Wonderful lens!

  • Excerpt: Great little lens! Images are sharp, even at f 1.4. Bokeh is magical. Yes, it is manual, but the aperture can be contolled from the camera, and the focus ring is smooth and has a long "throw". Plus, I really like the slightly longer focal length of 58mm vs. 50mm.

  • Excerpt: I have a special relationship with the Voigtländer brand. Growing up in Germany, my father had a Voigtländer camera (I wish I still had it!), which he used to explain the basics of photography to me.

Dreamy Bokeh, Sharper than People Say

J.R., B&H Photo
29 December 2015
  • Excerpt: This lens, like all the Voigts, is just wonderful to hold and use. Bokeh is superb, skin tones are super smooth, and it's sharp enough to satisfy the pixel-peepers, even at 1.4. Anyone that says it's soft and "dream-like" at 1.4 is simply missing focus.

Best prime I've owned

  • Summary: This is the definition of an art lens. A true one. Depth rendition, color, and corner to corner sharpness are all exquisite. The build quality is amazing, focus ring is solid metal (in updated versions, previously it was rubber) and buttery to the touch, amazing precision.

  • Excerpt: While I've only had the lens for about 2 weeks, it pairs very well with my Nikon Df. So far, there's nothing I dislike about it.

Very Solid Build and Quality

Brentthephotog, B&H Photo
3 November 2015
  • Excerpt: So far, a very solid, clean piece of glass that far outshines my 50 1.4 D nikkor. A bit more expensive than the D, but more than twice as clear, and sharp. Only a manual focuser, but i've actually started using manual focus in portraiture at all focal lengths, and moving away from zooms and auto...

  • Excerpt: This lens is amazing, the focus ring is like butter. The depth rendition is amazing, colors are amazing, a little bit dreamy wide open if shot in sun light,and is very sharp stopped down.
