The Zeiss ZE 55mm f/1.4 Otus Distagon is a premium, fast-aperture, manual-focus prime lens designed for high-resolution Canon DSLRs. Key features include:

  • Advanced optical design for high-quality images

  • Great low-light performance and shallow depth of field

  • Manual focus with internal-focusing mechanism

  • High-quality all-metal build

High-Quality Optics. The Zeiss ZE 55mm f/1.4 Otus Distagon for Canon features a complex Distagon optical formula to provide extremely high image quality. While the Distagon design was previously only used in wider angle lenses, Zeiss adapted this formula to the normal-range focal length to ensure the highest optical performance. This design incorporates APOoptics to ensure optimum color performance and image contrast.

High Resolving Power. The Otus line of lenses is designed for high-resolution full-frame DSLRs. The advanced optics produce the highest possible image sharpness across the image plane at all apertures.

Fast Aperture. The f/1.4 aperture provides stellar low-light performance with a shallow depth-of-field.

Premium Build. An all-metal lens housing gives the ZE 55mm f/1.4 Otus a premium feel. Its rubberized manual focus ring offers precision focus adjustment and highly visible focus-scale markings that are easy to see even in very low light.

Please note, this lens is MANUAL FOCUS ONLY!
