Main—20/3.5 Color Skopar ASPH

Update mid-2012: the 20/3.5 Color Skopar shows very poor results on the Nikon D800 and can no longer be recommended.

New in April 2009, the ultra wide angle Cosina Voigtlander Color Skopar 20/3.5 SL ASPH is almost identical in size to its sibling 40/2 Ultron, though its LH-20 lens shade makes the lens slightly larger at the business end.

It offers a 94° angle of view on a full frame camera, and is extremely compact, excellent for those on the go, like hikers and/or backpackers. With the Voigtlander 20/3.5, 40/2, and 58/1.4, a very compact and flexible shooting kit is at hand for a wide range of applications from outdoors to portraiture.

Diglloyd DAP is DSLR-oriented, but also contains workflow and other topics. Much of the focus is on Canon and Nikon but also Pentax and Pentax medium format.

Special emphasis is placed on lens evaluation, focusing on Canon and Nikon and Sigma lenses, but with a few others like Rokinon/Samyang.

  • Make better images by learning how to get the best results right away.
  • Save money by choosing the right lens for your needs the first time, particularly some of the new Sigma Art lenses vs Nikon and Canon.
  • Workflow discusses image organization, raw conversion and post processing. Many examples show processing parameters for direct insight into how the image was converted.
  • Jaw-dropping image quality found nowhere else utilizing Retina-grade images up to full camera resolution, plus large crops [past 2 years or so].
  • Real world examples with insights found nowhere else. Make sharper images just by understanding lens behavior you won’t read about elsewhere.
  • Aperture series from wide open through stopped down, showing the full range of lens performance and bokeh.
  • Optical quality analysis of field curvature, focus shift, sharpness, flare, distortion, and performance in the field.
