Such a nice lens. Such nice photos.
Here some sample shots from Paris of the new Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 1.4/35 ZM made with the Leica M 240.
The pictures are modified and reworked in Photoshop and Lightroom. Generally the Lens has no Distortion and very little vignette thefore there is no official recommendation for using the 6bit Code. I shot most of my pictures with the 6bit Code of the 35mm Summilux asph.
According to Carl Zeiss the lens will be shipped in the first week of January
