Voigtlander 40mm f1.2


I have decided to do a quick review on Voigtlander 40mm f1.2. When I first heard about the lens, I was really interested in what this lens could do. For a f1.2 apecture lens, this is considered small. Check out the size and weight of this lens and compare it to Distagon 35mm f1.4. I hear you, there is no auto focus on this lens. Yeap, thats correct. You are basically trading weight and size for auto focus. You need to decide what do you need. Is it auto focus or you want a compact form factor.

I wrote this review simply because I couldnt find much sample photos and I was pulling my hair out deciding whether I should get this lens or not. In the end, I took the plunge and went for it. These are my sample photos taken at an event that I covered. I hope it helps you in your decision making.

I hope to do a more in depth review of this lens. Feel free to comment or email me, what you want me to cover in more details.
