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.

    Very compact. All-metal build. Extremely sharp at all apertures.

  • -

    Manual focus only. Lens hood not incuded.

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.

The Zeiss C Biogon T* 35mm f/2.8 is supposed to deliver great images on film but it doesn't really harmonize well with the Sony sensor of the NEX-5. The center image quality is simply great even at max.

Bought it for my Leica M-E. Just superb. Lightweight, compact. Image quality and functional qualities are all phenomenal. Only downsides are (a) it has a dodgy lenscap -- tough to take on & off, (b) doesn't come with a lens shade and buying the proper one isn't inexpensive.

Compact - check Sharp as a tack - check Short focusing throw - check Balanced on Leica M cameras - check Sharp wide open - check Ungodly sharp at f5.6-f8 - check 1/5 the cost of competitor - check I cannot relate to any review that doesn't give this lens five stars. Sharp as my summilux f1.4.

Not as good as I thought. Reading lots of good reviews about this lens I bought it 2 years ago. After 2 years it already developed fungus. I have to admit I am living in a humid area but this lens is the only one affected. All my original Leica Lenses dont show any signs of fungus what so ever.

It's a good basic lens if you're looking for a M mount lenses. High quality, very sharp.

Small, sharp, light. I use this lens on leica rangefinders. A lot less expensive than Leica equivalent and excellent image quality. I feel ok about traveling anywhere with this lens- frankly, if it's broken or stolen it's considerably less of a loss. I find the handling to be just fine.

I have been using this lens on a Sony a7II body to take landscape shots in bright light and also to shoot indoors in dim lighting. Image quality is excellent. The lens is easy to focus and (when in focus) produces sharp images with great color across its entire aperture range.

Wonderfully sharp images from both lenses, especially the 35, with good build quality and a nice, compact design. Wasn't too happy with the narrow, somewhat awkwardly placed focus and aperature rings.
