Very good portrait lens

  • Excerpt: I was looking for a nice manual portrait lens for my NEX cameras. The classic legacy lenses like nikon 85 1.4 AIS were pricy and old, and their focal length is quite limiting. I decided to go for the Voigt 58 and i am more than happy ! This lens is extremely well built.
  • Pros: Great bokeh, Great Build And Handeling, Nice Smooth Surfaces, Price, Sharp From F28, Wonderful Colors
  • Cons: Not sharp wide open

Solid enjoyment

  • Summary: I use the the Nokton as a short portrait telephoto on my D300S and a versatile standard lens on my D700. Overall IQ is excellent and by f/4-5.6 match or exceed that of more expensive or famous lenses. I enjoy manual focus lenses and the Voigtlanders I have are pleasures to use.

  • Excerpt: Solidly built with buttery smooth focusing, the Voigtlander Nocton serves as a standard lens on my Nikon D700 and a great short portrait tele on my D300S. Bokeh is generally very smooth and while the Nocton vignettes noticeably at f/1.4, larger apertures are fully useable and the lens becomes...

Beautiful Results on Digital

  • Excerpt: I use this lens for portraiture on Nikon D300 SLR, and on 35mm SLR film bodies. Since focusing is done at f1.4, which provides a hazy soft image, this lens is hard to focus on the ground glass alone. So I use the green dot in focus indicator in my Nikon to help me.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

Nice

  • Excerpt: Please note that the images don't represent the lens fully. B&H hasn't updated the images to reflect the metal ring now being used on the new model. The optics are the same, and I like the metal ring better. So a bonus for us. The build quality is awesome, and the focus ring is a joy to use.

Oozes Quality

Morriss, B&H Photo
2 December 2013
  • Excerpt: It feels so good in my hands. I needed something fast that could actually be used wide open for dance photographs. Timing is everything with dance photographs, so auto focus in low light is worthless. I use it on a D700 and the results are fantanstic.
