Guide to Zeiss ZF/ZE Lenses updated for ZE 35/2 Distagon

To my Guide to Zeiss ZF/ZE Lenses, I’ve added two new pages of examples for the Zeiss 35mm f/2 Distagon: Mountains, and Criticality of Infinity Focus. The latter study should be of benefit to anyone and everyone using a manual focus lens.

Silver Creek Canyon Cottonwood
Canon 5D Mark II + Zeiss ZE 35mm f/2 Distagon

Like, the 28/2 Distagon, ergonomics of the 35/2 are outstanding. For my hands, the ZE 28/2 and 35/2 Distagon are an unusually nice match for the Canon bodies in size and feel; just about perfect.

Update: on paper, the 35/2 Distagon is fairly close to the 50/2 Makro-Planar in terms of coverage, but in substance the two lenses shoot very differently in terms of close-up range, distortion, and field of view. So I personally have no issue having both the 35/2 and the 50/2. However, if you’re looking for a triplet of lenses spanning a widely-spaced range, then consider the 21/2.8 Distagon, 28/2 Distagon and 50/2 Makro-Planar (50/2 not yet available for Canon). Fill that range in later with the 35/2 Distagon once you get a feel for the “gap”. If you’re shooting a 1.3x or 1.5X crops sensor, then the 35/2 becomes your “normal” lens, and 50mm become a short telephoto.

See my wish lists at B&H Photo for all the Zeiss ZE and Zeiss ZF.2/ZF lenses (see all wish lists at left).
