Hello dear readers of the LENSPIRE. I would like to share with you some thoughts about ZEISS Distagon T* 1.4/35 ZM. I got this lens last spring, as soon as I was able to buy one from the dealer in the Russia.
Why Distagon T* 1.4/35 ZM?
I like to walk with my camera, trying to find something beautiful around. I like manual rangefinder lenses from ZEISS because of its size and quality. I like street photography, so the fast 35mm is a must have for me. Usually I turn off my phone, turn on music and just go where my legs carry me. Here is my first picture with Distagon T* 1.4/35 ZM.
Street shooting is very interesting process – you never know – will you get something good or not. I do not expect great results – if I have one nice picture after whole day of shooting – I am happy – if I have nothing but tired back and legs – I am fine also.
Usually I shoot pictures in Moscow.
I am looking for nice light, composition. Most of my pictures are black and white, but the colors from Distagon T* 1.4/35 ZM are also looking great.
Distagon T* 1.4/35 ZM is small – I can shoot close to others and do not disturb them.
Distagon T* 1.4/35 ZM is fast and it has nice bokeh – I can use it for street portraits.
But the main reason for me to shoot wide open is lack of light.
I prefer to use f/8 and zone focusing with good light.
I do not shoot landscapes often – but if I see great view – I can use Distagon T* 1.4/35 ZM to capture it.
If you like still photography – no problem – just shoot it.
As you can see – you can do many different things with this lens – low light, street, portraits, landscapes, still life and so on. I’d like to finish this article with my favorite street photography.
