Last updated February 15, 2010 - Send Feedback

The Zeiss ZM 28mm f/2.8 C-Biogon (about $1005) is a relatively inexpensive 28mm lens of very compact dimensions and light weight.

Composing with the 28/2.8 Biogon can use the optional 25/28mm ZI viewfinder, or the built in frame lines of the Leica M9. The rectangular lens hood is also advised.

Image quality

Not yet tested.

MTF charts suggest that this lens has some field curvature, typical for a 28mm design.
