Voigtlander Nokton 23mm f/1.2 Aspherical Overview

By B&H Photo's

The Voigtlander 23mm f/1.2 Aspherical is a compact 35mm-equivalent lens for FUJIFILM X-mount cameras. With its bright f/1.2 maximum aperture that suits working in a wide range of lighting conditions, this all-metal, manual focus lens delivers outstanding optical performance and precise focusing action while keeping size and weight to a minimum. To achieve this, Voigtlander make use of two low-dispersion glass elements and one aspherical element, as well as a metal helicoid unit that has undergone specific quality control processes.

Despite its mechanical design the lens fully supports communication with digital camera bodies and will be compatible with a number of features that rely on this interface. A rounded 12-blade diaphragm ensures the bokeh remains pleasingly circular at all apertures and is controlled by a built-in aperture ring.

Voigtlander Nokton 23mm f/1.2 Aspherical Reviews

My new favorite lens

By Robert

I am very impressed with this lens. I am currently using it on a Fujifilm X-Pro3 and it's perfect. This is the first time in years that I've used a manual focus lens, but focus peaking makes it a piece of cake. I think the lens is plenty sharp enough, and I love the rendering. The build quality is excellent. As soon as the 35mm is back in stock, I'm ordering that one, too.

Exceptionally well built

I bought this lens for street photography, assuming that zone focusing would be a snap. It is not. There is definitely a learning curve. Now that I own it, I find myself using it for other applications, mostly wide open. Focus peaking works flawlessly. It is not a clinically sharp lens like the new Fuji 23mm WR. But it has a lot of character and produces a dreamier image.

Good quality lens...

I'm really enjoying my new Voigtlander Nokton 23mm F1.2 lens! Manual focus using focus peaking is working well with my Fujifilm X-T4. There is some chromatic aberration when wide open...but nothing that can't be correctly easily in post processing. I would definitely recommend this lens and will likely buy the 35mm Nokton in the future.
