DXOMark has completed their review of the Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 Apo Planar T* for both Canon and Nikon. As you would expect, this lens is an absolute gem when it comes to image quality. It easily outperforms all the 85mm lenses from both Canon & Nikon in optical tests. How that all translates in the field is up to the photographer.

DXOMark says:
“The new Otus 85mm is without question the most desirable and best performing 85mm portrait lens available but at $4,490 it’s not for those without deep pockets. It’s also rather large and bulky (although it’s remarkably well balanced on the D800 models), and it lacks the convenience of autofocus. While that may not be an issue for most enthusiasts or professionals (particularly as AF is at best difficult with f1.4 models) it’s likely to further limit its appeal, even if the real reason is obvious.”
