Voigtlander FE Nokton Classic 35mm f/1.4 Aperture Series: 'Sprinter Van at Sunrise' and 'Sunrise over Panamint Range'

See Sony mirrorless wish list and get Voigtlander Classic 35mm f/1.4 at B&H Photo.

Voigtlander Classic 35mm f/1.4

The about $799 Voigtlander Classic 35mm f/1.4 is a high speed manual focus and manual aperture ring for Sony mirrorless. Adapted from a rangefinder design (AFAIK), it can be expected to have limitations at wider apertures until stopped well down.

I present two examples both of which are impressive in several ways:

Voigtlander Classic 35mm f/1.4 Aperture Series: Sprinter Van at Sunrise

Voigtlander Classic 35mm f/1.4 Aperture Series: Sunrise Over Panamint Range

Includes images up to full resolution from f/1.4 through f/11, along with crops and commentary.

Readers interested in either the Voigtlander Classic 35mm f/1.4 or the Voigtlander Nokton 40mm f/1.2 ASPH would do well to see the two comparisons for each.

It’s a comfy home away from home—I confess that having food, bed, computer all within 6 feet walking distance is life simplicity of great appeal, at least for a week or two. I wish I had gotten one 3 years ago, before I spent big bucks repairing my Porsche Cayenne Turbo. Still, its 4 wheel drive is a pale imitation of what the Cayenne could do.
