Russian Slide Projector lens modification – By Stuart Jenkins

Kind of a mixed bag as with most lenses. The shot above is the worst I could produce showing some small ghosts. With a different framing (shot below) I could completely avoid them. A hood wouldn’t really help here, as I tried shading the lens without success. Up To 70% Off! Zeiss Zm 35mm. Must See Prices Well today I’m carrying a Sony A7RMKII with a Voigtlander 65mm Lanthar and an M10p with a Zeiss 35mm 2.8 Biogon and I’m passionate about both of them equally. I was sceptical about having a range finder but there is no doubt once you master the focusing you can get equally sharp pictures just as quickly, even when they are fast moving things, like my kids : ) Don’t be put off by the snobbs who by them for badge, there enjoyable and satisfying to use.I was wondering if you have any experience with the UT modification, and if it improves on the Optosigma PCX filter.

Leica 50mm f/2 Summicron DR – Plum Blossoms – By Steven Bleistein

I’ve got them all – some nine 35mm lenses in total, and I find myself reaching for the Leica F2 ASPH unless I really need F1.4 or F2. The Zeiss Distagon is just too big and tippy. The Summicron has some detectable blue and red chromatic fringing, though not severe, and is a tad milky and blurry in the corners until you stop it down. But one never notices these things in real pictures, where the objects of interest are never at the far perimeter of the frame. At Photokina 2014 today, Zeiss has announced a long awaited new lens - the Distagon T* 1,4/35 ZM lens! At a maximum aperture of f/1.4, this lens creates a pleasing bokeh, which optically enhances the background as the main composition element. At the same time it directs attention to the main motif in the foreground. Optimized for digital sensors, the Distagon T* 1,4/35 ZM The Zeiss 35 1.4 Distagon ZM (Leica mount) Lens Review . by Cemal Sagnak. Many People belief, a Leica Camera needs native Leica lenses, although there are Alternatives by other German Companies like Carl Zeiss with a long optical history in making lenses and Rangefinder cameras That is not an easy question to answer. I actually do wonder why you chose the 2.8/24-70 GM in the first place, as the only reason to get it is being faster (which apparently you don’t need) and its nicer bokeh rendering (which you also don’t need) compared to slower zooms. I compared several manual 35mm lenses here. Best for landscapes (best contrast and across frame resolution): Zeiss ZM 35mm 1.4 + 5m Optosigma PCX filter (find out more in this article) at f/4 to f/8. Zeiss Loxia 35mm 2.0 at f/8 to f/11.

Zeiss Zm 35mm

  1. Detail improves as the aperture is narrowed. At f/2 the lens scores 2,913 lines, it improves to 3,521 lines at f/2.8, and it peaks around f/4 (3,837 lines) and f/5.6 (3,861 lines). Diffraction sets in at f/8 (3,429 lines), but you can feel comfortable shooting at f/11 (2,990 lines) and f/16 (2,400 lines) when the shot calls for it. Distortion is a complete nonissue—there is none. The Distagon is sharper than the smaller, less expensive Zeiss C Biogon 35mm at f/2.8 (2,955 lines), but when both lenses are set to f/5.6 the Distagon only shows a 100-line advantage. The C Biogon is a solid, budget alternative if you don't need to shoot at f/1.4 or f/2, and is extremely small and light (2.2 by 2 inches, 7.1 ounces).
  2. The Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 Distagon T* ZE Lens is available in Canon (reviewed) and Nikon (ZF.2) mounts. If manual focus only is not a drawback for you, I highly recommend the Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 Distagon T* ZE Lens for your 35mm needs. The price of this lens is going to keep this lens out of casual photographer's kits, but this incredibly-well-designed.

