A gem of a lens.
Although FE35mm is also very good, I think FE 55mm resembles more to RX1 35mm f2 lens...
He put it in his blog now w/ his conclusion:
The Otus is a monster. In DxOmark testing, it beat even the Nikon 200mm f/2 and 300/2.8.
True, but it`s also a monster in terms of size and weight. Considering all variables, the FE 55 is quite a lens.
Here is a comparison to ZM 50mm 1.5 C Sonnar:
Interestingly I checked the dof calculator and 55 1.8 has the same dof as 50 1.4.
At the same shooting distance it does. But for the same framing (ie: you move slightly back with the 55) it'll be a half stop deeper, which is still insignificant in 99.99% of shooting applications.
