Eats light and beautifully made

Stephen Kelly, B&H Photo

  • 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. I have been in dimly lit bars, restaurants and clubs and can still take candid shots of friends and the public.I particularly like manually adjusting the aperture and focus.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Amazing

  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

the Nokton is an exceptional lens

Jack, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: A few months ago, I moved from Leica M9 to the Leica M240 I mostly use it with my 35mm Summicron, however, I also love my 50mm Zeiss f2 lens. The 50mm Zeiss is an excellent and reliable lens. It does everything right, however, it is not a "magic" lens. It is rather conventional. I was itching for a special lens. I finally ordered the Voigtlander Nokton f1.1 What a lens! So much character, so special. The Nokton is not a standard lens.
  • Pros: Bokeh, Night photography
  • Cons: Demanding, Fastidious

Excellent performer at a great price

  • Excerpt: It doesn't get any better than this lens at this price point. The lens is a little soft wide open, but that's to be expected and just gets better and better as you stop down. I highly recommend this lens to anyone looking to get an amazing lens that's fast and sharp. I currently use it on my Sony a7.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

4 star lens with a 6 star price.

  • Summary: This lens is not optically perfect. The bokeh is a bit harsh, but it's okay. I wish the aperture adjusted in 1/3 stops but it adjusts in 1/2 stops. Etc, etc, whatever. This lens costs a small fraction of the price of a used Leica Noctilux and costs barely a blip compared to a new Noctilux. The Leica's aren't optically perfect either, but I suppose an argument could be made that the bokeh is notably better.

Great value for solid, very fast lens

  • Excerpt: FWIW, the F/1.1 is two thirds of one f/stop faster than an f/1.4. I knew that when I bought it. That makes a difference to me and it's a real asset on the Leica M9-P I own. Leica doesn't push ISO speeds all that high compared to Canon, Fuji and others. It just produces superb images. So do my Canons and Fujis, but there is a quality which sets Leica apart.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Excellent Value, F11 Lens Speed, High Quality, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy
