ZEISS Otus Lenses

Unmatched Sharpness and Contrast.

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.
