An absolute highlight for those who appreciate the finer details – in a lens that also offers you all the creative freedoms you could possibly desire. With the Zeiss 85mm f1.4 Otus Lens – Canon Fit, you can look forward to sublime performance in almost every possible photographic situation.
The Zeiss 85mm f1.4 Otus Lens – Canon Fit is a superlative lens in every respect – just like every other focal length in the unique ZEISS Otus family. A lens designed and constructed with the comprehensive expertise and vast experience of ZEISS.
Features in portraits and finest details in textures are not the only things reproduced in perfect quality by the Zeiss 85mm f1.4 Otus Lens – Canon Fit. Its extremely large initial aperture is simply ideal for isolating subjects from their backgrounds. At the same time, the Zeiss 85mm f1.4 Otus Lens – Canon Fit is far more than a portrait lens. Take advantage of its high speed for available light photography, its moderate angle of view for landscapes or its close focusing distance for reproductions.
The optical correction of the Zeiss 85mm f1.4 Otus Lens – Canon Fit completely eliminates almost all possible forms of aberration – and makes every picture you take as exciting as the first, even after thousands of exposures.

The medium format look
Thanks to its exceptional sharpness, the Zeiss 85mm f1.4 Otus Lens – Canon Fit exploits the full potentials of contemporary high-resolution sensors and rewards photographers with images characterised by breathtaking rendition of even the finest details.
The ultimate in image contrast
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 floodlit facade is reproduced with absolute perfection.
Because this lens is an apochromat, chromatic aberrations (axial chromatic aberations) are corrected with elements of special glass with anomalous partial dispersion. The chromatic aberrations are therefore significantly below the defined limits. Bright-dark transitions in the image, and especially highlights, are reproduced almost completely free of color artifacts.
Virtually distortion-free optics
Dramatic perspectives and a view from extraordinary image angles – ZEISS lenses open up new composition possibilities. Distortion would disrupt the composition because straight lines, whose image does not go through the image center, would be reproduced with a curved shape. This annoying effect is accordingly and largely compensated through elaborate optical designs at all focal lengths.
No colour fringing
Sources of light located in front of or behind the plane of focus present particular challenges to every lens. In the case of the Zeiss 85mm f1.4 Otus Lens – Canon Fit, longitudinal chromatic aberration is so low that practically no colour fringing occurs.
Manually focusing a lens means controlling and therefore actively composing an image gently and precisely from your fingertips. Here, a good ergonomic design makes all the difference. ZEISS Milvus Lenses feature a large rotation angle which enables pinpoint focusing. The silent, continuous aperture setting (de-click function with ZF.2 mount) and the long focusing range lay also optimal conditions for video photography.
