My Leica M3 embraces Voigtlander Nokton 35mm Wide Angle lens

  • Summary: Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f/1.4 lens I purchased for my 1958 Leica M3 was a trophy for me. It helped me photograph exactly what I wanted on the recent Trans Canada Train trip I took with my usual tools of trade, the Nikon digital (D90) and the Leica.

  • Summary: This lens handles very well and feels like one solid chuck of steel on the front of your camera. It is VERY sharp but not terribly so even in the center at f/1.4. Super sharp, but not macro lens or leica sharp. For the price, it simply can't be beat! (except by maybe the 40mm version)
