Zeiss 85mm f/4 ZM Tele-Tessar T* User Reviews

As sharp as the Apo-Summicron M
“I wanted a lighter travel 90mm lens as I was leaving the 500g Leica Summicron out of the bag too often. The Zeiss 85mm lens is just as sharp and contrasty all the way into the edges even open at f/4. The lens hood is reversible keeping things compact for carrying; only down side is the hood sits in place, but does not lock in place in the reversed position.” – by Leica with Film