  1. We haven't had the opportunity to test the current version of the Leica Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH. in the labs yet, but I shot with the previous version (referred to as the pre-FLE version in most circles) for several years. My time with the Zeiss Distagon T* 1,4/35 ZM hasn't been as extensive, but it gives the Leica lens a serious run for its money in terms of quality. Leica's take on the lens is smaller and lighter, includes a lens hood, and may win in the ethereal area of character, but the Zeiss has plenty of character of its own. Given its price, build quality, and incredible sharpness, even at its widest aperture, the Distagon earns Editors' Choice honors. If you shoot with a rangefinder and are looking for a 35mm f/1.4 that won't put as huge of a dent in your budget as the Summilux, the Distagon is a fine way to go.
  2. or update: Zeiss does now market a bayonet-type zoom for this lens, in the ventilated style. I am enjoying my Zeiss 1,4/35mm Distagon ZM, on an M10, for shooting as varied as low-light, discreetly candid environmental portraits of my aging father, who tended to keep his home.
  3. These days, Leica lenses aren’t absolute world beaters in optical quality, as Zeiss and Voigtlander offer comparable quality M lenses, and manufacturers using other mounts can produce stunning lenses, but they offer a fantastic balance of top level optical quality in tiny, very ergonomically designed lenses. The only reason to ignore Zeiss or Voigtlander is being a snob
  4. Fabulous images H. I am totally with you on the size thing. The whole point of retrofocus designs is for SLR cameras. Why make that compromise for a rangefinder? The Biogons are perfect. I’ve just realised that I have three different Zeiss 35’s, a G Planar a C/Y Distagon and a ZM Biogon. Perhaps a comparison should be my long overdue submission to 35mmc

ZEISS Distagon T* 35mm f/1

The main question for most people will be: is this lens a Leica 35 Summilux for less than 50% of that price? I wish I could tell you, but I don’t have that lens. What I can tell you is that the Leica is 60 grams lighter and quite a bit smaller than the Zeiss. Also, the Leica comes with a lens hood, whereas the Zeiss doesn’t. For me, buying a Leica also means buying service. Rangefinders drift, lenses wear and drift and every now and then, they need calibration. With a Leica lens, you just send the whole kit to Wetzlar and they’ll take care of it.There is very slight barrel distortion which I would describe as mostly negligible. You can also use a Lightroom profile to correct this if necessary for critical shots.

Zeiss 35mm 1.4 ZM Distagon Review - Optically Awesome! - 35mm

  1. The only 35s better from Zeiss are the 35mm 1.4 Milvus and ZM 1.4 (My favourite 35 of any brand) The EF mount ZE 35mm F1.4 is also very nice, but much heavier than the 35mm F2 ZE / ZF. Of the Leica M mount Zeiss, I have the ZM F2.0 but not the faster one

Voigtlander Ultron 1.7/35: The Voigtlander VM 35mm 1.7 is a very strong competitor, flare resistance and off center sharpness in the midframe are actually better compared to the Zeiss.  So what are you giving up compared to the ZM? Obviously half a stop of speed, which might matter for some and not for others. Corners at infinity are not as good. Performance wide open at closer distances is visibly worse. Focus shift is much more apparent. Coma correction is worse. But the most obvious difference might be contrast, and it depends on your taste and your subjects what is “better” here: the ZM is very contrasty in general while the VM is a little more subtle. For architecture and landscape I prefer the ZM for portraiture one might prefer the VM. To sum up, Carl Zeiss Distagon 1.4/35 ZM is a formidable competitor to any 35mm rangefinder lens from any manufacturer. Its color fidelity, sharpness and exceptional control of distortions and aberrations amounts to outstanding image quality. Now, the most difficult part. It renders differently from its competitors, somewhat cleaner perhaps

I didn’t find many lens aberrations. No remarkable chromatic aberration and in the night shots you can see that highlights are rendered acceptably. Thanks for this post. I just ordered my Zeiss 35 1.4 ZM with a novoflex adapter. I have heard fantastic reviews of this lens. I really feel that this is better than the Zony fe 35 1.4 both in image and size Soon, Michael Reichmann will report for this publication on the Zeiss ZM family of lenses and his experiences using them with the M8. The newCarl Zeiss ZF seriesof Nikon compatible mount, manual-focus lenses is what caught my eye. Their introduction started last year with the release of the f/1.4 50mm ZF, along with the f/1.4 85mm ZF

