I looked at the review - very impressive at 1.4. It is the contrast between sharpness of focus plane that sets off the bokeh - aka EF 85 1.2.
However in the comparisons I looked up TDP crops of the Nikkor 58 1.4G. What's going on there !? Have you seen the price of this lens ? Nikon is currently like a child's spinning top just as it loses it's momentum; it wobbles all over the place.
Lucky for us Canon users that Zeiss are pushing the boundaries - 'cos Nikon certainly aren't.
Incidentally I believe the Otus is made in Germany; it's the other dslr 'Zeiss' lenses that are made by Cosina in Japan.
Well...I own the Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 ZE...that would be one of " the other dslr 'Zeiss' lenses that are made by Cosina in Japan", I know it is not at the level of the new Otus...but it beats any 21mm (or there-abouts, zoom or otherwise), that Canon has produced, hands down...so, I really didn't care where it was made.
