I have just received a new Otus 55mm lens - Nikon Mount - from Zeiss. This was a new replacement for my lens that developed a warranty issue. My original lens got very little use and I've decided not to keep this lens and use the funds for a 90mm Rody for my Alpa. I have shot one image wide open to check for alignment which to me shows perfect alignment. I will supply the image if desired. I will also supply paperwork from Zeiss showing the order date. It is esentially perfect has not been registered and comes with all paperwork including inspection certificate. If you are looking for an Otus 55mm you can save $500.00 for what I consider a good as new lens (just a few days old). $3500.00 asking price.
