Excerpt: Bought it for my Leica M-E. Just superb. Lightweight, compact. Image quality and functional qualities are all phenomenal. Only downsides are (a) it has a dodgy lenscap -- tough to take on & off, (b) doesn't come with a lens shade and buying the proper one isn't inexpensive.
Excerpt: What a great little lens!!! It's small, light, sharp, built like a little tank!
It's a fantastic fantastic fantastic lens! I'm very happy with it! I use it with my
Fuji X-T1 and colors come out great! The Black and Whites are amazing!
Great lens to use for street photography.
Excerpt: Small, sharp, light. I use this lens on leica rangefinders. A lot less expensive than Leica equivalent and excellent image quality. I feel ok about traveling anywhere with this lens- frankly, if it's broken or stolen it's considerably less of a loss. I find the handling to be just fine.
Excerpt: I have been using this lens on a Sony a7II body to take landscape shots in bright light and also to shoot indoors in dim lighting. Image quality is excellent. The lens is easy to focus and (when in focus) produces sharp images with great color across its entire aperture range.
Excerpt: Wonderfully sharp images from both lenses, especially the 35, with good build quality and a nice, compact design. Wasn't too happy with the narrow, somewhat awkwardly placed focus and aperature rings.
Excerpt: I've been shooting on this lens for about 9 months now, which was bought as a general purpose 35mm to start out on a Range Finder. Optically this lens is outstanding and stays fantastically sharp, even at f/2. I now shoot predominately street photography, which is where this lens can fall down.
Excerpt: I sent this lens back to Zeiss USA for the gritty focus smoothness as noted in earlier review - despite it being well out of warranty. The ZEISS USA rep bent over backwards to send lens back to Japan wher it was serviced cleaned disassembled reassembled etc.
