Voigtlander BA295E Overview

The Canon EF-mount Voigtlander Color-Skopar 20mm f/3.5 SL II N Aspherical Lens is an ultra-compact, sturdy manual focus lens featuring traditional high-quality Japanese construction and classic styling. The Color-Skopar is a perfect choice as a wide-angle lens for those wanting high performance in a prime all-manual lens. This lens is part of the SL II series, which feature a CPU (Central Processing Unit) built into the lens to support all of your camera's metering functions as well as control the aperture setting via the camera's command dial.

The manual focusing movement, aided by the knurled metal focusing ring, of the Color-Skopar is satisfying to operate and worlds apart in action from doing the same with autofocus lenses. This lens offers an f/3.5 maximum aperture, but unlike most zoom lenses, it will perform nearly as brilliantly at f/3.5 as it will at friendlier apertures of f/5.6-11.0. The focusing helicoid can extend far from the body on the Color-Skopar to allow a minimum focusing distance of just 7.9".

Sturdy metal outer barrel
Compact dimensions; barely more than 1" long
An ideal performer at larger apertures

question

Can the aperture (f-stops) be set on the lens itself directly? Or only in camera?

question

Does this lens have a manual aperture ring, or is it only electronically controlled via the camera? Looking to use for a wide angle to use adapted on a NEX camera. Thanks!

Yes, the Voigtlander Color-Skopar 20mm f/3.5 SL II N Aspherical Lens for Canon EF has a manual aperture ring. You will need an adapter to use this lens on a Sony NEX camera, such as the Novoflex Adapter for EF to Sony E Mount: http://bhpho.to/1i9cgbs

question

I'm new to digital...I am a black/white film person, but recently got a 50D Canon. Can this lens be used on this camera/APS-C ? Also, it says it's 20mm but when used on the 50D, what does that millimeter translate to? Would that be closer to 30mm? Thank your for your help
Asked by: Anonymous
The Voigtlander Color Skopar 20mm f/3.5 SL-II for Canon EOS is compatible with the Canon 50D. On an APS-C size sensor camera, such as the 50D, the lens would have roughly the same angle of view as a 32mm lens shot on a full frame (or 35mm film) camera.
