Great

John Paul C. Gamana, Amazon

  • Summary: It's not the best but it's better than others. Leica lenses would always be better but for people who are looking for lenses that are cheaper and have good quality then this will be the next choice.

Not sharp

carton "carton", Amazon
25 October 2013
  • Summary: Even stopped down to f/2, this lens is significantly less sharp near the edges of an APS-C sensor than the cheap Canon EF-M 22mm f/2. It's ok near the center, but come on, really? I am frustrated by all the reviews trying to make it sound like fine wine and feel like a sucker for buying it.

Buy this one, you will save thousands and get similar IQ as Leica.

  • Summary: At first, I was in doubt. I did not want to put a non-Leica lens on my Leica. However, I did it and voila!! What a pleasant surprise. This little gem is a wonderful lens that provide super sharp images wide open and suprdangerously sharp if stopped down. I always use it wide open. I recommend.

Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f/1.4 on Sony E Mount

David Siegfried, Amazon
1 August 2013
  • Summary: This is a Leica M Mount lens and I don't have a genuine Leica 35mm lens to compare it to, only a 50mm Summicron. The Leica equivalent, the 35mm f/1.4 ASPH Summilux-M, costs ten times what I paid for this lens on the used market. I'm not shooting this on a Leica camera either, but rather on two of Sony's best E-mount cameras, the Sony NEX-7 and the Sony VG900, which is a full frame camcorder but also shoots 24mp still images.

Super sharp and fast lens with that classic Leica look.

  • Summary: If you are looking for a fast wide lens and high quality, purchase this lens. It costs a fraction of a Leica lens and the results are astonishing. At f1.4 you get razor sharp images even at night. I am using this lens for street photography, but bc of the 35mm it could be used as a landscape lans as well. I recommend the SC since the look of the pictures is very similar to Leica with that classic look. Personally I am using this lens on my Leica M8 and M6.

Usage of the Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f/1.4 Wide Angle Leica M Mount Lens is easy and very sharp

ARNOLD B DEXTER, Amazon
13 February 2013
  • Summary: The Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f/1.4 Wide Angle Leica M Mount Lens works great with the M Leica. Focusing and aperture adjustments are smooth. I find the lens to be very sharp and very good in low light situations. In short I would recommend this lens to a friend.

Four stars for bargain price

Arize, Amazon

  • Summary: I shoot a Nex-5N. The more I use the Nokton, the less I like it (although I still see it as a decent lens). I think with this lens you get what you pay for. It's image quality is noticeably inferior to my Zeiss lenses (35mm f/2 Biogon, 21mm f/2.8 Biogon, 50mm f/1.5 Sonnar) . My biggest gripe with the lens in the quality of the bokeh; it's downright ugly and distracting.

Excellent lens

M. Nguyen, Amazon
24 July 2011
  • Summary: I use this lens on my NEX-5. It's a wonderfully small combination. Mechanical construction is really good. Everything operates very smoothly. As other reviewers have said, this lens is not razor sharp wide open but ask yourself the question: does any other lens give you f1.4 with good performance in this small size at this price point?

a good tiny lense

jbalcaen, Ebay
5 April 2011
  • Summary: It's my first Leica M lens, and it's a tiny and really sturdy piece of optic, mostly in metal. It is soft, and a little bit weird on punctual intense spot, wide open but it allow me to shoot in darkness (f1.4) and become quite sharp from f2.8 even though it lacks a little bit of contrast. It is an all manual lens but it is built this way so it is easy to use with a little training.

Amazing bokeh, focal length, colours, and sharpness

Manny V, Amazon
12 February 2011
  • Summary: I use this with an m-to-e-mount adapter mounted on my NEX-5. I do not have experience with original Leica lens. So I do not know how it compares with Leica. My review is based on my experience with other Sony and Canon glass. Pros: - 35mm is ideal focal length for me when mounted on my NEX5.
