Zeiss ZM 35mm f/1.4 Distagon on Nikon Z7

I’m still weak and needing rest, but in time I’ll be reporting in detail on the Zeiss ZM 35mm f/1.4 Distagon lens performance on the Nikon Z7*. I shot some material with it on my last trip that I thought I’d preview.

In brief, my expectations have been tempered by the reality that the performance of the ZM 35/1.4 is indeed impaired because of the sensor cover glass of the Nikon Z7. However, even at f/1.4 things are not terrible, and the drawing style still comes through. Stopped down, very high performance can be had, so I think some shooters looking for style of rendition at wider apertures and sharpness stopped down all in a compact package might consider it.

Lens performance evaluations go into the native lens guide, e.g. diglloyd Leica, but I’ll be discussing non-native lenses on the Nikon Z7 at some point and will give some guidance.
