Love this Lens

  • Excerpt: Buy this lens if you want photos to look "film" like. This lens has character. It is difficult to explain but this character really shows when you process your images to look like film. Part of this is the Bokeh.

  • Excerpt: The lens is beautifully crafted and is very sharp even at f/1.4. If manual focusing if your thing and you love old school craftsmanship, get this lens.

Voigtlander Nokton 40mm f/1.4

  • Summary: I am a photography enthusiast who purchased my first 40mm lens in the Voigtlander Nokton 40mm f/1.4. I got the single coat version to shoot B & W mostly on my Leica M9; the multicoated version apparently is better for color photography.

Silk hat on a pig

Spazzamento, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I have owned literally thousands of lenses in my photographic lifetime, and no single optic has broken my heart more than this one. I call it a silk hat on a pig because the image quality is absolutely stunning in every way possible.

Classic 50's and 60's old style lens

Sunshine, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I use this lens with my Olympus Pen E-P1. It is 80mm middle telephoto in micro 4/3. It seemed like refine of Leica Summilux F1.4 in current technology . It is a beautiful compact lens. I think this is one of the best prime combination with micro 4/3 camera.

A Keeper!

  • Summary: It's a magnificent lens, great build all metall. The focusring moves very firm and smoothly, the aperture ring have very solid clicks. The images from this Nokton, have an interesting creamy artistic feel. Thats what the classic SC stands for, no ASPH lenses.
