Excerpt: This is my second Zeiss range finder lens (ZM mount) which I can mount on my M-6, Ricoh GXR/A12M or my new Sony a7r via adaptor. I perfer this classic Planar formula in range finder format, shorter and more compact than SLR version.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I just moved from an autofocus to a rangefinder (Leica ME) and was looking for an affordable 50 mm. This is the one. It is well made and easy to work with. But as with all 50 mm you gotta get the focus right on, as the depth of field wide open is minimal.
Excerpt: I bought this and the 35mm f/2.8 for my Leica M2 and they both ROCK! Very nice construction. Smooth movements and great image quality. I love the 1/3 stops. Makes sense, don't it? I am not sure why I waited in buying these.
Excerpt: After several years of my Leica kit consisting of a fabulous f1.4 35mm and an old terrific f2.8 90mm, I found myself craving a traditional normal 50. Used Leicas are still very expensive, so I researched Voightlander and Zeiss. Finally decided on the Zeiss f2. I am delighted with the lens.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I bought this lens as the prime for a Sony Nex -6 after exhaustive research (web reviews, camera shops and even a trade show). The combo is a gift for our daughter for her High School graduation. She is an absolute shutterbug and is thrilled with the lens and camera.
Excerpt: Use this lens on a Sony NEX-7 with outstanding results. Built like a tank, silky-smooth bokeh, sharp as a tack. I've owned 3 Zeiss lenses and they consistently produce the images I find most appealing.
