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.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
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: As far as the ultimate lens for a rangefinder, I'm using it with a Leica M6, this is it. I'd read in reviews (Rockwell) that this lens knocked the socks off its Leica counterpart, and it does! This lens new, still costs half what a used Leica Sumi does and smokes it. Cannot recommend this enough.
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: Beautiful lens that is lightweight, well made, small in size, and perfect for my Leica M240. I use this lens handheld quite a bit for street photography as well as on a tripod for more 'formal' travel portraits.
Excerpt: I bought this lens to shoot street on my Leica M9. I could not be happier with the sharpness, its discreet size and the build quality. I feel like I saved more than $2K over the Leica alternative and got everything I wanted.
Pros: Lightweight, Price, Sharp, Small lightweight
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.
Excerpt: This is an excellent lens. I use it on my Leica M(240)-P. I seriously considered the 35 Summicron but even used that lens is close to 2 1/2 times the price of this lens. The Leica is slightly smaller but I don't see a significant difference.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, No Distortion, Strong Construction
