LENS: D800 + Voigtlander 90mm F/3.5 SL II APO-Lanthar

The reader is strongly advised to read the lens evaluation notes.

The Voigtlander 90mm F/3.5 SL II APO-Lanthar is a manual focus but fully electronic (“chipped”) lens, so it acts just like any Nikon-made lens, supporting 1/3 stop apertures and auto aperture control.

The 90/3.5 has an aperture ring, and thus can also be used on Canon EOS with a mechanical lens adapter. It is small and light and very compact. Build quality is similar to Zeiss lenses.

Quick summary

The 90/3.5 offers an outstanding performance corner to corner that appears superior to many if not most Nikon lenses, something easily seen by examining the other lens comparisons. The apochromatic correction most likely makes a contribution in this regard.