In short – at least as far as I’d prejudged it – the Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 ZM is not the sort of lens I would choose to shoot, it’s not a focal length I frequently favour, and to top it off, it’s not the even the sort of lens I really enjoy writing about. For all these reasons – despite me getting asked about it a lot – it’s taken a long time for me to get around to a review.After reading this review, I bit the bullet and purchased this lens and the exorbitantly expensive lens hood for my recent trip to Rome and the Amalfi Coast. I took this lens, my M240, 50 Summicron and had the 35 Summicron mounted permanently on my M6. Having shot many high quality lenses, the Zeiss 35/1/4 is up there with the best I have used. The build is substantial. The lens is heavy in rangefinder terms, especially mounted to the beefy M240. I found the extra length an aid to focusing and aperture adjustment versus the less ergonomic 35 Summicron mounted on the M6 Bring up a group of images shot with the M240, and those made with the Zeiss versus the 50 Summicron are obvious. The Zeiss has intense colors and contrast and subject separation and tend to more warmth. The Summicron is also very sharp and contrasty, but Leica sharp and Leica contrasty and cooler in color tone – Leica lens shooters understand the Leica characteristics well. Bagging the M240 with the Zeiss and mounted hood using my narrow bag was a gymnastic exercise at times while the M6 with 35 Summicron fit easily in the spare space. The extra stops of light proved invaluable for indoor shots in the Vatican and street shots in the evening. I do wish my lens was black instead of silver. The bling attracts prying hands and eyes. Yes, my wallet is light as a feather now, but I will never part with the Zeiss Distagon, it is that good.

ZEISS Distagon T* 35mm f/1

  1. This question about what I could possibly find to write about is the question I’ve asked myself every single time I’ve been asked to review it. I’m not a technical lens reviewer, I don’t go into the finer details and I often don’t even notice many of the “flaws” caused by the evils that a lot of reviewers get their knickers in a twist about. In fact, the flaws I do notice, I often see as reasons to shoot a lens rather than avoid it.
  2. It’s great to see how you and your colleagues are so accessible in responding to us commentors. Thanks for the reply. As I may not have the time to spend (nor really the skill) assessing the sample quality of a Sony 35/1.4 and possibly returning the lens, I do lean towards the ZM 35/1.4. I also am a bokeh fan, even with wide angle lenses like this. Great to hear your take on the bokeh vs transition zone quality of both lenses. Also I am enamored with the possibility of one day having an M10!
  3. I remember reading somewhere once (maybe rangefinder forum?) that Cosina changed the lubricants and thread lockers that they were using on the Zeiss and Voigtlander lenses they produce a couple of years into production, so I think the odds are that all the bad things you hear are from early batches with the wrong chemicals being used, and then people just tend to parrot bad experiences they hear about. Leica people can be very funny about things like that, given how much a lot of them seem to distrust anything that wasn’t made in Germany, even stuff made by Leica

The Zeiss ZM Distagon 35/1

All these articles about range finder lenses lead me to just purchased a Leica MP240 with the 35/1.4 Distagon ZM. The lens is great on the Leica, extremely sharp WO, easy to focus, not too big, and built like a little brick. I have not tested yet on the Sony (will share impressions ASAP when the vm-e adapter arrives). Awesome lens though, definitely sharper than the 50/2 Summicron. Introduction Leica Summilux-M 35mm 1.4 Asph FLE | Zeiss Distagon ZM 35mm 1.4 T* | Voigtlander Ultron 35mm 1.7 Asph | Zeiss Loxia 35mm 2.0. We managed to gather the three most recent fast rangefinder 35mm wide angle lenses from Leica, Zeiss and Voigtlander, threw in the Zeiss Loxia and put them up against each other on the 42mp A7rII Sony Zeiss Sonnar 2.8/35 ZA T* FE: This is a full two stops slower, which is a lot. It is also smaller, has autofocus (and a fly-by-wire focusing ring), only 7 aperture blades, distortion is a little higher and bokeh seems to show more obvious onion rings. This lens is not for me, but in case you rely on autofocus this is your cheapest 35 mm option for the A7 cameras right now (albeit I think it is pretty expensive for what it offers). Zeiss has announced its a Distagon T* 35mm F1.4 ZM lens for Leica M-mount bodies. The company describes the lens as being for professional reportage photography and points out that the wide maximum aperture 'ensures the photographer is independent from the ISO limitations of his camera.' The 35mm F1.4 ZM will be available in black or silver for a recommended price of €1679.84 or $2290 exc taxes

