I have the Biogon and am thinking of getting an A7ii. Are there any problems with the Biogon at wider apertures? Did you compare it to any other 35mm lenses?

It really does! I always thought the Zeiss "3D effect" is an urban myth, but your image is clearly proof that it exists. What's the cause? Better edge sharpness, better color separation?

This one was F2.2 and scanned with a nikon coolscan 8000 at 4000dpi on portra 400.

If you bite on a zeiss you'll definitely see that 3D pop in a lot of images. Not an urban myth at all

I have no problems wide open . this photo was taken at f2
the only 35 I have other then the biogon is the canon 35\2 ltm , that one also plays nicely on the plain A7.

After intensively using a 35/2 IV Leica, I am thinking about a switch.
Do you folks think that the 35/2 Biogon a good substitution?
To be clear, having said that, I am still totally content with the Leica lens, just want to try something new.

I added the Zeiss 35/2 after using a Summicron 35/2 V1 for many years, plus a pre-asph Summilux 35/1.4.

My case is a little bit different. I'm not justified to keep both lenses at the same time.
Has anyone traded your Leica lens for Zeiss, in this particular case the Biogon 35/2?

Trung,
I know this thread is about the Zeiss 35/2 but I much prefer the Zeiss 35/2.8 for being just as sharp, but smaller even if one stop slower. I got rid of the 35/2 and kept the other.
I also have the Summicron 35 v4 like you and I really think it's an ideal lens for what I like to photograph, which is mainly people and places. I think you might regret parting with your Summicron.
