the glass is to offer plastics, as with a medium format set. By tracking the products of this brand over the years, I am able to believe in providing them.

In the middle you will find an apochromatic system with 14 lenses in 11 groups, which is supposed to eliminate the occurrence of chromatic aberration and color distortions. There were also aspherical lenses and anti-reflective coating reducing blistering and flare. The filter diameter is 86 mm, the minimum focusing distance is 1 m, and the aperture can be closed to f / 16. The dimensions of this bright glass are quite reasonable (101 × 129 mm), but the weight is up to 1.4 kg.

The lens housing Zeiss Otus 100 mm f / 1.4 is made of metal, and its modern design fits in the lines of the Otus series. The new portrait book is also distinguished by the highest quality of workmanship and impressive ergonomics. The focus ring has to work with great precision. Precise, which, after all, distinguishes manual lenses.

A few years ago I had the pleasure of visiting the headquarters and service of Zeiss in Germany, where technicians showed me the power of their lenses. The difference in the accuracy of the image sharpening with the low aperture value between a good manual lens and a similar class of glass with AF is clearly visible.

Such a difference will be clearly visible in the case of portraits taken with such a bright glass with a focal length of 100 mm. When the f / 1.4 aperture is fully opened, the difference in the point of the focus area makes even a millimeter of movement of the lens ring. Zeiss Otus 100 mm F / 1.4 has this precision ensured.
