Zeiss Otus 100mm f1.4 review - Samples
  • Written by

Samples

The following images were taken with the Zeiss 100mm f1.4 Otus lens mounted on a 46MP Nikon Z7 body using the Nikon FTZ adapter. The images are RAW files developed in Lightroom 8/CRAW 11 to Adobe Color profile, no lens profiles, CA-removal=ON, Noise Reduction=OFF, sharpening=50/0.5/36/10. I only did the occasional exposure compensation in post-processing. The individual exposure details are available for each image. All of the images are available to download in their original formats for analysis at Flickr. These files are for personal evaluation only and cannot be used in another publication or website without permission. Want more samples? Check out all of my high resolution Zeiss 100mm f1.4 Otus sample images.

First up is a series of portrait shots done within minutes with the new Zeiss Otus 100mm f1.4 and the Sigma 105mm f1.4 Art from the same distance. So the Sigma produces a slightly tighter crop and a little less depth-of-field than the Zeiss.
