Zeiss will announce a new Zeiss Otus 28mm f/1.4 lens between October 12 and October 16. For the time being we do not have any specs, just an announcement date that’s very likely to be real. This will not be a budget lens. The Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 sells for around $4,400 and the Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4 for almost $4,000. The new Zeiss Otus 28mm f/1.4 will likely have a similar price. Canon and Nikon mount versions are expected.
However, the new Sigma “Art” primes are so good that they can easily compete with Zeiss glass. Have a look how well the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens holds up against the Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4, with a price that’s a fourth of the Zeiss.[via Mirrorless Rumors]
