ZEISS Otus 1.4/28
The world's best wide-angle lens.

Like all focal lengths of the unique ZEISS Otus® family, the Otus 1.4/28 is in a class all of its own. A lens that incorporates the extensive know-how and all the experience of ZEISS. Use the Otus® 1.4/28 from ZEISS and experience the quality and look of a medium format lens. Whether you are shooting landscape, architecture or interiors, during the day or at night – this lens will provide you with high resolution and outstanding definition regardless of the situation. It is purely and simply the world's best wide-angle lens.

The optical correction of the Otus 1.4/28 prevents practically any aberration you can think of. It will just keep on fascinating you – even after many years of use and also on high-resolution systems.

In SLR systems, when extremely large image angles are needed, the distance between the rear element and the image plane must be considerably longer than the focal length – the original field of application of Distagon lenses. This advanced retrofocus design can also be put to outstanding use in modern, highly corrected lenses with longer focal lengths.
  • Distagon with 16 lens elements in 13 groups
  • Lens with aspheric surface
  • Lens made of special glass with anomalous partial dispersion
  • "Floating Elements" design
Features Otus 28mm f1.4

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.

The medium format look
Thanks to its exceptional sharpness, the ZEISS Otus exploits the full potentials of contemporary high-resolution sensors and rewards photographers with images characterised by breathtaking rendition of even the finest details.

Aspherical design
The aspherical lens design ensures consistent imaging performance throughout the entire focusing range as well as sharpness to the periphery of the image. The asphere's more complex surface profile can reduce or eliminate spherical aberration and also reduce other optical aberrations compared to a simple lens.

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.
