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.

I'm trying to mount the lens on the D850, but it gets stuck halfway through the rotation. It is normal?
Asked by: Razvan
Yes, when mounting new lens you will get a bit or tension when mounting the lens and this is normal play for new lens.

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.

Can this lens be used with a Fujifilm GFX 50s II camera. If so what adapter(s) will work + will the image cir. cover the sensor?
Asked by: Jack
IT can fit when using this adapter: https://bhpho.to/2z25OV8. However, does to the larger sensor on the GFX, most lenses under 85mm will be vignetted. Therefore this 63mm Fuji lens would be a better option for the GFX: https://bhpho.to/3otThE1

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.
