The Zeiss Otus got a very pleasing (= soft), but clean/neutral Bokeh. That is all you see with the Zeiss Otus pictures. No extra characteristic, no special light point OOF...

Well, so far I'd say the comments have been in line with the measurements on DXO. Here's a chart from them comparing the D610, D4 and D3s. Comments?
Those are scores, and...
Which lens is able to resolve 54 mp?
Any lens. Even the cheapest lens in Nikon's lineup can do that, 50/1.8, and still ask for more megapixels.
Hello, Mr. Ant.

As I bought my D300 I thought Nikon put professional features in a DX camera.
It was very nice move from Nikon.
So, in 2007 I've switched from Canon to...

But, according to Mr. Claff's chart, the ideal DX DR would equal the d800
However, his chart doesn't tell you that ideal DX, or ideal anything, won't actually happen.
At low ISO the 6D has a minor amount of banding, esp compared to other Canon bodies. At High ISO it is completely absent of banding
Oh, I'm sure torture test might reveal some...

There is something else too that's hard to define in the Zeiss images, a delicacy or transparency or 3D effect somehow.

Zeiss make its cine lens and M mount lenses itself in Germany.

It might be very usable at f2.8 or f4, but for the money it should be nearly perfect and it's mediocre wide open where I would mostly want to use it.

When looking at the DXO measurements for it, I was surprised by a couple things
Don't be surprised. Just like most non-Exmor sensors, it only gets good at high ISO. At low ISO, it...

if a 135/1.8 exists on other mounts
i think a 105/1.4 is possible for fmount, espec considering nikons own decades old 135/2
Here's a 135mm F/1.5 on a Nikon - LINK.
Am I the only one not a huge fan of the bokeh? I'm new to photography
Maybe that's exactly why you don't like it? If you're new, you didn't have to suffer years (decades, even?) of...
Excellent points. The only reasonable response I can give (because I have one on order) is because "it's cool" and "it's new". For Canon users there's a more rational reason - the...
Yes but I can hand-hold the Pany 25mm on my OM-D at 1/8 for static scenes due to IBIS. The OM-D with the Pany is the best hand-held solution available today for low-light static...
