Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4 APO-Distagon : “Best SLR Lens”
From LensRentals review:
I won’t try to say whether the Otus is worth $4,000 to you. But I can certainly say that Zeiss did what they said they had done: gave it exceptional performance even in the corners at widest aperture. From a resolution standpoint, it is, as Zeiss said it would be, “the absolute best SLR lens in the world today.”
