Voigtlander 110mm f/2.5 Macro APO-Lanthar Overview

By B&H Photo's

Featuring an apochromatic design, the MACRO APO-LANTHAR 110mm f/2.5 Lens from Voigtlander can produce detailed images with little to no aberration, even with the high resolutions of modern digital sensors. The lens is designed to work with full-frame Sony E-mount cameras and allows users to get close to subjects with a 13.7" minimum focus distance and a 1:1 magnification ratio. Additionally, a fast f/2.5 aperture means the lens can create an incredibly shallow depth of field as well as function well in low-light conditions.

The metal construction is designed to last and features manual focus and aperture control for precise operation during a shoot. A 10-blade diaphragm is also present for silky smooth bokeh and the electronic contacts on the rear of the lens transmit Exif data to the body as well as enable in-body image stabilization. Also included is a hood to block stray light from entering the lens.

  • Designed for full-frame E-mount cameras with a 110mm focal length
  • Apochromatic design practically eliminates longitudinal chromatic aberrations
  • Manual focus allows for smooth control
  • Manual aperture ring uses 1/3-stop clicks for tactile control over exposure
  • Ten-blade diaphragm helps make bokeh incredibly smooth
  • Included lens hood guards the front lens element and helps control flare and ghosting
  • Electronic contacts transfer all Exif data between camera and lens to permit full use of camera functions like focus magnification, image stabilization, and lens profile corrections

Voigtlander 110mm f/2.5 Macro APO-Lanthar Reviews

Once Mastered this Lens is Simply Amazing!

By Albert

I own and regularly use Zeiss manual/prime lenses and so for those who say this is a heavy lens, when compared to my Milvus 135mm, this lens is a joy to carry. Comparing the IQ of the VC 110mm to the 135mm this is sharper, has greater micro-contrast and imparts a better 3-D rendering. For those not accustomed to MF lenses there is a learning curve and in time you will either become more deliberate to your approach or you will give up and blame the lens. I use this lens primarily for landscape or isolating certain subjects across a greater background and coupled with Focus Peaking on my a7riii, the VC 110mm delivers!

Excellent lens

The lens is magic sharp and soft with Sony A7R4. It is best one which I have. I love it so much!

Spectacular quality; bulky

Very impressed with the color, resolution and bokeh. A7R II image stabilization and auto magnification during focus make it very easy to shoot, even handheld. Had previously been shooting zeiss manual lenses and was looking for something with even better quality and also a shorter minimum focal distance for macro. This lens delivers both. If you're considering this lens you probably have already read some of the excellent reviews online that outline the positives and negative to consider. Negatives include weight and size (feels a bit front heavy when fully extended), the focus throw (cranking back and forth between focal distances can be an effort) and the effort to attach and remove the threaded hood. I had considered these before purchasing and still more than happy with the decision after using it for a few months. Saving for the 50 mm APO next!

The all manual held me back from buying this lens for awhile. It took me a bit of time to adjust; I did adjust and the results blow me away.

Best lens I have

it's been a year since I bought this extraordinary lens for my Sony a7riii, and even though I have many other lenses (24mm GM, Zeiss 50mm 1,4, 65 mm 2.0 apo lanthar, etc) the 110 it’s the one I use most. It’s extremely sharp. Constructed like a tank, but it’s a silk when you use it. Macro work is just fantastic. The color rendering is unique. Somehow soft or dreamy like. Not as punch as the GM lenses, but beautiful in any way. I use it for landscape and portrait photography too. Really love this lens. It’s my favorite. If I didn't have it, I would buy it again.

Incredible

This is my new favorite lens. I can't take it off. It's amazing as a standard 110mm or as a macro. If you can deal with manual focus, and it's really the only way to go for macro, you won't regret this lens. Sharp as can be, no fringing, great colors, just a fantastic lens. Now I want to pick up their 50mm and 35mm Apo-Lanthar.

A New Standard

Resolution, micro-contrast and amazing color - that's what this lens delivers. I find the bokeh to be very nice as well. My Batis 135 f/2.8 APO seems equally strong although the rendering is a little different. This lens is heavy due to its ability to achieve a 1:1 macro ratio and maximum f-stop of 2.5. Focus is very smooth and precise, and support for Sony's EVF magnification automatically makes it a lot easier. It is easy to accidentally move the focus before shooting - I hold onto the lens shade instead of the barrel. Note that due to the outstanding level of detail possible, you will need to get the focus right. When depth of field is necessary, use smaller f-stops than you might normally choose.
