Voigtlander Nokton 58mm f/1.4 SL II S Lens (Black)
Key Features
  • F-Mount Lens/FX Format
  • Aperture Range: f/1.4 to f/16
  • Classic Double Gauss Optical Design
  • Manual Focus Design
Characterized by its slightly longer-than-normal focal length, the black Nokton 58mm f/1.4 SL II S Lens from Voigtlander is a versatile prime well-suited to portraiture and general shooting applications. The focal length pairs with the bright maximum aperture for extensive control over focus placement to suit working with shallow depth of field or selective focus techniques. The smooth manual focus operation also contributes to controlling focus position, and both depth of field and focus distance scales are featured on the metal lens barrel to aid in pre-focusing or setting hyperfocal distance. This lens' physical design also features a scalloped focus ring to recall classic lens designs of the 1960s as well as afford more secure handling during use. Mixing the classic-inspired design with contemporary usage, the lens also sports an Ai-S type CPU to permit in-camera adjustment of the aperture setting for faster, more intuitive exposure control.

Voigtlander 58mm f/1.4 Nokton SL II-S Overview

Characterized by its slightly longer-than-normal focal length, the black Nokton 58mm f/1.4 SL II S Lens from Voigtlander is a versatile prime well-suited to portraiture and general shooting applications. The focal length pairs with the bright maximum aperture for extensive control over focus placement to suit working with shallow depth of field or selective focus techniques. The smooth manual focus operation also contributes to controlling focus position, and both depth of field and focus distance scales are featured on the metal lens barrel to aid in pre-focusing or setting hyperfocal distance.

Mixing the classic-inspired design with contemporary usage, the lens also sports an Ai-S type CPU to permit in-camera adjustment of the aperture setting for faster, more intuitive exposure control.

Slightly-longer-than-normal prime, this 58mm f/1.4 lens is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with DX models where it will provide an 87mm equivalent focal length.
Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture offers extensive control over depth of field when working with selective focus techniques, and the wide aperture also benefits working in difficult lighting conditions.
Double gauss optical design helps to suppress both chromatic and spherical aberrations for high clarity and sharpness.
Manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 1.5' away with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:5.8.
All-metal lens barrel integrates both focus distance and depth of field scales to aid in using pre-focusing and hyperfocal focusing techniques.
Scalloped focus ring and smooth focusing action affords precise control when handling.
Built-in CPU permits using in-camera controls for adjusting the lens' aperture setting.

question

I have the D800, I do a lot of video give me your thoughts?
Asked by: anthony
The Voigtlander Nokton 58mm f/1.4 SL II S Lens would be a good lens choice for video usage on the Nikon D800 DSLR camera. The lens has smooth focus and has a built-in aperture ring. The aperture ring is not de-clicked, so it would be best to only use one aperture per shot, as adjusting the aperture may results in seeing the small steps in-between each aperture setting instead of a smooth transition. Otherwise, it would be a good standard prime focal length lens for your video recording needs.

I just bought this lens and I tried it with my D500 and D700 on aperture priority mode. I found out that it only works on full aperture of F1.4 otherwise the shutter will not release no matter what adjustments I do. Is this normal?? Whereas I tried my Micro-Nikkor 55mm F2.8, this one works with any aperture I set it on. Am I missing some adjustments?? I need some help and I appreciate it. thanks.
Asked by: RAUL
For these types of older lenses, you have to put the aperture on F/16 then control the aperture through the camera body.

question

The lens I use most right now is a 60mm 2.8D Micro on my D7100. Would this lens be redundant?
Asked by: William
In regards to the lens' angle of view, yes, the two lenses would be similar. The Voigtlander Nokton 58mm f/1.4 SL II S Lens does have a brighter aperture, so it would let more light into the camera, and as most lens' sweet spot is 2-3 stops from wide open, I would assume this lens would be sharpest around f/2.8-4, so it could be used at larger apertures and still retain high image quality, whereas the Nikon 60mm f/2.8G AF-S Micro lens would have its best performance around f/5.6-8. Unfortunately, as the Voigtlander Nokton 58mm f/1.4 SL II S Lens is a new lens, I have not seen the optical performance of the lens to compare image quality, but the similarities of the lenses would mostly be the focal length of the lens. The differences would be the Voigtlander should be better at larger aperture settings, should have a smoother, longer manual focus throw, and has a hyperfocal scale on the lens for landscape photography. The Nikon lens would be able to autofocus and provide autoexposure, and will be able to focus much closer for 1:1 life-size macro close-up photography needs.

question

Does Voigtlander Nokton 58mm f/1.4 SL II S Lens work with Nikon D5500's auto-exposure functions? I am guessing it won't autofocus but is it otherwise compatible?
Asked by: Robert L.
You are correct, manual focus lenses like this will only prevent auto-focus and auto-aperture functions, but auto-exposure is handled by the camera and won't be prevented by the lens.
