Cute but not for me.

  • Excerpt: If you're looking for an extremely compact lens at the expense of some features. I got this lens with the intention of using it on my A7S for both photos and video. As a photo lens its very good I had no complaints other than the close focus is 3' when a lot of other 50mm's can focus to around 18".

Why wasn't it included with the lens?

  • Excerpt: Bottom Line: It's a lens hood.. it prevents unwanted glare and it should have just been provided with the lens itself. We already paid $ for the lens and this small piece of metal should have just come along as a package deal.

A nostalgic feel.

  • Summary: I have multiple canon lens and recently got this zeiss for my new fujifilm x-t1. This is by far the best lens I ever had. A lot of people don't understand how important this lens and the artistic property it has until you try it.

Nothing Beats a Sonnar

Raymond Larose, Amazon
11 December 2014
  • Summary: As always, Zeiss has not let me down in build quality. As always, built like a tank. Though this lens is little, it’d make a formidable weapon in a fight to whip at someone’s head. I’m always impressed at the weight of their glass.

Photography is art. This lens creates art.

  • Summary: This lens is magical. It crates portraits that flatter with an artistic, painterly quality. Bokeh is glorious. I use it on an M240 and don't really worry much about the whole "focus shift" thing - I just shot like any other lens and the photos are fantastic, but if you are a pixel peeper it may not...

Excellent Value & Performance

  • Excerpt: Artistic lens that produces glow and luminescence. Some softness at edges, but can be mitigated with technique and composition.

Great hood but should come standard

  • Excerpt: This is a great lens hood, sturdy, well built. But I can't help but thinking this should come standard with all the ZM lenses.

Zeiss 50mm Sonnar Metal Hood

Larry, B&H Photo
30 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Really great hood. All metal high quality. Fastens securely. I'm using with the Sonnar lens and an M6. You can see it in the lower right corner of the veiwfinder if you look. Doesn't interfere with composing. You may change filters and put the lens cap on/off with the hood mounted.

Zeiss 50mm f/1.5 Sonnar ZM for Leica M

Wyoming Bob, B&H Photo
25 July 2013
  • Excerpt: I absolutely love this lens. I had researched it extensively, trying to decide between the Zeiss f/2 Planar and this f/1.5 Sonnar. I was very concerned about the focus shift issue for this Sonnar vs the seeming lack of complications (and the reliable sharpness) of the Planar.
