Otus 55mm Wow !

By: Blair Kent Vancouver
After two days with this monster on my A7s I am more than astounded. This lens is amazing and in particular indoors with no flash. Also videos are incredible with the A7S. After running with the Summilux 50mm I never thought is could be better but it is. Razor sharp and insane Bokeh.

Yes, it's a real beast but its now my goto lens. Taking it to Boston on the 19th so it should really show its colours.

If you want to see these shots they will be posted after Sept 30th, 2014.

Gotta Love Zeiss! (F-mount)

I have owned this lens for a month and in that time I have given this lens a good test run. It lives up to all the hype by yielding very sharp images at F1.4 and it serves up some of the softest Bokeh. The focus is smooth, but it has a long reach from close focus to infinity. The metal hood is nice, but it doesn't seem to lock-on very tight. All in all, I am very happy with this lens, a definite keeper for the long haul.
