A versatile pair of high-performance lenses for Nikon F-mount DSLRs, this Zeiss Otus ZF.2 Bundle includes normal and portrait-length primes, along with a dedicated hard protective transport case and two lens gears for use with follow focuses when recording video.
Representing a slightly longer-than-normal focal length, the first lens in the bundle is the Otus 55mm f/1.4 ZF.2, which features an apochromatic design and employs a Distagon optical concept in order to produce well-corrected imagery. Anomalous partial dispersion glass is used to control aberrations, and a floating elements system maintains sharpness and resolution throughout the focusing range. Second, this bundle also includes the Otus 85mm f/1.4 ZF.2, which is a bright portrait-length lens utilizing a Planar design. This apochromat also employs aspherical and anomalous partial dispersion glass, as well as a T* coating, for a high degree of sharpness and clarity. Both of these manual focus lenses are further characterized by robust metal housings and rubber focusing rings for enhanced control, as well as bright yellow-colored focusing scales for ease of use.
Included with the two lenses is a dedicated Otus Transport Case, which accommodates each of the lenses, as well as an optional third lens, during storage or travel. Additionally, one medium and one large Lens Gear are also included for refined focusing control in conjunction with follow focuses during video recording.
55mm f/1.4 Otus Distagon T* Lens for Nikon F Mount
The Nikon F Mount 55mm f/1.4 Otus Distagon T* Lens from Zeiss is a standard focal length premium lens optimized for full-format DSLR camera sensors. A wide maximum aperture combined with Zeiss' renowned optical glass and T* lens coating allow the 55mm f/1.4 to transmit an impressive degree of detail and color rendition even in low light situations. A floating element design equips the lens for consistent image quality, minimal aberration and field distortion throughout the focus range.
Complementing the premium optics of the 55mm f/1.4 Otus lens is a metal lens housing as evidence of a build quality that matches the lens's imaging prowess. Additionally, an all-metal focusing mechanism with an extended rotation angle allows precise manual focusing from 20" to infinity. Borrowing from their cinema lenses, Zeiss labels the focus scale with highly-visible yellow markings. The rubberized focus ring improves tactile feedback and helps to enable exact focus placement.
Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture for shallow depth of field and low-light performance
Engineered for optimal image quality using a DSLR with a full-frame sensor
Zeiss T* anti-reflective coated lens system enhances image contrast and clarity
Floating element design with 12 elements in 10 groups
All-metal internal focus mechanism with extended angle of rotation for precise focus placement
Otus 85mm f/1.4 Apo Planar T* ZF.2 Lens for Nikon F Mount
A portrait-length lens with no optical compromises, the Nikon F-mount Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 Apo Planar T* ZF.2 Lens resembles its namesake and seeks to deliver notable performance in any situation. Based on the Planar design, this apochromat incorporates one aspherical element and six elements made from anomalous partial dispersion glass in order to effectively suppress chromatic and spherical aberrations throughout the focus and aperture ranges. Additionally, a floating element design is also employed and a Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating has been applied to individual lens elements for consistent sharpness and image clarity. As a high-precision tool, the Otus 85mm f/1.4 also features a refined physical construction to endure use in trying conditions.
The longer-than-normal focal length pairs well with the fast f/1.4 maximum aperture to enable precise control over focus position for shallow depth of field applications. Accentuating the range of control, this manual focus lens is complemented by haptic design elements, including a long rotational focus throw, rubberized focus ring, and an all-metal lens barrel with high-visibility yellow scale markings. This ZF.2-series lens is dedicated to Nikon F-mount cameras, and features an electronic interface to support camera-based adjustment over exposure settings.
Prime portrait-length lens designed for Nikon F-mount FX-format DSLRs and 35mm film cameras. It is also compatible with DX-format DSLRs, where it will provide a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 127.5mm.
Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also enables extensive control over focus placement for shallow depth of field and selective focus applications.
One aspherical element and six elements made from anomalous partial dispersion glass help to suppress chromatic aberrations for greater clarity and color accuracy around subject edges, regardless of the aperture setting in use.
Based on the Planar optical concept, this apochromatic lens virtually eliminates both chromatic and spherical aberrations in order to reduce color fringing and color artifacts in front of and behind the plane of focus.
A floating element design places variable air gaps between select lens groups to realize consistent performance throughout the focusing range, from 2.6' to infinity.
Zeiss T* anti-reflective coatings have been applied to each lens surface to help minimize reflections in order to provide greater image clarity, contrast, and color fidelity.
Manual focus design is accentuated by a rubberized focusing ring, 261° focus ring rotational angle, an inset dial window, and bright, high-visibility yellow depth of field and distance scale markings.
An internal focusing mechanism maintains the overall lens length and, benefitting the use of circular polarizers and graduated neutral density filters, the front filter thread does not rotate during use.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality.
The sophisticated optical system is housed within an all-metal lens barrel, which is built with the narrowest of design tolerances for refined precision and durability.
Aperture control ring features a locking position at the smallest aperture (f/16) to permit camera-based control over aperture values.
This ZF.2-series lens supports Nikon DSLRs' electronic interface for camera-based control over exposure settings and in-camera focus confirmation.
Otus Transport Case
Keep a trio of the finest lenses protected with this custom Otus Transport Case from Zeiss. Featuring a waterproof design with a neoprene O-ring and a foam inlay with space for the Otus 28mm, 55mm, and 85mm lenses, this case will ensure your lenses are safe from vibration and shock during storage and transport. It also features a top handle for comfortable carrying.
Lens Gear (Medium)
Transform any of your lenses into cinema-ready optics with this medium Lens Gear from Zeiss. Designed to slide onto lenses measuring 78-84mm in diameter, this ring allows you to easily equip a lens with an industry-standard 0.8 Mod gear that will enable to use of a follow focus system for smooth, deliberate focus pulls. It attaches quickly and without the use of any tools thanks to a twist-tightening mechanism. A rubber-covered GumGum is included as well, which can allow users to fit the gear on smaller diameter lenses measuring 76-82mm in addition to protecting the lens' focusing ring from scratches and other damage. Additionally, this piece of equipment is very durable, featuring a lightweight aluminum construction with a hardened surface coating.