Manually focusing a lens means controlling the image result from your fingertips. A good ergonomic design makes all the difference. The user-friendly focusing ring on ZEISS lenses with an ergonomic finger rest is perfect for fast, precise focusing. Changes are immediately visible in the viewfinder. The high-quality focusing mechanism moves smoothly without play, thus also supporting the intuitive interaction with the focal plane. So that’s what I started to do with the Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 ZM – I snapped some shots of the wife and kids around the house. And in doing so, I pretty much instantly stumbled across what I feel is this lens’s unique selling point: it has incredible three dimensional rendering. A User Review of the Zeiss 35mm Distagon f1.4 ZM on a Leica M 240. By Howard Shooter. I must confess to being a bit of a Leica fan. I love Leica and the purity of the rangefinders' back to basics approach to photography. Up until three days ago I have veered towards only Leica glass and my thoughts have been mostly positive Personally I sold my Sony Sonnar FE 35mm F2.8 ZA (Zeiss) to buy this lens , and I was not disappointed. It is not as perfect as a G Master lens but it has more character and charm and I loved mine. 5 Conclusion. Le Distagon FE 35mm F1.4 ZA est une superbe optique très attachante. Pour. De superbes fond flou très doux et crémeux, un très.

Unfortunately for the Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 ZM – based on the reviews I’d read about it already – I had formed a chunk of prejudice about it. For a start, it did seem that it was regarded as being a very high quality optic, and so by that merit alone, I’d decided it probably wasn’t going to be that interesting a lens for me to write about. Additionally, since I’m not really a fan of making my rangefinder equipment any bigger than I absolutely have to, shooting a lens that’s design ethos is around a compromise in terms of larger size in favour of higher quality, it just didn’t appeal as an overall package to me. Sony Zeiss Distagon T*FE 35mm F/1.4 ZA E-Mount Lens w/Free Acc Bundle $1,598.00 Carl Zeiss Wide-Angle Single Focus Lens For Canon 15800127 Distagon T 35Mm F2 Z So why am I writing about it now, I hear you ask. Well, funnily enough, the thing that swung it for me was finding a lot of love for another slightly bigger lens – the Voigtlander 50mm f/1.2. Don’t get me wrong, for a f/1.2 lens, the Voigtlander is fairly small. But, it’s a lot bigger that the tiny 50mm f/1.5 ZM Sonnar that I’m used to. I had never expected to find a lens that I liked even close to as much as the Sonnar, but the Voigtlander has come close – in fact, depending on the day you ask me, you might even find me saying I prefer it to the Sonnar.

Lens made of special glass with anomalous partial dispersion Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art: Not as big as as the f/1.2 version but still big compared to the Zeiss reviewed here. If you need AF and feel the f/1.2 version is too big, heavy or expensive have a look at this one.Dear Newt, I am not the biggest fan of the early ZA lenses (Sony/Zeiss 1.4/35 falls in that category): the focus ring bothers me quite a lot, the lens has significant onion ring bokeh and huge sample variation. I already tried getting a review sample nevertheless, but so far I wasn’t lucky enough to get a well centered one which I could use for a review. In terms of bokeh, especially transition zone, the Sony/Zeiss should have smoother rendering though. It depends a bit on your personal taste whether you prefer a smoother transition zone or no onion ring bokeh.

In terms of lens contrast, my experience with all of the Zeiss ZM range of lenses has been the same: they all have it in droves! Even the lenses that lack a little bit in terms of resolution – such as the 50mm ZM Sonnar – have very high contrast. The result of this is that the images it produces still look subjectively “sharp”.Add to this the high resolution found in the 35mm f/1.4 ZM, and you have what makes for a very transparent feeling bit of glass.Build quality is very nice, as is to be expected from a lens with such a high price tag. It feels very solid as it seems to be an all metal construction, which of course also adds to the substantial weight of the lens. The aperture ring has distinct 1/3 of a stop click stops and travels ~120° from f/1.4 to f/16. Personally I would prefer full or at least half stop click stops, but that might just be me. The focus ring feels very nice and from the minimum focus distance of 70 cm to infinity it travels 90°. The Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 ZM has wonderful 3d rendering. In fact, it's probably one of the best lenses I've ever used for capturing a really life-like picture. Of course, the interesting thing about 3D rendering, or 3D pop as it's often called is that it's one of those subjects that divides opinion - mostly because it's a very.

Zeiss Distagon T* 1

Sony Zeiss Distagon T* 35mm f/1.4 ZA review. Over a year and a half since the original Zeiss Sonnar T* FE 35mm f/2.8 ZA lens was released alongside Sony's Alpha 7 cameras, another 35mm focal. Conveniently, when I got in touch with Zeiss, my contact there was able to supply the lens to me quite quickly. Not only this, but it was just in time for a short trip away with the family and some friends. The benefit of this was that I could force myself out of a comfort zone for the weekend. I wouldn’t take a 50mm, I would just take the a digital and a film M-mount camera and the 35mm f/1.4 ZM and see how I got on.

