Voigtlander 65mm f/2 Macro APO-Lanthar Aperture Series: Old Mining Structures

This series from f/2 through f/6.3 evaluates the Voigtlander 65mm f/2 Macro APO-Lanthar on an finely detailed subject at medium-far range.

As is the case 95% of the time, Sony A7R IV 4-shot pixel shift was used but failed to deliver acceptable results, with checkerboarding and crosshatching problems. Which is a pity given the detail, but using Enhance Details gets it 70% of the delivers substantial improvement over standard processing.

Voigtlander 65mm f/2 Macro APO-Lanthar Aperture Series: Old Mining Structures near Death Valley

Includes images at up to 60 megapixel camera resolution plus 120 megapixels as upscaled by Gigapixel AI. The 120MP images are impressive, and what strikes me yet again is that they compete favorably with the 100-megapixel Fujifilm GFX100. When depth of field, micro contrast and total sharpness across the field (all of which relate to lens performance) are accounted for, I’m not so sure the GFX100 could beat this, or even match it.

Total performance is as good as one is likely to see. This particular sample of the Voigtlander 65mm f/2 Macro APO-Lanthar continues to impress me as being exemplary in letting the Sony A7R IV show off its potential. Especially since 20 or so other lenses for the most part have obvious shortcomings.
