Pros: Great sharpness and great contrast at all F stops. No aberrations and lovely focusing ring.

Cons: a bit expensive.

Opinion: I bought this lens six months ago and I fell in love without. I used to have my AF-S 24-120 zoom on my camera at all times but when I used this lovely lens I am keeping it on my D800E in all my travel. Very smooth focussing ring and not so heavy. I got used to its size and weight. I have shot wonderful shots of Shk Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi with it .

Pros: Made high at any aperture. Overall image rendition. Post-production minimized.

Cons: Weight and price

Opinion: Bought on occasion but, still equipped with packaging and guarantee. When you are holding a Zeiss the first thing that comes to mind is the high sharpness/resolution of the images. In my opinion the Zeiss lenses should be appreciated for their general rendering that, no optics of other manufacturers are able to supply. At the sharpness level the Otus series is currently the most you can get. Before this I used the Planar 50/1.4 But, the Otus is another level. Aberrations seem to be non-existent. The images look like sculptures because of their three-dimensionality. The separation of the planes is very well marked, very useful in the landscapes. Photos taken in direct sunlight show a good reading of the shadows without risk of having dark or too light areas. Post production work is minimized, only small exposure adjustments. The chromatic rendition I think is very balanced/natural. By taking photos to models with curly or wavy hair you are stunned by the beauty of the three-dimensional image, the same photo made with other lenses you notice a compression/crushing of the planes. I use it more for photos at the theater or in environments with soft light, in these situations brings out all the grit. I agree that addictive, buy other lenses after this is very difficult because the comparison meter is very strict. I use it in conjunction with the 135/2 Apo Sonnar which I consider other planet apart for its resosure surrender. If you have a machine with many mega pixels I think it is a right choice. Today the builders Churm out machine bodies with high mega pixels but the optics are not up to par. The manual focus requires a special attention, after a bit of training you can also take the F 1.4. I recommend a camera body with a pretty big viewfinder, example I have the Nikon D800E and I am fine. I also tried to put it on Canon but the viewfinder is different and it turns out + difficult to focus. Last consideration are the positive comments that will make on your vs. Images.

Pros: Precision focus ring. Proper weight and balance. Absence of aberrations. Sharpness and contrast.

Cons: Price?

Opinion: Like the 28mm Otus I had the opportunity to try to Photoshow Milan in October 2015 on Canon 1Dx body. From the few pictures I think a large lens. Sharp to make an impression. The contrast is great. Also the ease of use fascinates despite manual focus. It's not overly heavy. A few minutes later I tried the 50 L of Canon. It must have been a copy scrambled (are lent) but it was disappointing across the board. That 50 L is not a miracle of clarity it is known but the results I got me down a lot. Probably my palate was "flawed" dall'Otus just removed from the bayonet :-). The Otus 55mm is a temptation in its purest form.
