In Guide to Zeiss the Zeiss ZF.2 15mm f/2.8 Distagon proves its optical prowess once again, this time on the 24-megapixel Leica M Typ 240.
It’s a DSLR lens for Nikon, and big on the Leica M Typ 240, but it focuses a darn sight closer than any rangefinder lens can.
One of the advantages of the Zeiss ZF.2 Nikon-mount lenses is that they can be adapted for use on many different cameras: Canon, various mirrorless options, video cameras of various types, and now the Leica M Typ 240 (focusing viable with Live View).
The ZF.2 lenses have a manual aperture ring in addition to electronic control (that manual ring to control the aperture does not exist on Zeiss ZE lenses for Canon).
Part of showing lens performance for Zeiss DSLR lenses is showing it on different cameras, Nikon and Canon mainly, but now also the Leica M Typ 240, using the Novoflex NOLEMNIKNT Lens Adapter for Nikon Lens to Leica M.
