Blending a compact form factor with versatile performance, the Nokton Classic 35mm f/1.4 II MC from Voigtlander is a fast wide-angle prime designed for M-mount rangefinder cameras. This updated, version II of the lens features a symmetrical optical design with one abnormal partial dispersion element, which retains the distinct character and high color accuracy rendering of the original, but also reduces curvature of field and astigmatism for improved focusing accuracy and more even sharpness across the entire image plane. This lens also features a multi-coating to suppress lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions. Its manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 2.3' away and a 10-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality to suit working with shallow depth of field.

Voigtlander Nokton Classic 35mm f/1.4 II MC Reviews
Great lens. Great price.
Purchased for use with my new (to me, anyway) M 10. Wonderful results. Check out any of the many YouTube reviews (especially MrLeica).
Good lens for the price
This lens, in particular, addresses some of the concerns from the original 35/1.4 from CV - namely the issue with focus shift and severe vignetting and edge softness wide open (which is, arguably, a strength from some perspectives).
Excellent lens for the price
There is not vignette even wide open
Great lens. Sticky focus ring
The lens are sharp but the focus ring isn't the smoothest.
Works extremely well. Feels solid. Using it to practice manual focusing since I cannot easily switch to auto focus when frustrated. I use it on a Leica CL. The combo is a nice balance.
EXC size , resolution VG , 39mm filter size, my fave for M1O
The lens has a nice image quality. Very good reesolution, I like the contrast curve this lens produces. But the size and smooth focus is the sweet spot @39mm filter size. This image is copyrighted ALL RIGHTS RESERVED 2021_F.BLUM
Great pictures but poor build
I purchased this for my Leica CL on Dec 30, 2021. This was for my street photography hobby, not my production camera. I would use it roughly 2 times per month or for a picture around the house. Picture quality: Loved it. Nothing bad to say about the picture quality at all. Build quality: the lens feels well built. on January 27th 2023 I went to adjust the aperture and the ring was loose. The aperture ring fell off the tracks. It still worked with a little TLC while adjusting but the lens was never dropped or put in any luggage that could have banged it. After reading up on it, it turns out its pretty common. I purchased this in-store in NY on the recommendation of the employee in the camera department. (Purchased it with my Leica). He toted the build quality and was knowledgeable but unfortunately wasn't the case in this situation.
really a good choice for the price
I've been wanting to buy this lens for a long time. So quite compact that I was even scared when I took it out of the box. Great for walking photographs. I haven't taken many photos yet but in all of them, I noticed that it appears a small vignette on the edges of the photo. That might be a little annoying, this is the reason my 4 stars rating.
