Zeiss ZM 35mm f/1.4 Distagon Aperture Series: Frosty Creek to Snowy Mountainside, Lundy Canyon (Leica M10-R)

This series from f/1.4 through f/16 examines imaging performance of the Zeiss ZM 35mm f/1.4 Distagon focused at far distance through an intermediate zone. Aperture f/11 is subject to moderate diffraction dulling for fine detail, and f/16 much more so. However, while f/16 is impacted in a major way on a 60MP sensor, with the 40MP sensor of the Leica M10-R, diffraction effects at f/16 remain tolerable when diffraction mitigating sharpening is used.

Zeiss ZM 35mm f/1.4 Distagon Aperture Series: Frosty Creek to Snowy Mountainside, Lundy Canyon

Includes images up to full camera resolution from f/1.4 to f/16, plus crops.

The about $2290 Zeiss ZM 35mm f/1.4 Distagon is not only the best performing lens for the Leica M10 Monochrom and Leica M10-R, at 1/4 to 1/6 the price of Leica-brand lenses it’s a ridiculously cheap 'steal' by comparison. If you were to buy only one lens for Leica M, the ZM 35/1.4 offers the best performance, best value, and is a great all-around focal length.
