Zeiss ZM 35mm f/1.4 Distagon: Aperture Series 'Big Leaf Maple'

Pre-order Zeiss ZM 35mm f/1.4 Distagon (black) or Zeiss ZM 35mm f/1.4 Distagon (silver) for Leica M at B&H Photo.

See the in-depth technical discussion of the new Zeiss ZM 35mm f/1.4 Distagon in Guide to Leica.

I’m packing for an extended trip to the mountains today (including a 5 day photo tour), so I’m really under time pressure, but I hope to to publish several series before I leave.

The 35/1.4 Distagon showed up yesterday, and I shot it for the first time yesterday afternoon and evening, with Ming Thein and I meeting and shooting together in person for the first time, over at Purissimma Creek Redwoods State Park.

Aperture Series: Big Leaf Maple (M240)

With HD and UltraHD images in color and black and white, and large crops, all from ƒ/1.4 through ƒ/16.

I’ll be doing more work with the Zeiss ZM 35mm f/1.4 Distagon as field shots suggest that it is now the best 35mm lens available for Leica M. And at about $2290 compared to about $5150 for the Leica Summilux, that’s a no-brainer for an M shooter.

I also have on hand the Leica 35/1.4 Summilux-M ASPH, Leica 35/2 Summicron-M ASPH, Zeiss ZM 35/2 Biogon, Zeiss ZM 35/2.8 C-Biogon and Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f/1.2 II ASPH. That’s a lot, but it should yield insights into many matters.
