The new Zeiss ZM 35mm f/1.4 Distagon is a joy to focus wide open, and its results at f/1.4 are outstanding. I’ve been shooting it for over a week now, also its two siblings and the Voigtlander Nokton 35/1.2 II and the Leica M 35/1.4 and 35/2.
My emphasis is on covering the ZM 35/1.4, but naturally its place among those other lenses and the relative merits of all of them are a secondary goal. Many lens characteristics matter including sharpness and contrast, flare control, flatness of field and so on.
It’s very hard to cover six 35mm lenses, but I expect to have some good insights shooting on the Leica M240
