Only the best materials and the highest quality glass were good enough for lenses that were designed, at every stage, with one single thought in mind: to offer the highest possible performance. Achieving the simple goal of offering you something that is truly perfect. The best lenses in the world.
The Otus lenses are especially designed for modern SLR cameras with high-resolution sensors. They offer the uncompromising quality of medium format systems -- for an affordable price.

Elaborate optical corrections make for substantially less time spent in image processing and in post-production
Innovative product design for the best usability and the highest aesthetic standards
The highest image contrast -- take a closer look.
When shooting at night with large variations in brightness, chromatic aberrations become particularly
visible. Thanks to the excellent correction of lateral chromatic aberrations the bright facade of the
building is rendered perfectly. No chromatic aberrations -- the moment of truth.
Light sources that are either in front of or behind the area in focus are a particular challenge
for every lens. With the ZEISS Otus lenses the longitudinal color fringes are so faint that practically no
chromatic aberrations are visible. Medium format performance -- a previously unknown richness in detail.
Thanks to their exceptional sharpness, the Otus lenses make the most of high-resolution sensors and reward you with an impressive level of detail in your images. Down to the last pixel.
The best short tele lens in the world.
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. Look forward to sublime performance in almost every possible photographic situation.
