Voigtlander 50mm f/2 APO-Lanthar Aspherical for Sony Mirrorless

On the docket for evaluation over the next week or two is the Voigtlander 50mm f/2 APO-Lanthar Aspherical for Sony mirrorless. Coincidentallly, I also have the new Sigma FE 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Art, and it should be interesting to see how the zoom does at 50mm vs the prime.

The Voigtlander 50/2 APO checks all the boxes for optical performance along with an ideal size/weight for my own type of outdoor shooting. Its design is as close to ideal as I had long hoped Zeiss would produce—but Zeiss went the large/heavy f/1.4 route for both Milvus and Otus lineups, making for expensive and heavy/bulky lenses whic are great to shoot but a chore to carry.

Voigtlander 50m f/2 APO-Lanthar Aspherical
  • Sony E-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2 to f/16
  • Apochromatic Optical Design using 5 partial dispersion elements
  • Two Aspherical Elements
  • Manual Focus Design
  • 12-blade manual diaphragm, stepless or 1/3 stop clicks
  • Contacts Transfer EXIF Data
  • Only 364 grams!

Voigtlander is on a roll with the Voigtlander FE NOKTON 21mm f/1.4 Aspherical, Voigtlander 65mm f/2 Macro APO Lanthar, Voigtlander 110mm f2.5 Macro APO-Lanthar, and now the 50/2 APO.

Is a 28mm or 35mm in the cards? That would be slick.

By luck I received two copies of the 50/2 APO. It’s always a plus to have two samples in case there is sample variation.

I purchased the Voigtlander 65mm f/2 Macro-APO-Lanthar Aspherical last fall, a rarity for me these days, but it is just too good a lens to pass up, and the sample I bought was as perfect a lens as I have encountered. I might end up doing the same for the 50/2 APO, assuming it performs similarly

Recommendations

Manual focus is not for everyone. But if it works for you, you cannot go wrong with the lenses below—and at$899 the Voigtlander 65mm may be the best price/performance you’ll find anywhere—it is one of the very best lenses available for Sony mirrorless.

Manual focus primes not your thing? I was incredibly impressed with the Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG DN Art last fall, and I am hoping the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Art will perform similarly—but beware of sample variation issues with zooms of all brands.
