The Zeiss 18mm f/4 Distagon T* ZM ultra wide-angle lens allows for dynamic and unusual perspectives, making it well-suited for photographing confined interior spaces, as well as expansive landscapes. The Distagon T * 4/18 ZM is compact for its focal length and offers very good distortion correction and outstanding performance across the image frame.
The lens is coupled to the camera rangefinder and the optional 18 mm viewfinder is available for accurate image composition. Combined with a digital rangefinder camera with a 1.3 crop factor, the lens has an effective focal length of 23 mm.

Works beautifully on my M9. There's a slight colour shift problem but it is only slight when you tell the camera it's a 16/18/21 @ 18mm. I avoided buying the sweet but costly external viewfinder by shooting and reviewing the image on the backscreen and recomposing if necessary. I have noticed slight magenta fringing on contrasty details at the egdes of the frame from this lens but overall this is a great tool and for the money it's a bargain.