These were a near-miss: I thought I was developing HP5+ at 1600, but the film ended up being Tmax 400 (Mis-labelled canister Great review, and it’s not a Sonnar! Distagon was Zeiss Oberkochen’s name for the Flektogon formula, so I wonder what the actual lens design of this lens is? Seems that a lot of the modern Zeiss lenses the names no longer reflect and actual lens design, than being for marketing. I contacted Zeiss’ head of marketing today to inquire about this. The images certainly produced the goods. Images taken with the Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 35mm F1.4 ZM irrespective of the camera. The ZM 35mm 1.4 is a rangefinder lens developed for the Leica-M digital cameras. Similar to the Voigtlander Ultron 28mm 2.0 it is not optimized for the thick filter stack in front of the A7 sensors which leads to some problems, especially a significant field curvature. This means for a flat subject when focusing at the center of the frame the corners will look blurred.

I particularly like the colors and detail in the vase of flowers by the window, the path along the stone fence toward the bridge and stone building, and your daughter along that stone wall. Also, the stream in the woods. These have inspired me to put the C/Y version of this lens on my must-acquire list, so that I may use it with my Contax SLRs (I do not own a rangefinder camera with M mount).

Hi David here. I guess I might be the one of us who does the most focus stacking. Certainly the sort of thing you suggest should work. What I sometimes do is use the optimum aperture, focus one exposure for corners and another for the centre (assuming the landscape is an infinity one). This works perfectly on a tripod. Or one centre and one midzone, if it’s a midzone dip lens. No need to use a small aperture.

Wide open there is strong vignetting of roughly 3.1 EV, stopped down to f/2.0 it improves to 2.3 EV, at f/2.8 it is 1.7 EV and at f/4.0 still 1.2 EV. This is not an unusual performance for a rangefinder lens with these parameters, but the small diameter certainly takes it’s toll here. There is a Lightroom lens profile for correcting the vignetting. Sony and Zeiss pulled out all the stops with regards to the 35mm f/1.4 Distagon ZA, and they created an exceptional lens. The 35mm f/1.4 is very sharp at f/1.4 and tack sharp to the corners stopped down, while featuring the signature Zeiss color and contrast Some other manufacturers offer lenses that Leica doesn’t really have any competition to, such as the Ultrawide lenses from Voigtlander, or the 35mm 1.2, the fastest 35mm lens for M mount. I use a Konica M-Hexanon 50mm that is every bit as good as the Summicron V4/v5 (actually on a purely MTF basis, it comes very close to the 50mm APO Cron) but has better build quality than the comparatively inconsistent V4 with slightly nicer colour and B&W rendering in my opinion due to the lens coatings. Why would I pick a Leica lens at 2-3 times the cost?

Although a bit heavy and big, I must say that this lens feels fantastic. The aperture ring is perfect: in fact, I prefer this much more solid clicking aperture ring to most of my Leica lenses. You won’t move this ring by accident and each click is just solid. With Leica, it often feels that if your lens is on the widest aperture, you can still give it a third click to the right, but it doesn’t do anything to your aperture. The third stop clicks are something you’ll have to live with. If you’re used to the half stops on Leica lenses, this might take some getting used to, but for me, I shoot my lenses wide open most of the time. Not only because I like it, but also because I shoot a lot in near-darkness situations more than I’d want to. 絞り:F1.4/ シャッタースピード:1/500秒 / ISO:100 / 使用機材:LEICA M (TYP240) + Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 35mm F1.4 ZM 『Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 35mm F1.4 ZM』は素晴らしい描写力を誇るレンズであった。絞り開放からシャープに解像するものの、その描写は実に繊細 Always a pleasure. For my A7r3, I am deciding between the native Sony/Zeiss 35mm 1.4, and this ZM 35mm 1.4 Distagon (M mount). Both the lens’ size and AF/MF are not an issue for me, and I also have a TAP AF adapter. Originally developed for SLR cameras requiring a long back focal distance for short focal lengths because of the mirror box (the distance between the back lens element and the film plane must be considerably longer than the focal length), the Distagon lenses (retrofocus design) are also ideal for mirrorless system cameras thanks to their optimized ray path. Even with longer focal lengths, the high-performance Distagon optical design enables consistently good correction all the way to the corners of the image and very low field curvature.

