    Canon Voigtländer 50 or 65mm f/2 Macro APO-Lanthar likely to come to Canon RF soon?

    Hello! I'd love for Voigtländer to release RF-mount versions of these two lenses: Voigtländer 50mm f/2 Macro APO-Lanthar; Voigtländer 65mm f/2 Macro APO-Lanthar. Question: How likely to you imagine that they'd release at least one of those two in the next 1-3 years? Some relevant elements...

    Nikon And another new Voigtlander lens for Nikon Z users..

    I really do wonder sometimes whether the new lenses like this as well as the 50 F1 are better suited to Nikon Z rather than the rangefinder. https://nikonrumors.com/2024/02/20/new-voigtlander-nokton-75mm-f-1-5-aspherical-lens-for-nikon-z-mount-announced.aspx/amp/

    Fuji Showcase Voigtländer Nokton 50mm f/1.2

    The Voigtländer Nokton 50mm f1.2 arrived two days ago, however due to bad weather I haven't really had the opportunity to take it outside. Just like the other Voigtländer lenses, this one comes with electrical contacts and communicates with most (modern) Fujifilm X cameras, there are some...

    Here's the most telling image from today's little shootout: Voigtländer Nokton D 23mm f/1.2 Aspherical vs. Nikon Z 24mm f/1.7 DX. The Voigtländer: Yes, wider (1mm isn't nothing, especially when it comes to APS-C!), bokeh's obviously smoother in the middle distance ... The Nikon: ... but...

    Fuji Two new Voigtländer lenses for X-Mount

    Cosina has announced two new lenses designed for Fujifilms X-Mount under their Voigtländer brand in order to extent the already existing trio. First there is another 50'ish equiv. lens with the Nokton 35mm f0.9 lens. It is quite a bit bulkier and heavier than the 35mm f1.2 weighting 492gr...

    Nikon Voigtlander Mirrorless Lenses for Z Mount

    As I’ve said before, there’s probably no such thing as a “bad” Voigt lens so I’m sticking this up here for any Z Mount owners here. As someone who only wants smaller lenses for the rangefinder, I’m thinking the Lanthar lenses might be better suited for me on the Z mount. Shame that the, by all...

    I picked this lens up a couple of months ago, have been using it on my Leica M9. Work has been "extremely busy", and taking some breaks while my Daughter is out of school. This lens is fast, relatively compact, sharp, contrasty, and focuses to 0.7m. It uses 52mm filters. About the same size and...

    Leica Showcase Voigtlander APO-Lanthar 50mm F2, M-Mount

    This lens is amazing. You will not need a better-corrected lens than this. Unless you shoot UV. Then you need the lens on the Right. When received, I noted the overall size was about the same as my Pentax 85/4.5 Ultra-Achromatic-Takumar (UAT). The latter is 50 years old, maybe 40 lenses known...

    Leica Showcase Voigtlander 50mm F1.5 M-Mount, v2- October 2020 version

    Nickel and Black finish, 43mm filter thread, compact design- reminded me of a Bertele lens from the 1930s. This lens is compact. It looks to be an Asymmetric design, meaning the front section is probably a loner focal length than the rear. This allows the two sections to be brought close...

    Leica CL with Voigtlander 15mm f4.5 Heliar Ultra Wide Angle

    I was trying the new adapter that came in yesterday and decided to take the CV 15mm f4.5 lens for a walk at night. The images were all too noisy. I'm too inexperienced with the camera and had the settings poorly selected by mistake. These were captured with as high as ISO 25,000... As I said...

    Leica Showcase Cosina Voigtländer 75/2.5 Color-Heliar LTM

    This gem of a lens arrived today. Lightweight, super smooth and clicky and just perfect. My copy frontfocuses slightly -- as do all LTM lenses I've tried out so far. Maybe I should look into getting another LTM-M adapters if there's a better one among them. But that frontfocus doesn't ruin the...

    Leica Showcase Cosina Voigtländer 21/3.5 Color-Skopar

    The brand new, classic-design Color-Skopar is a joy in its small size and weight. The focusing is a bit fidgeting; at the same time tiny deviations don't make a difference. I had enormous fun shooting this thing, assisted by a plastic Leica 21mm viewfinder. I just begun to wade through...

    Leica Showcase Voigtländer 50 f/3.5 Heliar VM

    This nice little lens is so cute and tiny. And the rendering is very good as well -- thanks to its slow maximum aperture, it's very easy to work with. And me being never a fifty guy and a 28/35 mm shooter for a long time, the jump into 50 was suspiciously smooth...
