Will my EXIF data be correct with Zeiss 35mm f2.0 lens on Leica CL?
Asked by: James
The Leica M-Adapter L (Silver) does have a 6-Bit Coding Sensor, but this will only work with encoded lenses. The ZEISS Biogon T* 35mm f/2 ZM Lens does not have 6-Bit Coding. When using these on the Leica CL Mirrorless Camera, no lens data will be transmitted from the lens.
