Pros: Construction, color rendering, sharpness, focus

Cons: slight distortion

Opinion: I have the version for Nikon Z and with this system it fits perfectly. The focus is extremely fast given the electronic assistance and the fluidity of the ring. I was looking for a lens that somehow replicated the atmosphere of the old 50mm f1.7 contax / Zeiss that I also use on the Z (completely manual and with some renunciation on the focus to infinity) and I found it, the Voightlander reproduces the scenes in a similar way adding perhaps a little more microcontrast. The color rendering, especially in favorable light situations, is excellent and extremely natural. The similarity with zeiss is not a coincidence since both lenses are produced by Cosina in Japan (and it shows). I do not venture into other technical considerations (various aberrations, sharpness tests, etc.) because not only do I not have the tools but I do not consider them useful, what I wrote is only the result of the observation of prints in various sizes.

Pros: Material, dimensions, yield

Cons: A bit slow in the Af with techart

Opinion: A lens that was recommended to me and I immediately understood why. It has a magic of its own, you have to understand it before you have it in its perfect use, you have to fall in love with it to understand what it can do. Suitable for any type of photography you want. I have the Leica M version that I use with sony and techart, here alas the focusing time is obviously slower than a normal lens automatically, but for the results it offers, it is easily forgiven. Used with black and white photos is particular, because it returns a vignetting so beautiful that if some may not like it to me it drives me crazy. It is very sharp already at full opening but closing the diaphragm slightly cuts like a blade see this photo of mine (https://www.juzaphoto.com/galleria.php?l=it&t=3728431) just to understand. In short, since I have two Leica I use it much less but before I never detached it from my sony. The price in my opinion, knowing the price lists of other lenses, is also low compared to all its characteristics. It brings back a bit to the time of analog, both for the materials used, the shape and especially for the rendering of black and white images, if I had had it at the time of olympus on my OmDM5 it would have been a real gem!!!

Pros: Construction, focus ring, 10-blade diaphragm, weight, dimensions, focal length

Cons: See opinion

Opinion: A lens that must please, with particular characteristics. The undercorrection of spherical aberration, which is a defect, can be exploited to one's advantage in many situations. 10-blade diaphragm, for a 10-point star effect. The shift of the focus, forces you to refoche every time you change the aperture. Field curvature to infinity, which requires a little more care on focusing. Angle of view which for my taste is great for many fields of use. Ultimately, a lens you love or hate.

Pros: Unique yield, exaggerated opening, small and quite light

Cons: MF, but you already know

Opinion: Socket in VM version to use it on Sony with Techart. A crazy lens, even considering the middle adapter there are no solutions with the same aperture-size-cost ratio in Sony. Unique image rendering, to which some "defects" contribute including vignetting and not perfect sharpness at the edges to TA (I am interested in zero). Between 1.2 and f2 it returns very characteristic images, which to me communicate great immersion in the scene thanks to the relatively wide-angle focal length and the blurred that returns. In the center it is already very sharp at 1.2 and closed a few stops becomes a blade. But you do not take it for this, to be avoided if you are looking for extreme sharpness and total absence of aberrations. Autofocus chapter with Techart: it is not like a native lens (of course), but I find it definitely usable. As speed we are at the levels of the Canon entries of a few years ago, however fat that drips for an MF lens. A bit of hunting, but then hooks perciso. On the third generation it also gives me the eye af. It also works well continuously. I perceive a very slight lag between pressing the button and the actual shot that with native optics I do not have, but they are all things that for the use I do (portrait, street, events) count very little. If you like the focal length, which I find perfect as a handyman, you will not take it off from the machine anymore. A gem.

Pros: Uniqueness, blurred, optical rendering, sharpness, dimensions, materials, build quality

Cons: Hood cost (120 €!)

Opinion: The Voigtlander Nokton 40mm f/1.2 that I own is with Leica M connection, to which I mounted the Techart PRO adapter to use it on Sony A7III and A7RIV. it is a magical lens, unique in its kind. The rendering is a mix of 3D pop, sharpness, blurred and vignetting that makes the subject literally leave the image. The dimensions are incredibly small, the materials are excellent and the construction quality is a reference. Everything is made of metal, the clicks of the diaphragm ring are very pleasant. It looks like a fine watch. it is Sharp already at f/1.2 but brings out the best by already closing the aperture at f/1.4 and impressive from f/2 onwards. With the Techart PRO autofocus adapter you have all the features of modern Sony, such as eye AF on humans and animals. The Leica-M version is more compact than the Sony FE version and there are some small optical differences. For this reason they should stand in two separate tabs. Some reviewers, like Steve Huff, say the M version is slightly more punchy but I haven't had a way to test them both.
