Better than Expected

  • Excerpt: This is an excellent travel lens. It is extremely compact and very well built. Everything is metal, no plastic to be found. You could clobber someone on the head with it if they tried to rob you and the lens would be just fine.
  • Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Rugged

an amazing lens.

  • Excerpt: Based on some reviews I half expected to return this lens. I have a demanding 36mp sensor in my Sony A7R and it can be fussy about lens choices. First off let me state I take pictures not lens tests.

Small Quality

  • Excerpt: I had previously had a Pentax system with some of their limited prime lenses. But I wanted to get back to full frame 35mm. I got a Canon 6D at the same time as getting this Voigtlander, a year ago. I get the advantage of a full-frame slr with a small lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Lightweight, Strong Construction, Tiny
  • Cons: Less Flexible Than A Zoom, Manual Focus

Perfect lens if you've done your HW and it's the lens you want

  • Summary: A really excellent lens, for what it is. It's not fast aperture, it's not AF, and it's not razor sharp in the corners wide open. At this focal length, I don't care much about those - I have other lenses that give me a large aperture and I just don't care all that much about corners.

Fantastic!

  • Excerpt: The sharpness and color this lens delivers are superb, especially considering how small of a package it is. For landscape and even architecture, it delivers incredible images right out of the camera. Distortion is there, of course, but it's minimal and easily corrected.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: This was my 5th lens, and last maybe, of my kit. My camera is the 6D. I love wide angle but I'm not sure I really need wider than this.I shoot this lens almost always at around f/8. I most often focus with my my eyes, brain, and the camera numbers (not looking through the viewfinder).
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fun, HIgh image quality, Lightweight, Low distortion, Rugged, Strong Construction

Fantastic, this lens is truly excellent

  • Summary: I purchased this Voigtlander lens specifically to use on a Glidecam HD1000 with a Canon 6d. It is perfect for this application, but more than that, it has almost instantly become my favorite lens.

Embrace the limits. You'll grow.

  • Excerpt: I love this lens so much. You won't find a wider angle in a smaller or tougher package. On a crop-sensor camera it turns into a perfect street lens with an equivalent focal length of 32mm.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light
