  • 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.

awesome lens

  • 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.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged

  • 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.

Great "Normal" Lens

  • 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.

Exceptional pairing with MILC camera
