Of all the eight 85mm lenses we’ve ever tested on our optical bench, the Zeiss Otus APO Planar T* 85mm f/1.4 ZF.2 (Nikon mount) and ZE (Canon mount) lenses are the largest, heaviest, and most expensive.

The Otus range from Zeiss is as much about them showing what's possible from an optical design, as it is anything else. Their 55mm and the 85mm lens are both accompanied by proclamations of them being 'the best lenses in the world' on the Zeiss website, which is quite a claim to make, and one that...

The all metal build and optical elements are stellar. It is manual focus, but the focus throw is long and incredibly smooth. I already own the 55 otus, 85 otus, and look forward o also getting the next wide angle otus.

This is got to be the best lens of all lenses that I have ever used. It is so responsive and tack sharp. It has the most amazing color and almost impossible to have a bad picture at avery turn. I used Nikon D800E and I think it uses the sensor's maximum capability.
