ZEISS Otus lenses were originally designed to meet the needs of demanding still photographer looking for the best image result even when shooting the lens at the largest aperture of f/1.4. With 4K productions becoming the new industry standard ZEISS Otus lenses are the first choice for ambitious filmmakers. Exceptional high contrast, practically no color fringes, no distortion and a high aperture of f/1.4 in all three lenses in the lens family make ZEISS Otus masterpiece.
The Otus lenses are ZEISS's powerful answer to the fast changing development in modern camera technology. Otus lenses are the perfect match for large sensors like RED Weapon due to their full frame (24 x 36mm) coverage as well as their incredible high resolving power.
Thanks to their extremely smooth internal focus mechanism along with a very long focus throw ZEISS Otus lenses offer a great solution for a professional cinematography set up for instance with follow focus systems. Otus lenses are the option for people who do not want to compromise in image quality. Let the only limitation be your imagination.
Aberrations caused by extreme differences between shadows and highlights are particularly obvious in images captured at night. Thanks to the outstanding correction of lateral chromatic aberration, the all three lenses in the Otus lens family handle these difficult lighting conditions with absolute perfection.
Thanks to its exceptional sharpness, the ZEISS Otus exploits the full potentials of contemporary high-resolution sensors and rewards cinematographers with images characterised by breathtaking rendition of even the finest details.
Noticeable quality and high value stability qualify ZEISS Otus lenses for decades of intense use. The high-quality craftsmanship of the all-metal mounts, the easy-to-grip focus and aperture ring and the robust front bayonet and filter threads ensure an amazing user experience.
