The Carl Zeiss C Biogon T* 2,8/35 ZM is a compact lens for rangefinder cameras with a moderate wide-angle field of view. It's extremely sharp from edge to edge, and worthy of our Editors' Choice award.

This Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 C Biogon ZM is optically superb, but its unique filter size makes it a bear to deploy as part of a larger system. I have a real problem with having to buy and carry a second set of 43mm filters to support this lens in actual shooting.

I wanted to get a back-up 35mm lens to use with my Leica CL & M2. This lens is nothing short of astounding. It equals the performance of the Leica 35mm f/2.0 pre-asph Summicron. I have a Summicron, and I did side-by-side comparisons.The Biogon is extremely well built, with smooth focusing and f/stop...
