Zeiss Otus 100mm f/1.4 lens to be announced before Photokina 2018

Otus 100mm

A rumor reported at Nokishita suggests Zeiss will soon release a Zeiss Otus 100mm f/1,4 lens. The announcement should happen before Photokina 2018.

The Zeiss Otus 100mm f/1.4 has an APO Sonnar design, and is said to have already undergone field testing. It will come four Canon and Nikon mounts (sorry Sony folks). Filter diameter is 86mm.

Zeiss Otus lenses are a lot of things but not inexpensive, so expect the Zeiss Otus 100mm f/1,4 to be in the same price range as its siblings.

Yongnuo, well known for their inexpensive flashlights, made a new lens after the 50mm f/1.8 and 35mm f/2. The company announced at Photokina that they will soon release a 100mm f/2 for Canon DSLRs. No official announcement has so far surfaced on the web, just a small set of pictures on Yongnuo’s site.

The Yongnuo 100mm f/2 looks similar to Canon’s EF 100mm f/2, but is said to have a lower price, $170. The video below (by Photogearnews) gives you a quick look on the Yongnuo 100mm f/2.

For the time being the Yongnuo 100mm f/2 is available only on AliExpress for $171. Should be available at US retailers soon.
