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.

Big. Heavy. Bulbous. 1/3 stop clicks. Separate hood.Oh, and optically flawless. Performance-wise, this lens is without compromise. If thats you, this is it. ZEISS recommends the11604 or11606 6-bit coding on digital M bodies, by the way!

I had the privilege of testing this lens for several days at last year's Photo Plus Expo in New York City courtesy of Carl Zeiss itself. I was able to test it using Kodak TMAX 100 and TMAX 400 film on several Leica M rangefinder cameras and the results were nothing short but spectacular.

I've used this lens for about a month shooting up and down the coast of central California. This lens is extraordinary. It is highly resolving and sharp with zero vignetting, even at f1.4. Shot wide open the lens has a gorgeous band of sharpness and bokeh galore.

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.

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

Having just returned from a trip to Italy and using this lens extensively, I was motivated to pass on these words. This lens is a marvel. Outstanding saturation and contrast and subject separation. It is built remarkably well.

Excellent lens on M10 and Nikon Z 7.

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.
