|Leica 50mm f2 Summicron M V3 and the Zeiss 50mm f2 Planar ZM
The Leica 50mm f2 Summicron M V3 and the Zeiss 50mm f2 Planar ZM are both high-quality lenses for use with rangefinder cameras, that can be used on almost every mirrorless camera, but they do have some key differences.
Both lenses have similar maximum apertures and focal lengths, but the Zeiss has a bit smoother focusing, this may be due to it being a more modern lens, while the Leica lens is more compact and has a classic look.
The Leica lens is a classic design that has been in production for over 60 years and is known for its excellent build quality and smooth focusing. It is also relatively compact and lightweight.
The Zeiss lens, on the other hand, is a more modern design that is known for its sharpness and high contrast. It is also built to a very high standard, but it is slightly bigger than the Leica lens, using a 43mm filter, as opposed to Leica’s 39mm filter size.
Overall, both lenses are excellent choices for photographers looking for a high-quality, fast 50mm lens for their rangefinder camera, but the choice between them will depend on the specific needs and preferences of the photographer.
