So glad this thread is back. I hope the ZE is fine especially now that Anden has one as well. Here are a few of my favourites. Most are cross posts.

Good to see this thread back. Steve, Some others and myself posted photos from the ZE/ZF in this thread before, so I'm sure it's ok. I still miss the ZE/ZF version quite often. It's a shame that it's so big and heavy. That prevents me from using it on an A7.

you should get a c/y or rollei one, it's more manageable on the a7 (roughly the same size as the ZE 35/2). i admit it's hard to justify when you have an rx1 though:

Thanks for showing the size with an adapter Derek. It looks manageable on an A7.
The problem is that I prefer the ZE/ZF over the C/Y or Rollei version. Mostly because of the bokeh and how detailed it is stopped down. The C/Y and Rollei can look a lot harsher at mid distance. At closer ranges they look superb though.
Btw, I sold my RX1 (I'll still be around in the thread though, I have a lot of unedited photos from it).

I currently only have a Sony/Zeiss FE 35/2.8. I don't like it optically, but use it for the quick AF. I still have to get a decent 35mm lens for the A7. That's why it's such a pity that the ZE/ZF is so large and heavy.

sounds like a good excuse to be guinea pig for the new loxia 35/2.

I doubt it. I don't like what I've seen from it so far.

Heres the CY version on a Contax S2 beside the FE 58/1.8 mounted on the A7.

And besides some 35mm options. I'm no big fan of the FE 35/2.8 either. But the Voigt 35/1.2II is special.

I have thought about getting the C/Y or rollei version a thousand times, but like Jochenb I prefer the bokeh of the ZE, so I have never took the plunge. I am still a good six months away from getting an A7 anyway, so I can wait. it doesn't look like the loxia 35 f/2 will be a solution for me either. At this point I think I am most likely to get a 35 lux pre-asph for something small and keep the ZE when I want to shoot wide open with good bokeh. The Voigtlander 35 f/1.2 is still in the running, however, but as odd as it may seem I think the like the bokeh from the lux pre-asph better than the Voigtlander. As the pre-asph stops down it seems to have very nice bokeh and I am not overly offended by the funky bokeh wide open. The Voigt on the other hand has nice bokeh at times, but exactly the kind of bokeh I don't like at others, so I am torn. I got a long time to decide, however. I probably won't pick up a 35 for the A7 until I am sure I want to keep it, and for me that means about a year after I get it.
