Voigtlander Ultron 40mm f/2 SL II

Main—40/2 Ultron SL II

The Voigtlander 40mm f/2 Ultron SL II n “pancake lens” (about $449 for Nikon or Canon) is the smallest lens available for Nikon cameras today, though it’s solid metal construction means that it weighs in at a surprisingly heavy 200 grams. It ships with a dome-shaped lens hood and a close-up lens that allows 1:4 magnification. For those that want to travel light and compact, it’s a terrific choice with some stopping down. An alternative is the (discontinued) Nikon 45mm f/2.8P.
