Shootout: Voigtlander FE 35/2 APO-Lanthar vs Sony FE 35/1.4 GM: Pine Creek Cliffs

This comparison pits the Cosina Voigtlander FE 35mm f/2 APO-Lanthar Aspherical (CV 35/2) against the Sony FE 35mm f/1.4 GM. The distance scene puts a premium on across-the frame sharpness, and strict control of field curvature and focus shift.

Shootout: Voigtlander FE 35/2 APO-Lanthar vs Sony FE 35/1.4 GM: Pine Creek Cliffs

Includes images up to full camera resolution from f/1.4 to f/8, plus crops.

This comparison was one of the most challenging I’ve done, including considerable analsysis. Whew! I think it will be quite useful to readers looking to make choice of 35mm lens. It is also perhaps one of the most instructive comparison I’ve done, in terms of just how challenging it is to compare lenses without erroneous conclusions.

Some surprises are seen! Findings here will be of keen interest to the landscape photographer, including implications for astrophotography and wider aperture exposures. Because the 'story' gets interesting depending on which aperture is used, focus shift, and possible lens skew.
