Zeiss Otus 85/1.4 coming in 2014 + wide angel to follow
« on: January 07, 2014, 05:00:30 PM »
Here´s confirmation that the Otus 55/1.4 will be followed by an 85/1.4. Zeiss have confirmed on their Facebook that the 85 will be available in 2014. In the video attached, they also say that a unspecific wide angel/1.4 will follow. It their quality is anything like the 55/1.4, I´ll que up for them.

Interesting, thanks for sharing. It makes me think if I should finally invest into Canon 85 1.2ii or wait till this Otus 85 1.4 is released. But ~3000 euros makes 85L look cheap  ;)

I'll be saving up the wide angle, which I presume is coming in 2015.  I'm sure they can top the 85L, but I love the thing and have little desire to replace it.

P.S. nice "wide angel" reference LOL!

Now if they just had AF there would be no excuse to buy anything else. Besides the price that is...

unspecific wide angel

go go go Zeiss! there's a nikkor 13mm to beat and Sigma (says their lens) is close on your heels, so you better make this one really really cheap.

I've been keeping up to date on this family of lenses when Zeiss initially started talking about them. I just drool whenever I first saw it and even blogged about it. I'm quite certain the wide-angle lens is going to be a 35mm. They already have the crazy 15mm. The best in it's class. So it makes sense if they do the 35mm.

I'm glad they are getting closer to a release date for the 85mm. I'm sure it's going to be nothing short of amazing   :D
