I rented the the Zeiss Otus 55mm f/14 for the Thanksgiving holiday and I was shooting these Grand Vista compositions at f1.4 and there was no need to stop down in order to get sharp corners.
Any examples for us? I'd love to see grand vistas with the Otus.
Your comment may be tongue in cheek but I'll forge ahead in a serious manner.
I haven't processed that trip yet. I am still working on my October Zion NP trip.
However, in the meantime, there are many, many Grand Vista-type examples on the web including many from review sites who reviewed the Otus 55mm as 'across the frame' sharpness @ f1.4 is one of the lens' most notable features. I am surprised anyone is surprised about this. It was pretty big news.
I most likely will not buy the lens for reasons including the fact that 55mm is sort of awkward for me and the lens wasn't focus-friendly for me.
