question

How does this Milvus 21mm compare to the Contax Zeiss 21mm? Trying to decide if I want to buy the Milvus or buy the Contax Zeiss 21mm.
Asked by: Tony Y.
Other than the focal length similarity, both lenses are nearly the same size and weight, with a minimum focus distance of 3' (0.9 m). The depth of field scale and aperture setting can only be read from the front of the Biogon lens. Both lenses render beautifully, while the Biogon lens seems to have higher contrast, and the Contax has somewhat better resolution, and less contrast. The results with either lens are outstanding and mostly matter of personal choice.
