From DxOMark conclusion :

While it has some similarities, such as high-grade build, long focus throw, and high-quality imaging, this new high-speed 50mm Milvus isn’t designed to compete directly with its Otus equivalent. As with its predecessor, this new model is designed to offer different levels of sharpness for photographers to manipulate to their advantage. However, it is a much higher performer at full aperture, overcoming the troubling behavior of its predecessor and its rivals. It can’t match the Otus wide-open for sharpness, but it has outstanding uniformity and can deliver comparable results when stopped down — in fact, it even slightly outperforms the Otus.

The newly designed ZEISS Milvus 1.4/50 lens has ten elements in eight groups. The lens construction incorporates four anomalous partial dispersion elements and one aspherical element to control chromatic aberrations and distortions for notable clarity and sharpness throughout the aperture range.

Zeiss Milvus 50mm f/1.4 prime lens test results show that the optic measured excellent uniform sharpness at all apertures.
