In October, Zeiss debuted the Otus 1.4/55, an impressive high-end prime designed for full-frame cameras. With a $4,000 pricetag, it was billed as “the absolute best lens in the world today.” Now Zeiss has confirmed that there’s another such lens in the works, this time an 85mm f/1.4 that will doubtless be just as expensive, and just as optically excellent.

Zeiss soft-annonced the lens by replying to a Facebook comment on its own site. A user asked about forthcoming lens focal lengths, to which Zeiss replied:

So at some point next year, Zeiss will have a portrait lens to throw into the mix, doubtless pleasing legions of full frame photographers who are willing to pay for the best of best.
