Zeiss' Otus line is known for being some of the best glass photographers and videographers can purchase, with three currently in the line. It seems that a fourth will be added next year, the Otus 100mm f/1.4.
The leaked pictures first appeared on Nokishita Camera, well known for its generally reliable rumors news and leaks. Currently, Zeiss has three lenses in the Otus lineup, the 28mm f/1.4, the 55mm f/1.4, and the 85mm f/1.4. All are known for being manual focus lenses with extremely high optical quality and wide-open sharpness.
Now, it appears a 100mm f/1.4 version will be added to the line. Both the Sigma 105mm f/1.4 and Nikon 105mm f/1.4 have been very well received and seem to show manufacturers being more willing to push into longer focal lengths at the f/1.4 aperture. While there's no information regarding the price yet, there's no doubt the Zeiss version will be very expensive, but if it follows the Otus tradition, it'll also be quite the stunning lens. There's also no word on an exact release date, but it looks to be at some point in 2019.
