About Zeiss

The C Sonnar T* 1.5/50 ZM lens is the modern technological reincarnation of the classical Sonnar 1.5/50, the fastest standard lens of its time, for the Contax II rangefinder camera. It is fast, very resistant to flaring and unusually compact - therefore the "C" in the lens name.

With its well controlled distortion, the lens produces a very accurate representation of objects. It can take the same filters which fit the ZM wide angle lenses with 28, 25 and 21mm focal lengths. This is a very versatile lens for photojournalistic work in general and for available light photography in particular.

Zeiss Features

  • Virtually zero geometric distortion for accurate reproduction of object shapes, particularly products and architecture
  • Reduces unintended focus shift with aperture variation for improved accuracy of rangefinder defined focus
  • Precise 10-blade aperture with 1/3 stop interval click stops ensures exact exposure
  • Wear resistant filter mount for long-term reliability in tough conditions
  • Highly advanced flare control that ensures crisp, brilliant images
  • Extremely accurate rangefinder coupling mechanism ensures optical precision, contributing to superior image quality

Questions about this item:

Laurence S  I have a Contax IIIA with the Sonnar f 1.5. the lens is starting to discolor between elements, and I have been told that this is unreparable. The bayonet mounting of your advertised replacement looks different from my lens. Will your lens fit my Contax IIIA?
Andrew R  Unfortunately no, the Leica "M" bayonet is not compatible with the Contax IIIa.
Shopper  Any info on the Contessa version by Zeiss Ikon? Thanks.
Andrew R  Not sure what you are asking, the Contessa has been out of production since 1971. This particular lens should work with most Leica and Zeiss Ikon "M" mount rangefinder cameras.
David W  Is this version optimised for f1.5 or 2.8? Thank you.
