6-way Shootout at 35mm: Zeiss ZM 35/1.4 Distagon, 35/2 Biogon, 35/2.8 C-Biogon, Voigtlander Nokton 35/1.2, Leica 35/1.4 Summilux, Leica 35/2 Summicron

Order Zeiss ZM 35mm f/1.4 Distagon for Leica M at B&H Photo. See also gear pages for other Leica M cameras / lenses.

This massive 6-way comparison includes extensive commentary on the practical merits of these six lenses using a subject that is revealing of key lens behaviors. It is also particularly useful for evaluating bokeh.

Taken at close range, this series is an ideal complement to the prior 6-way Wyman Cabin comparison. Together, these two comparisons are surely themselves alone worth the price of Guide to Leica alone for anyone researching a 35mm lens for Leica M.
