I really like it on my M8. I only wish Zeiss could make a f/2 or f/1.4 version.

(no sharpening)

I had one as well. Great lens optically--super high contrast, razor sharp. Just not a big fan of the 28mm focal length.

when i got the rd1 i thought i needed something wider, like a 25.

this was before i had the rd1 figured out in my head.

the zm 28 was a great lens, seemed a bit under appreciated by many, but i think people compared it to the zm 25 which is an exceptional lens.

but now, i'm happy with the two cv 28s that i have...big and small, fast and slow.

I received the 28mm biogon and I find it to be, so far, a wonderful lens...especially compared to the Voigtlander Ultron f/2.

Do you mind elaborating a little on this? Do you own both?

Thanks JS

Yes, I owned the Ultron before obtaining the Zeiss. I always felt the Ultron was so soft wide open or at 2.8 when the Zeiss isn't. I also feel the Zeiss distorts less than the Ultron. Of course, I didn't do any tests, this is just my opinion after using them. I like sharp, modern lenses and prefer less distortion. Others may not.

Yeah gotta say it's hard to fault any Zeiss lens whereas the VC's are hit and miss at times.

You have to be careful with the CV lenses as there is a lot of sample variation. This particular lens seems more susceptible to it than most; I went through several copies before I found a really good one. Most had decentering problems. Once I had a good copy, I found it was very sharp, although not as sharp as the Zeiss. At f/2.8 it was very nice, but the corners aren't as sharp as the Zeiss. For a landscape lens, I certainly prefer the Zeiss, which I just recently picked up. The 28/2 did have a way of drawing that I really liked...I do miss that sometimes.

Can anyone show or describe character differences between ZM 28/2.8 and CV 28/3.5?

I just picked up a copy of this lens when I was in London a few weeks ago for work. I really like it; very nice rendering and clearly a different style than the Leica or CV lenses.

I've had both, but never compared them side by side. The 28/3.5 is super compact and very sharp. However, on FF, the corners are a bit soft wide open, and don't fully sharpen up until f/5.6. The Zeiss is very sharp out in the corners even wide open and is all but perfect in the corners at f/4.

Here's one from my 28/2.8 ZM that makes my entry into today's 'Rangefinder Chronicles' blog



For more information, please check my blog:
http://rangefinderchronicles.blogspot.com

I shall do a comparison between the Zeiss 28/2.8 and the CV 28/3.5 , as well as the the old CV Ulton 28/1.9, which I have, on my blog at some time in the future - must do some comparisons between the Zeiss 50mm Planar and Leica 50mm Summicron, as well as between various 35mm lenses, first

I've had the lens for about a week now, and I'm absolutely amazed by it! Here are some pictures, taken with a Leica M8:

I had a hard time with this lens on the R-D1. We get along better on the M8:

That is a very very beautiful portrait! I like the low contrast and muted colours very much.
