Zeiss ZM 35mm f/1.4 Distagon Lens Rendering Aperture Series: Rocky Hillside

Order: Zeiss ZM 35mm f/1.4 Distagon (black or silver)

The ZM 35/1.4 Distagon is due very soon here in the USA, so order one now if you’re hoping to get one anytime soon: this is the best ZM lens ever produced. I’m ordering on with the gorgeous silver finish.

This series is plain in subject matter, but it has several instructive goals:

  • Showing how the 35/1.4 Distagon images across the field.
  • Showing how much stopping down is needed for a scene like this to render sharply from foreground to background.
  • Showing EV-matched relative illumination across the aperture range, including the sky as is typical for outdoor use.

The subject chosen is ideal in the way it slants through the zone of focus, and offering a near and a far zone along with very fine detail throughout.

Aperture Series: Rocky Hillside (M240)

With HD and UltraHD images and large crops from ƒ/1.4 = ƒ/16.
