Voigtlander 35mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

Compact yet fast, the Nokton Classic 35mm f/1.4 Lens from Voigtlander is a standard wide-angle prime designed for full-frame Sony E mirrorless cameras. Its classic wide focal length pairs with a bright f/1.4 maximum aperture to deliver notable control over depth of field for producing shallow depth of field imagery, and also benefits working in low-light conditions. Helping to achieve the lens's namesake Classic look, a symmetrical optical design is used, along with high refractive index glass, to produce sharp, clear imagery but with some intentional aberrations left to realize a smooth and vintage-esque character. The lens's manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 11.8" away and the mount incorporates electronic contacts to relay Exif data and to make use of in-camera shooting and focus aids.

Standard wide-angle prime is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 52.5mm equivalent focal length.
Bright, fast f/1.4 maximum aperture affords extensive control over depth of field for selective focus techniques, and also benefits working in low-light conditions.
High refractive index glass helps to suppress spherical aberrations for a clean, sharp image quality, however the classic-inspired design intentionally does not correct all aberrations in order to achieve a smooth aesthetic character.
Manual focus design permits smooth, refined control along with a minimum focusing distance of 11.8".
Ten-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth quality of bokeh.
Contacts transfer all Exif data between the camera and lens in order to permit full use of camera functions, including focus magnification, image stabilization, and lens corrections.

    Voigtlander 35mm f/1.4 reviews

    Nokton Classic 35mm f/1.4 Lens for Sony E is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very nice lens with a unique rendering If you're expecting a tack sharp modern lens at f/1.4, this lens is not for you.� However, if you like a more classic rendering, while still getting images that have solid levels of detail, you may very well be interested.� The lens produces images with good (but not outstanding) levels of detail across the majority of the frame at f/1.4, when focusing between infinity and around 0.5-0.6m.� When focused closer, spherical aberration overwhelms the image at wide apertures and needs to be stopped down to around f/2.8 before it really sharpens up at close focus.� However, at distances of environmental portraiture, it's really quite good, with good detail even at f/1.4.� The bokeh is a love it or hate it affair, as it is by no means perfect.� If you like the character, you'll love the look this lens gives.� If you don't like anything but smooth bokeh, move along.� It's a very compact lens with excellent haptics and a perfectly damped focus ring.� In all, I'm quite pleased with the lens, especially considering the price and the compact size.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall decent lens but not great I am very disappointed with the edge sharpness of this lens, the extreme edge never gets sharp even stop down to F8. Also Coma is pretty horrible, so not a lens for Astro, Another reason I purchased a F1.4 lens is for portrait, but this lens offer very nervous Bokeh. On the god side, it has a the typical Zeiss/Voigtlander built quality, focusing ring is very smooth, the lens feels just GREAT in my hands, it offer very good sunstar too.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from It just isn't sharp at all. I love the feel of this lens as far as focus ring.� It feels well built.� It is very very very soft in focus.� I've tried it for landscape, portraits and close up objects.� Nothing is sharp.� I was hoping for so much more.� Returning asap.
