Crisp and clean

Ellwood, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This is a great lens. Color is good, resolution sharp, build is top notch. I like everything about this lens. I give it 4 stars only because it doesn't have the 6 bit coding for Leica (set manually for 24/2.8) and the lens cap could be improved. The glass itself is great.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Great color, Lightweight, Strong Construction, Very Sharp
  • Cons: Lens cap

Another Zeiss Gem!

  • Excerpt: I use Zeiss exclusively for my Leicas. (I have nothing against Leica lenses except the price.) The 25mm is a wonderful lens. I favor wides, so the 25 is like a 35 for me. If you not into wides very much the 25 may be a good choice for you.

Brilliant micro four thirds "normal"

  • Excerpt: I'm using this on my Olympus E-PL5 as my normal lens, and the results are great. Sharp, contrasty, with a lot of depth to the photos. Build quality is perfect, it's a precision instrument. Focus is smooth with no play. The silver version is really attractive and easy to read.
  • Pros: Durable, Image quality
  • Cons: Heavy, Vignetting

Get this, forget anything 28~35mm

Leiss, B&H Photo
18 April 2012
  • Excerpt: After using this lens, I sold my tri-elmar 28-35-50mm. Don'tget me wrong, the tri-elmar 28-35-50mm is a must have. G read the review on it. But comparing the image, I can't help but taking the trouble of switching between this Biogm 25mm and Summicron 50mm.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Beautiful Images with M8

Timmyjoe, B&H Photo
12 January 2012
  • Excerpt: This is a great lens for use with the Leica M8 camera. But you need to encode it as a 24mm Leica Elemarit. Once encoded, with a 46mm IR/Cut filter in place, the colors are vibrant and beautiful. Without the encoding and IR/Cut filter, the colors are somewhat off.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Zeiss 25mm 2.8 Biogon ZM

je, B&H Photo
16 April 2011
  • Excerpt: This is my fourth Zeiss ZM lens and is top-notch as are the others. Mechanical and image quality is simply great.I really like the Zeiss "look". I use this wide angle for close-in, crowded, pre-focused street photography and for scenics. Sharpness and color rendering is superb.
  • Pros: Accurate, Great depth of field, Small and light, Strong Construction
  • Cons: none

Tack sharp, excellent build, great lens.

Josh, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I use the Biogon 25mm as a roughly 33mm equivalent on my Leica M8.2. A perfect moderate wide-angle for the M8M8.2. Right when I opened the package I noticed the solid build and handling of the lens. It's a great size and weight for the Leica M System. After my first couple of shots I was sold.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Sharp Focus, Strong Construction
