Indeed, most of these reports I have read have implied that this lens is superiorto the Leica 24mm f2.8 ASPH M-Elmarit, its nearest competition (Like the Leica24mm lens, this Zeiss lens also accepts 46mm fliters.), with regards to contrast andresolution at all apertures and focusing distances. This lens was designed by Zeisslens designers at the company headquarters in Oberkochen, Germany, but it is beingbuilt by Cosina in Japan under strict Zeiss quality supervision. This means that thislens still deserves to be known as a Zeiss lens, in stark contrast to the cheaper,though still optically superb, Cosina-built Voigtlander lenses. I wouldnt hesitateadding this lens or any of its siblings to my Leica M rangefinder kit."
Within the past two months I have had the pleasure of trying this lens twice, havingborrowed the same lens from the Zeiss USA office. It is the best moderate wide anglelens for a 35mm rangefinder camera that I have ever used, slightly better wide openthan my Leica 24mm f2.8 ASPH M-Elmarit lens. It is not just tack sharp, but quitecontrasty too, due to its T multicoating. But there are two truly amazing things aboutthis lens. First, using a traditional lens design, Zeiss optical designers have produceda rangefinder lens that is slightly better than its Leica equivalent (Moreover, Zeissclaims on its website www.zeiss.de, that this lens resolves substantially more linesper millimeter than any other comparable lens.). Second, they have done so at a costthat is relatively cheap; hence the Biogon sells now for substantially less than one half- and indeed, almost one-third - the cost of the Leica Elmarit lens. Last, but not least,Ive judged the lens build quality to be close to what one would expect from itscomparable Leica equivalent. This is the perfect lens for a rangefinder camera userwho is interested not only in landscape and architectural photography, but also forphotojournalistic applications too.Get discounted price on Zeiss Ikon Wide Angle 25mm f/2.8 Biogon T ZM SeriesManual Focus Lens with Standard M-Mount, Black From Zeiss is eligible for freeshipping.
