Zeiss Sonnar T* Normal 50mm f/1.5 C ZM Manual Focus Lens
For Zeiss Ikon and Leica M Mount Rangefinder Cameras - Silver
The Fast and Compact Photojournalist: This standard focal length offers special qualities which make it wellsuited for portraiture. The ‘C’ designation in the C Sonnar T* 1,5/50 ZM name means both ‘compact’ and ‘classic’. The lens design and aperture geometry reflect its predecessor from the 1930s, the Sonnar 1,5/50, which was the fastest standard lens of its time. The excellent flare control inherent of the Sonnar lens design is further optimized with the ZEISS T* anti-reflection coating. This new lens stays true to its heritage, physically resembling the objectives of by gone days. With its fast aperture, taking photographs with a beautiful ‘bokeh’ that reflect the ambiance of the golden age of rangefinder photography is as simple as pressing a button.
The Zeiss 50mm f/1.5 C Sonnar T* ZM Lens is a fast, bright lens that offers well controlled distortion and produces a very accurate representation of objects. The C in its name stands for Compact, and this lens is not much bigger or heavier than the slower 50mm f/2 lens in this same range. It is a very versatile lens for photo-journalistic work in general and for available light photography in particular.
The Carl Zeiss range of T* ZM-mount lenses offers high standards in terms of performance, reliability and, of course, image quality. You can count on highly advanced flare control for crisp and brilliant images, and virtually zero geometric distortion that ensures precise accuracy when reproducing shapes, especially useful when photographing products and architecture.
