Zeiss ZM Lenses

Zeiss ZM lenses are for Leica M or Zeiss IKON cameras (or mirrorless cameras with an adapter). NOT FOR Canon or Nikon DSLRs. They can be excellent choices, and the prices are very friendly relative to Leica M lenses. Some Zeiss ZM designs are exceptionally sharp, such as the 35mm f/2 Biogon, which also has exceptionally low distortion. However, the wide angle designs of 28mm and wider are generally less suitable overall due to steep ray angles on a digital sensor.

Please note that ZM lenses are available in black or silver finish (same weight, unlike Leica), but that black lenses are listed here; click the Search button to see all variants.
  • Zeiss ZM lenses for Zeiss Ikon or Leica M link to B&HSEARCH

  • Zeiss ZM 15mm ƒ/2.8 Distagon link to B&H$4,600link to Lens RentalsRENT
