Elmar, Summarit, Sonnar, Biotar, Planar ZM, Sonnar ZM on NEX-5N

Recommended Posts

I've compared a few classical Leitz/Zeiss lenses at the NEX-5N - maybe someone ist interested:


NEX-5N and classical 50mm Zeiss / Leitz lenses


1) Leitz Elmar 5cm 1:3.5, uncoated (1936)

2) Zeiss Jena Sonnar LTM 5 cm 1:1.5, coated (1941)

3) Leitz Summarit 5cm 1:2, coated (1952)

4) Zeiss Jena Biotar 5.8cm 1:2, cooated (1953)

5) Zeiss Jena Tessar 5cm 1:2.8, coated (1956)

6) Zeiss Planar ZM 2/50mm (2005)

7) Zeiss C-Sonnar ZM 1.5/50mm (2005)


I'ts just a small comparison - but better than nothing. If someone of the native english speaking could correct my terrible English i would be more than glad - just send me a message via "contact" at artaphot.ch, including the corrected text. I will insert it as soon as possible.

Excellent comparisons. And if most English speakers' English were as good as yours Shakespeare would be proud

(No. 3 is a Summitar, not Summarit - I keep mixing up those names as well.)


Thanks fro correcting me - I've changed it
