Its hard to mention anything revelatory given how well reviewed this lens is, so apologies it you've heard it all before. It is an excellent lens, perhaps the sharpest one I own at present with a subtly different character from modern Leica offerings.

This lens is about as good as it gets for a fast 35mm. I have the Voigtlander 35/1.2 II as well, and this completely blows it out of the water. Incredibly sharp wide open, and gets increasingly sharp stopped down.

using this on film Leica and fuji xpro2 . the lens renders images beautifully with a very smooth bokeh and great subject isolation. The microcontrast is like a classic zeiss optic. Highly recommended ; new lens is a fraction of a cost of even a used summilux 35.

I bought this lens to use on a Leica M10, as I couldn't justify paying for Leica glass. Even at $2,290 this Zeiss lens is a bargain compared to the Leica Summilux. This is a great lens. Build quality is excellent and the focus & aperture rings feel just right.

Fantastic lens for all around use. Razor sharp with wonderful bokeh.

The quality and performance of this lens hands down beats the Leica Summilux 35mm F/1.4 ASPH lens at less than half the price of the Leica.

Being a 35mm FOV junkie, I've owned the much vaunted V4 35 Summicron, 35 ASPH Cron and a 35/2.8 Summaron. Last year I rented the Zeiss 35/2.8 C-Biogon. It's a stunning lens, light and inexpensive. A no-brainer if you can live with a slower 35. It's better than the Leica ASPH Cron.

Very sharp, very contrasty, perfectly smooth bokeh, even for a 35mm. The build feels pretty much perfect, and focusing is precise. It's a big lens on a rangefinder, but the performance more than makes up for it. It is as good on film as it is on the M 240.

Zeiss makes several excellent rangefinder lenses, and the new Distagon is no exception. The Distagon ZM is incredibly sharp, even wide open. Color rending is superb, and micro-contrast is fantastic. Subjectively I would say this lens has that 'Zeiss' look: punchy colors and a bit higher contrast.

I am a professional Leica M photographer who specializes in wedding documentaries and street/travel photography. Hence 35mm and 50mm is my prefer focal length. I guess if you are reading this and looking into this lens, you may be interested in similar kind of photography genre.
