    Wide Angle 28mm f/2.8 Carl Zeiss Distagon T* This lightweight wideangle lens offers high center contrast even with the aperture fully opened.. This is a beautifull lens that posseses a superb creamy bokeh (Japanese word for smooth blurriness with discernable detail in the out of focus areas), yet it has razor sharpness where its focused on. According to those that know ,the only other lenses that might exceed the contrast and tonality of this lens are the two Leica Ms (28mm f/2.8 and f/2 asph), the Leica R 28mm f/2.8 Elmarit

    Its a sure winner in terms of cost/performance, too.This model has a C/Y bayonet mount but it can be adapted to Canon EOS with an adapter that I have and will be offering in a future posting . This lens has become hard to find as fine art photographers have found that it mates beautifully and synergistically with the imaging characteristics of the new breed of full frame sensors of the Canon Mark II series. This lens has acquired a perceived value to those who know and value the image quality that can be obtained with it and are willing to pay to have it.

    excellent lens and a great price!!! all my lenses are leica 50mm, 90mm, 35mm, but I was undecided between Leica and Zeiss. I was able to use for a couple of weeks the leica and Zeiss and is definitely the Zeiss is superior than 28mm leica!

    1. better contrast
    2. focuses closer
    3. suuuperrrr is sharp!
    4. better dynamic range in b & w and color
    5. small
    6. and price
    7. excellent construction

    this lens is not AF is manual focus. you can buy a use leica for the same price but the quality of this lens is excellent!!!

    Quality pics with a quality lens. I have not had a chance to develop any of my pics taken with the Biogon 28mm, but I can say the lens was in great shape and is very fast and responsive on my Contax G1. Given the quality of pics I have seen taken using this lens I anticipate great results.