I am sure you will see a difference, whether that difference is worth the asking price is another matter though. A long-term review of one of my favorite lenses ever, and one of the best 35mm lenses currently available So what we can (and should) do is this: stop down first and then focus. The important thing here is: we have to check the center and the corner (or border) each time we adjust the focus. I checked this once with my lens in combination with the corresponding adapter carefully and I do know now that I have to set the lens to the left end of the infinity mark, stop down to f/8.0 and then can expect great performance across the whole frame at infinity.“Originally developed for SLR cameras requiring a long back focal distance for short focal lengths because of the mirror box (the distance between the back lens element and the film plane must be considerably longer than the focal length), the Distagon lenses (retrofocus design) are also ideal for mirrorless system cameras thanks to their optimized ray path. Even with longer focal lengths, the high-performance Distagon optical design enables consistently good correction all the way to the corners of the image and very low field curvature.”Let us imagine you are shooting a flat subject at infinity (a city from far away or some landscape) at f/1.4. The plane of focus is very thin, and as you have already seen, in our case it is also curved. Remember for all the following pictograms: Wherever the blue line merges with the red line our subject is in focus.

So, I have this lens, Hamish. Ok, the Sony/Zeiss version. It’s the first lens I bought for mirrorless (I shoot primarily digital and some film via Nikon F100 and Minolta X570). I photographed for 4-5 months using only this lens and know it like the back of my hand. It is a marvel and I’ve used it professionally to shoot a variety of portraits, both relatively closeup and environmental, as well as interiors for designers It’s crisp, clear and melts away so that the 3-D pop you write about is so notable that even someone with no interest in photography notices the effect. (Excellent images you shared, btw.) Anyway, highly, highly recommend this lens! For me, it’s up there with the Planar 50 1.4. Up for sale is SONY DISTAGON T* FE 35MM F1.4 ZA LENS showing some signs of usage on the lens outer body, but glasses are still in perfect condition, put on a Zeiss MC PROTECTOR FILTER( VF72MPAM ) from day one, so there is absolutely no scratches no hazes or fungus. Hood, carrying bag , front and rear caps all included ( all sony genuine accessories)</p> <p dir=ltr>Paid close to 2000 for the. This lens was also featured in my fast 35mm manual focus lenses comparison you might want to have a look at.You’ve heard me talking a lot about focus throws and I think this Zeiss lens is a bit on the short side. But for a reason. Most people that buy a 35mm lens will use it for reportage photography, travel photography and environmental portraits. For this kind of photography a short focus throw is useful: it allows quick focussing and the bigger depth of field will take care of slight focussing errors. With a longer and faster lens, which you’ll use for portraits, a very accurate focus is more important and that’s why these lenses usually have a longer focus throw. Although there is a tendency (at least at Leica) to make these focus throws shorter in long lenses as well. Too bad.

This is not the lenses fault as you can focus on the corners and still get decent sharpness at f/1.4 there, but your center will be blurred then. By f/8.0 you will be able to get excellent performance across the frame though, check out the next section “Achieving optimal focus at infinity with rangefinder wide angle lenses” as well.Zeiss Loxia 35mm 2.0: They share some qualities: great build quality, great contrast and sharpness stopped down, same 10-stroke sunstars. The Loxia is a bit lighter (especially when taking the necessary adapter for the ZM into account), smaller and it pretty much costs half of what the ZM does. The Loxia also offers full Exif data. I have been using the Loxia for almost a year now and wasn’t unsatisfied with it for landscape and architecture photography, but the ZM has nicer bokeh and offers a stop more, when it comes to flare resistance I might also give the point to the Loxia, but I have to take more shots with the ZM here to make up my mind. So if the maximum aperture of f/1.4 and the bokeh alone is worth the premium over the Loxia really depends on what you want to do with the lens.

I have seen great images from both lenses. Comparatively speaking Leica lens cost much more than Zeiss 15mm Distagon f/2.8 ZM and has a very different feel even though at 16mm the focal length is about the same as 15mm. Zeiss has several advantages over the Leica lens, for one, it has F/2.8 which is one full stop faster than Leica Tri-Elmar-M 16-18-21mm f/4 ASPH lens which can be a critical advantage if you are doing night time.

