Excellent shots psquared. The sharpness of those two lenses wide open is the only legitimate argument I can see for their exorbitant price. Stopped down even to f/2, the pre-ASPH versions are super sharp and only give up anything appreciable wide open.


Thanks, Rod.

Totally agree. I like the drawing of other lenses as well, but I'm very happy with these ASPH versions.

Any of you done a ZM 35 f/2 Biogon or 35 f/2.8 C-Biogon vs ZE/ZF 35 f/2 Distagon comparison? Does the Biogon have the same '3D' look?

Nice shots Luka. I really like the rendering in #4 and 5.

Excellent portrait Wilfredo

rsolti13, I know Makten has tried both the ZM 35/2 and 35/2.8, so he may be able to help. I purchased the ZM 35/2 because the ZE 35/2 is my favourite travel lens. Makten prefers the ZM 35/2.8 feels that this is a better lens. I would prefer the speed of a 35/1.4, but I will wait until I have learned more about the camera and how to use it properly.

I with you on this one, Philippe. This entire Alternative thread has cost me

This is a great thread as it shows the IQ differences between these various Leica systems and both Leica and Zeiss M glass. For what I want out of a system like this the X1 is not it. I wonder if the NEX5 with the APS-C sensor will suffice for the narrow DOF type of shooting I would want to do a lot and not P&S wide DOF shooting all the time. Looks like the Zeiss M glass does not compete well against the Leica M glass especially wide open against the fast ASPH lenses IMHO. I really love the M8 shots Psquared and Wilfredo took with the 50 Lux Asph, that is a sweet lens. Anyway, need to win the lottery before I could afford a second system based on a M9 and fast ASPH Lux lenses. !

You are right Wayne, very hard to beat the 50 Lux Asph, as well the 35 Lux Ashp. In time, I hope to pick up one second hand. For the moment the limiting factor is me and I am on a steep learning curve.

I have looked at the NEX 5 and like the images, but I feel the lenses, aren't quite there yet. Maybe the NEX 7.... I had a similar problem when the EP-1 when it first came out. I still have the EP-1/pana 20/1.7, which I am sure my son will inherit shortly.

I feel now, that I am confident, for travel to remote countries, that I will be happy to just take the M9, with a few lenses. I have done this recently with 5DII and ZE's, and weight and size for me is an issue when travelling. Still love the 5DII combo.

The most important factor, is that my fiancee, now approves of the size and form factor of the M9.

Nice side-effect of the Rangefinder design, people who look at you when you take the picture don't look like they're staring down the barrel in the resulting shot.


I really, really like how the C-Sonnar rendered the first photo
