Otus 85 on A7S

This may be the best portrait lens for a small camera yet See my review here http://jorgetorralba.com/2014/09/11/...f1-4-hands-on/ with pictures of the A7S and Otus 85. A marriage made in heaven

Thanks for taking the time to review. What an interesting lens, even though I will likely never be able to buy it.

Out of interest, does focus peaking help enough with manual focus/older eyes?

Its the best thing since sliced bread. Focus peak is a godsend!

Colors from Zeiss lenses are superb to begin with, but they seem to have an extra pop with this lens.

Agree! Can't argue with that.

Thank you, Jorge. Could you mail me the Otus so that I could test it too?
I would LOVE to try it out.

Get a Zeiss 55mm 1.8 FE and you will be surprised. It's probably the 2nd place winner behind the Otus. I would almost say it a close tie.
