Carl Zeiss C Biogon T* 2.8/35 ZM Lens

The new Carl Zeiss C Biogon T* 2.8/35 ZM lens is primarily for the Zeiss Ikon rangefinder camera using the 24x36mm format on 35mm film.

The company touts its perfect images even at full aperture. The new lens complements the compact C Biogon T* 4.5/21 ZM lens to create the ideal equipment for a wide range of applications such as documentation and architecture photography, according to Carl Zeiss.

The ZM lens series from Carl Zeiss is suitable for cameras with M-bayonet. As with the other lenses in this line, the C Biogon T* 2,8/35 ZM features an intuitive operating concept, a robust all-metal frame and a precise, noticeable click in 1/3 aperture stops.

The new lens is scheduled to begin shipping in the middle of this year. It will retail at $817, MSRP.
