- EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
- Aperture Range: f/1.4 to f/16
- One Aspherical Element
- Six Low Dispersion Elements
Designed without restrictions, the Canon EF-mount Otus 85mm f/1.4 ZE from ZEISS is a portrait-length prime distinguished by its apochromatic optical design and refined construction to excel in a variety of shooting situations. The short telephoto focal length pairs with the bright f/1.4 maximum aperture to afford extensive control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques, and it also benefits shooting handheld in low-light conditions. Suiting shooting at a variety of working distances, a Planar optical concept is employed, along with a floating elements system, to retain consistent sharpness and image quality throughout the focusing range. Additionally, a series of aspherical and low dispersion glass elements are also used to reduce distortion, color fringing, and aberrations for a well-corrected image quality. An enhanced ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating has also been applied to significantly reduce ghosting and lens flare for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.

What is the image circle produced by this lens? Will it cover Fuji or Hasselblad medium format sensors?
The ZEISS Otus lenses are designed for cameras using a 24mm x 36mm format and with image circles of 43.3mm. The use of these lenses on cameras with larger sensors will result in vignetting in the corners.
