Zeiss ZM 35mm f/2 Biogon for Leica

Available Today

The 35mm Biogon is an extremely compact lens, especially considering its wide aperture. Its design and coatings provide excellent flare resistance and its popular for photojournalism and street photography. With a bit more distortion than some lenses, it may not be quite as good for architectural work, but then this focal length isn’t particularly suited to that work anyway.

Please Note: This lens does not come with a lens hood

This can be a very good, and very cost-effective alternative to the Leica 35mm lens offerings. First, the lens works best if you choose the “35mm Summicron pre asph” option from the selection menu (thank you, Steve Huff): without that, it vignettes rather significantly. Properly set up its quite sharp (not quite as sharp, perhaps as the Leica 35s, but very close). It renders colors a bit warmer than the Leica, too, which I prefer for landscape and street shooting. And this lens has about the least distortion of anything ever. Virtually nil.
