Product Overview

Zeiss Otus 100mm F1.4 is a large-aperture manual-focus short telephoto prime lens for Canon EF-mount and Nikon F-mount. It covers the full-frame image circle. Introduced by Zeiss in 2019, it has 14 elements in 11 groups.
Manual focus may be limiting to some, but purists will find it much more engaging. There are also fewer things to go wrong on the long run. The Otus, per usual, comes with the smoothest focus ring ever fitted to a photographic lens.
A telephoto prime lens, the Zeiss Otus 100mm F1.4 is well suited for portrait photography. In terms of image quality, the Otus is also exceptional.

Sentiment Score 81%
Reviewers from cameralabs have found the following***:
The Zeiss Otus 100mm f1.4 is a high-end medium-length telephoto lens corrected for full-frame sensors and available in Canon EF and Nikon F mounts. It's the fourth lens in the acclaimed Otus series, joining the existing 28mm, 55mm and 85mm models. Like all Otus lenses, the lack of autofocus means this lens is best-used in live view where you can use assistance to nail the shot.

Pros
  • Excellent image quality