Hi Hamish, I’ve been quite happy with this C-Biogon. I do see the warmer rendering of the Zeiss vs. my Summarit 35 and I think where I am in the world, the warmer rendering may need some scaling back. Here are a few photos i’ve taken with it.

The use of sharp contrast and soft focus guides our eyes to the areas that you want to highlight. With the Distagon T* 1,4/35, you can create enchanting images thanks to its unique combination of a wide angle of view with a shallow depth of field. It The Distagon ( at Amazon)  measures 2.6 by 2.5 inches, weighs 13.4 ounces, and uses 49mm front filters. It's not quite as compact as Leica's take on the 35mm f/1.4 (1.8 by 2.2 inches, 11.3 ounces), but it balances well on both film and digital M rangefinders.

So when I was recently contacted by yet another person suggesting I should review the Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 ZM, I thought it about time I got round to it! Maybe I can get along with larger kit? Maybe 35mm does work for me? Maybe I would enjoy some optical near-perfection in my life? Maybe I just need to push myself out of a comfort zoom a bit?

The ZM 35/1.4 has been with me for a week now and I have made several hundred exposures with it. Time for more detailed comments than my quick initial impressions. Unlike my previous review of the immensely lovely Loxia 50/2 lens, I will not be comparing the Zeiss Distagon T* 1.4/35ZM to its competitors in this post. By itself, the lens. The Contax version of Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 35mm f/2.8 is one of the most affordable lenses, with good quality copies of the lens typically going for ~US$200 on eBay (as of April 2007). Compare that to the price of ~US$800 for its slightly wider cousin, Distagon T* 35mm f/1.4 (also in Contax mount), or to the price of ~US$900 for the new.

The Zeiss ZM Distagon 35/1.4 review. Joeri. on March 27, 2015 at 4:32 pm. Recently I had the opportunity to shoot with the brand new new Zeiss ZM Distagon 35/1.4. It was kindly loaned to me by Transcontinenta in the Netherlands and of course, I couldn't resist the temptation to accept the offer. Most people that buy a 35mm lens will use. Dedicated to the ZEISS 35mm f/1.4 Distagon T* ZM lens, this Lens Hood helps to minimize flare by deflecting stray light from entering the lens. The hood also provides additional protection to the lens from accidental impact, bumps, and scratching Now, to be fair, I didn’t test is extensively with out of focus foliage (I had better things to do with the time I spent with it) so it’s hard for me to write conclusively based on my experiences, but other reviewers seem to speak quite highly of the Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 ZM when it comes to it’s “bokeh-ball” rendering.

Its optical performance is better than the LEICA SUMMICRON-M 35mm f/2 (1979-1996) and about the same as LEICA's newest LEICA SUMMICRON-M 35mm f/2 ASPH.. The biggest gotcha with this Zeiss lens is its incompatible 43 x 0.75mm filter thread, making it very difficult to use this lens as part of a system.You'll need to step it up to 46mm, or take your. The Zeiss ZM 35mm f/1.4 Distagon is a fast-aperture, moderately wide-angle lens for Leica M-mount cameras. Key features include: Advanced optical design for high-quality images. Great for street and landscape photography. Excellent corner-to-corner sharpness. High-quality all-metal buil So all good then? Well nearly… in fact more nearly than I expected. Predictably, I did find the lens to be quite big. It’s also internal focusing – again unusual for rangefinder lenses. In my experience rangefinder lenses are almost always unit focusing, and so are smaller when focused to infinity. Not this lens, it’s big and it’s always big (on a rangefinder, at least). The Distagon T*1,4/35's extremely long-lasting and robust all-metal precision mechanics, for which Carl Zeiss is known, make this lens perfect for use on-the-go and for photo reports

The trip away was only for two days, so I shot one roll with the digital camera and one roll of Portra 800. You might say this is an inappropriate choice for a sunny day, but bloody hell did this lens help maximise the potential of the higher grain film. I think I got pretty much every ounce of potential detail out of the grain, with the only limitation being the resolution of my scanner. Look at the colours too – this is Zeiss-colour to me, and I bloody love it! Again, it just adds to the sense of real in the image.

