This aperture series from f/1.4 through f/16 looks at total image quality and especially sharpness on a 3D landscape scene.
The Zeiss ZM 35mm f/1.4 Distagon is one of the finest rangefinder lenses available for the Leica M cameras (best or nearly so)*. But can it deliver the goods for the demanding resolution of the 60-megapixel Leica M11?
Includes images up to full resolution from f/1.4 to f/16, plus a 2-frame focus stack at f/9, plus crops.
Leica M11 image quality at ISO 64 is spectacularly good. If you’re an M shooter, you must have this camera! I’d love to own one, but it’s too far out of range for me.
* Until the appearance of the Leica 35mm f/2 APO-Summicron-M ASPH and Voigtlander offerings, I would have called the ZM35/1.4 king-of-the-heap. But probably the Leica 35/2 APO-Summicron-M ASPH is superior—not yet tested as I write this.
