Voigtlander 35mm f/1.5 Nokton Review

Voigtlander 35mm f/1.5 Nokton Review
Pre-order the Voigtlander 35mm f/1.5 Nokton lens: ($899)

CameraQuest | B&H Photo

________________


About the Voigtlander 35mm f/1.5 Nokton lens:

The new Voigtlander 35mm f/1.5 Nokton is a very compact addition to Voigtlander's Vintage line. Although it features a "vintage" exterior style, it's equipped with a modern optical formula reminiscent of the Voigtlander 35/1.2 III Nokton design, featuring 9 elements in 6 groups with 4 aspherical surfaces. It is available in both Type I aluminum (192g) or Type II brass (284g), features a small φ39mm filter diameter and focus down to 0.5m. I will be reviewing the Type I version in "matte" black paint, which is gorgeous and the matches the finish of my Leica M10-R Black Chrome.

When picking up the lens for the first time, I was shocked by how light it was. It weighs a mere 192 grams, making it a perfect companion for travel, hikes and landscapes. On the Leica M10-R, the lens balances well and does not block the 35mm frameline. It sports 12 aperture blades for well defined 12-point sunstars.

The Voigtlander 35mm f/1.5 Nokton is very well built. The focus ring runs smoothly and the aperture ring has defined 1/2 stop clicks. The focus throw angle is not very long at ~100 degrees allowing precision and fast focusing. Although the haptics and appearance are reminiscent of the old days, the lens output is unmistakably modern, well-corrected, promising great performance.
