Opinion:I come from years of Canon with 35L and 50 1.2 deputies to magic in comparable focal points, I have gone from 50 art and other fine manuals. This wipes out everyone. Superb sharpness at 1.2 in the center, yielded on all the excellent diaphragm from 2.8 onwards. Basically you have a lens that at 1.2 or 1.4 has the MAGY button but not clouded like some of its peers (nokton 1.1, canon 1.2 , nocti 1.1), but ringing. Soft fire passages with a modern rendering on colors and sharpness with small defects released specifically to inactive the tired user of perfectne lenses such as the various ART or OTUS. There is and is notable the phenomenon of the annihilation of the central blur at 1.2 and also 1.4. means that although they are 40mm, at 1.2 if there is a wall or a detail behind the subject even at half a meter, in the end the wall seems farther away. I could choose between version E or mount Vm... I chose the Leica version, probably a lower thread of the E which suffers from great variability between the specimens and is considerably larger and heavier. The use with the pro techart with latest firmware on sony a7r3. Perfect AF in afc.... with eye af... I'm not going to be able to do that. here are some samples: https://www.juzaphoto.com/topic2.php?l=it&t=3196774 https://www.juzaphoto.com/topic2.php?l=it&t=3186467 I'm honest, if you don't want to get so sick that you can't go back with huge glass and flat... don't look! Ps.. The 40mm is the ideal trade off between 35 and 50. you do everything and really, probably with this glass you could only use a lens 90% of the time.
Pros:Lofty lens, black and white will make you cry, absent AC pushy, sharpness to f 1.2 satisfactory
Cons:Leica-M best attack version even if erroneously they are declared equal
Opinion:I purchased the Leica-M version, and use it on Sony via TechArt Pro. What about, the lens is magical. On the other hand it is a Zeiss with the inscription Voigtlander, what is expected? The construction is equal to a Leica ASPH, so you make the considerations. Very comfortable the aperture ring on the front, so as to greatly facilitate the modification. A habit that I hope also take other manufacturers of manual lenses. At the level of size is very small, just taken in hand and made the first shots, I was pretty much devastated. Voigtlander's net is affirmed as market leader. Ok, Sigma produces super-sharp lenses with cremosissimi bokeh, but the weight? Voigtlander sacrifices a bit of sharpness, in exchange for an incredible weight and transportability. The only "defect" is the lack of AF, which is widely filled thanks to various adapters, which will soon come out for each ecosystem, able to make it AF exploiting the phase sensing system of mirrorless. On the other hand, the TechArt Pro may well also land on the R and Z systems, giving new shine to the lenses of this brand, little known in an unfair way.
Pros:Super bright, characteristic bokeh, excellent definition even at 1.2, electronic chips that transmit the shooting data, exemplary construction, precision of the ferrules, size and weight content, focal all-rounder.
Opinion:A truly remarkable lens. The yield is very characteristic, in the style of Voigtlander but correct in the most classic optical defects. You immediately notice that it is a lens optimized for Sony. The use is very pleasant and not complicated, the focus manual is not at all a problem with the magnification in the viewfinder. Attached to the Sony is a hoot, it is as big as a 50 approximately 1.8 and carries around almost without realizing it. I can not take it off anymore !!! :)
