This is my favorite lens, but...

sgrundler, B&H Photo
2 August 2015
  • Excerpt: Currently this is my favorite lens to shoot with on my Sony A7S using my VM-E close focus adaptor. The IQ is great, the DoF is magical, and it focuses close to get great close ups with the Voigtlander adaptor. I love shooting with this lens as a still photo lens, however I primarily shoot video.
  • Pros: Fast, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Low build quality, Weak Casing

90% of the Noctilux f/1 for 1/5 the price

J. Miles, Amazon
21 June 2015
  • Summary: You will read a lot of mixed reviews on this lens online but I can tell you with no agenda this lens is a bargain for what you get. Sometimes lenses take on mythical proportions such as the Noctilux f/1 but very few actually get to shoot with one.

Such a controversial lens...

Mr. G, B&H Photo
20 May 2015
  • Excerpt: Let me start out by saying that this lens must be compared to copies of itself. It falls in a category of it's own; such a controversial lens in reviews, yet such a bargain for the price.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

The best 50mm you can buy under $

Federico, B&H Photo
9 February 2015
  • Excerpt: Yes I would buy it again, matter of fact I have bought again. This is the second one I've owned. I used to have it when I shot with a konica Hexar RF. I have missed it so much. At f1.1 the bokeh is so beaitiful the background just melts away while the center stays nice and sharp.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Sharp
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Summary: I have many Canon lenses and cameras to match. I've begun using Sony A7R and A7S cameras for the novelty of using my Canon lenses with adapters on the Sonys. I liked the results but I found it far easier to use the manual focus mode rather than the slow-working autofocus feature.

How much sharper should it be?

Advaitin, B&H Photo
2 January 2015
  • Excerpt: Purchased used here at B&H. I had seen an earlier reviewer say it got sharper as you closed down. Considering my photo sample, I don't see how you could ask it to be sharper full open. I intend to use this in lower light situations, theaters, clubs, or other peformances.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh

Eats light and beautifully made

  • Excerpt: I bought the f/1.1 lens as an addition to the Sony a7 28-70mm, f/3.5-5.6 kit lens.The workmanship is quality. There is a lot of glass on this lens that enables very low light photography.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
