Voigtlander 58mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

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.

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.

    Voigtlander 58mm f/1.4 reviews

    Nokton 58mm f/1.4 SL II S Lens (Black) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now I'm Spoiled. This Voigtlander 58mm f1.4 lens is fabulous. It is extremely sharp and the bokeh is wonderful. I tested this lens compared to other 50mm lens I own (Nikkor 50mm 1.4 non-Ai, Nikkor 50 mm 2.0 Ai, Nikkor 50mm 1.8D, Fujifilm 35mm f2.0 WR). The Voigtlander was a clear winner. I will use this on my Fujifilm X-E2, X-t1 and Nikon D600.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but not great This lens does look beautiful and super well built. I like the color rendition and bokeh. However, I just have a hard time getting sharp images at 1.4 - 2.0 aperture (hand-held). Maybe its just me, I dunno. And because it has manual focusing, I felt slow when I used it last Sunday at a kids pool party (I ended up using my tamron 85 1.8 with autofocus instead ). I think this is not the right lens for moving subjects, or maybe I just need more practice. One more thing, it looks small on my nikon D750. Do I regret buying this lens? Not at all. There’s just something about this lens that makes me feel good and happy... and thats what matters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful little lens I purchased this lens a few years ago and ended up selling it, which I now regret. If you are comfortable manually focusing fast primes, this little lens is capable of very sharp images and has a pleasing bokeh. At an effective focal length of 87mm on DX, it works well as a portrait lens. My sample was a bit soft wide open, but quite sharp by f/2. Definitely recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Embracing this lens, it belongs in my camera Bokeh is beautiful, this lens absorbs a lot of light, just be mindful of that fact. Other wise it's one of many great lenses I now own. This is definitely in the league of a $1,100. lens to say the least. It has the 9 rounded blades that creatively supply such beautiful bokeh and a great essence for your precious moments. Best choice you could make for a portrait lens. I use it on my Nikon D500. FX or DX it doesn't matter.
    Date published: 2016-12-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This lens will tug at your love for photography Stunning bokeh along with a smooth focusing ring. I would recommend getting the lens hood component also. You really can't be disappointed by this purchase, remember it manual focus, fanstastic lens and metal build quality. No plastic here.
    Date published: 2016-11-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing lens This is a must have lens, because it delivers a beautiful image that completely warms your heart. I received 2 stunning lens within 2 weeks of each other and I'm torn between them both.
    Date published: 2016-11-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 'Build quality to die for, coma to die from.' I've had the lens only a short time, fewer than 100 images. Like this lens in low/medium contrast situations. Not so much when there are specular highlights. Others may enjoy the 'aura' from smeared highlights. Really comes into its own indoors, and outdoors under clouds or after sundown. Manual focus a joy with this lens. Optical quality: 3.5/5 Build quality: 5/5 Value: 4/5 Glad I bought it? Yes. ps - could have been an issue but luckily wasn't: packaging from B&H, grade D.
    Date published: 2017-11-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Optics This is a lens with excellent optics and works equally on a DX and FX body for portrait shots. It is a manual focus lens, but an absolute joy to focus to get crisp sharp image.
