Re: Zeiss not suitable for M8/M9 without adjustment

While I have no doubts that some people experience focussing issues under certain conditions (lenses faster than f/2 and longer than 35mm, wide open, close focused) with certain combinations of lenses and cameras, I find it hard to believe that one can assess a general incompatibility of modern ZM lenses with modern M bodies.

If you look for a certain kind of problem, chances are you'll find it. I never had any issues with my CV or ZM lenses (except for those with inherent focus shift) on my M8. I don't think this is something that should keep you from buying a certain lens.
