ZEISS Biogon T* 35mm f/2 ZM Overview

Positioned as an all-around versatile lens for general shooting applications, the black Biogon T* 35mm f/2 ZM from ZEISS is a flexible wide-angle prime for M-mount rangefinder cameras. Using a Biogon optical concept, along with one anomalous partial dispersion element, distortion is virtually eliminated and chromatic aberrations and color fringing are well-controlled for a clean, realistic image quality. A T* anti-reflective coating has also been applied to minimize lens flare and ghosting, and, additionally, the lens's manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 2.3' away.

Biogon optical concept benefits the wide-angle focal length by helping to virtually eliminate distortion for clean, realistic rendering.
One anomalous partial dispersion element reduces chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved color accuracy and clarity.
Zeiss T* anti-reflective coatings have been applied to each lens surface to help minimize reflections in order to provide greater image clarity, contrast, and color fidelity.
Manual focus design enables a minimum focusing distance of 2.3'.

question

Would this lens be compatible with a Fuji X E2, I understand that it would be a manual focus...that's ok. What other constraints might there be?
Asked by: Anonymous
Using the correct adapter, the Fuji X-mount system works very well with Leica M lenses. You would retain the same constant aperture and infinity focus capability when using something like this:Metabones Leica M Mount Lens to Fujifilm X-Mount Camera Lens Mount Adapter (Black Matte)B&H # MELMXBM1 ? Mfr # MB_LM-X-BM1However, automatic diaphragm (AE metering), or other auto functions are not retained using this adapter. This second option will allow for aperture priority automatic exposure:Novoflex Adapter for Leica M Mount Lenses to Fujifilm X Mount Digital CamerasB&H # NOFUXLEM ? Mfr # FUX/LEM