The Zeiss 35mm/1.4 he reports has showing good lateral color correction but with less well corrected longitudinal chromatic aberration. He also reports it is a bit tricky to focus due to focus shift. Sigma's 35mm/1.4 has well controlled longitudinal chromatic aberration, and Nikon falls in between the ZF.2 and ART lenses in this regard

Thanks for the very detailed review of this beautiful lens. I have been thinking for quite a while about Kolari’s tempting UT modification for an a7RIII. I think Sony’s 42,2mpx sensor allows to take full advantage of both ZM and VM lenses, with a performance not available on any Leica digital camera, and could be a good alternative for building a stellar and unique compact kit.Regardless, some people hold the view that you do need good background separation to achieve 3D pop, and for them, this lens will definitely provide another tick in the box. It has, at least in my experience, really nice smoothly rendered bokeh.Couldn’t wait for your review, Hamish! Found a deal on one which is rare where I live so I went for it 🙂 I have a good feeling I’m gonna enjoy this one. Very curious on how it does vs. my Summarit 35.The evening prior to my trip away presented me with a moment to reflect on this previous style of photography of mine. I’d mounted the lens to my M262 and was pondering how I was going to get used to shooting a 35mm lens again in such a short period of time. The funny thing is, it’s not like I ever really stopped shooting 35mm lenses, I just started shooting them with my point & shoot cameras instead of with rangefinders. There’s a different approach of course, but thinking about how I shoot those cameras reminded me about how I used to shoot my Voigtlander 35mm f/1.4. It was all about snapping contextual shots of people in their environments.

What would you recommend? My main uses are in home candids of family and my new baby, travel and various festivals around New Orleans. Really very seldom do I take a landscape shot (so corners may not be too important for me). There’s nothing wrong with this sort of rendering, of course, and it’s fair to say that the modern Zeiss lenses I use are better than most when it comes to 3D rendering in my experiences. But the point is, I figured this 35mm f/1.4 ZM was going to be cut from that same cloth. In short, I didn’t expect it to share the sort of 3D rendering I get out of my ZM Sonnar and 28mm f/2.8 Biogon. I was absolutely wrong to make that assumption. NIKON D3S + Zeiss Distagon T* 2/35 ZF.2 @ 35mm, ISO 200, 1/100, f/8.0 Bokeh. The bokeh on the Zeiss 35mm looks pleasant for a lens of this class and focal length.

Contax Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 35mm F/1. With a 5m PCX filter stopped down to f/2.8 this lens comes very very close to the optical qualities of the 21 and 85mm Loxia lenses, which I consider pretty much the best native lenses you can get when contrast and resolution matter. On top of that you also have the option to use this lens at f/1.4 which is the reason this lens is now part of my kit instead of the Loxia 35mm 2.0.

ZEISS Milvus Distagon T* 35mm F/1.4 ZE / ZF.2 Wide-angle prime lens • Digital era T* The multi-layer coating is applied to the surface of lens elements. It boosts light transmission, ensures sharp and high contrast images, minimizes ghosting and flares. ZE ZEISS lens designed for Canon EOS SLR cameras.. The range of ZEISS T*® lenses offers the highest possible standards in terms of performance, reliability and, of course, image quality. Quite simply, they are superior in every way. You can count on highly advanced flare control for crisp and brilliant images, for example. And virtually zero geometric distortion, ensuring precise accuracy when reproducing shapes – especially useful when photographing products and architecture. I forgot to ask if you have experience with the Zeiss Biogon 2.8/35, and if the performance of this smaller lens at half the cost offers a worthy alternative. On paper it looks the part.

I use a Zeiss 35mm f/2 Biogon T* ZM on my M6. For me, ergonomics were a big factor in buying this lens and selling the 35mm Summilux Type 3 that I’d using before. Sure the Lux was tiny but I found the aperture and focus rings too close together and the setup where filters are attached to the lens hood instead of directly onto to the lens was really annoying. That Distagon gives great results but given the price and the size (it looks even bigger than the Biogon), I don’t think I’ll be buying one any time soon.

I’ve seen that previously another user was reporting not being impressed by the Eksma 10m, but unfortunately the pics are no more there to check, while in the other comprehensive article about rangefinder lenses and pcx filters, Bastian itself posted some tests with the Eksma filter claiming he was not satisfied due to a more pronounced midfield dip, but the filter was referred as Eksma 5m, not 10m.
