    Zeiss 50/1.5 C-Sonnar

    Considering a purchase of the ZM 50/1.5 C-Sonnar. Anyone here have any experience with this lens?

    There are a bunch of threads on the rangefinder forum, like this one here:

    I've been following this too as I am interested, I love the look of the old sonnars, and Jup 3's too. Oh how I wish they would put this lens into an SLR mount...

    Love my Sonnar

    I have had the ZM T* 50mm f/1.5 Sonnar for about a month now, and have absolutely no complaints. I have not experienced any of the focusing difficulties that others have described. The pictures I have taken have been tack sharp, the OOF is creamy and beautiful, and the transition from sharp to soft very natural in appearance. I am extremely pleased with this lens. It has become my 50mm of choice, relegating the Leica 50mm f/1.4 ASPH to uses requiring clinical sharpness without the Sonnar signature. I recommend it highly.

    Thanks for the feedback. How is the performance at the minimum focus distance?

    minimum focus distance

    I have had no trouble at minimum distance, although be aware that the lens only focuses to 0.9 meter (not too stellar for a 50).
