Tomorrow, the Voigtländer Nokton 40/1.4.

I’m gathering together some images taken with the Voigtländer Nokton 40/1.4, a most underrated lens. I’ve used it extensively over the years on both digital (M9,M8) and film (MP, M3, M2) bodies and have a great respect for it.

It’s not a review, just a brief discussion, and it’s coming tomorrow.

    I’m really looking forward to this. Wish you had some examples on a Epson RD1 to discuss as well.

    Thanks Guy. I’m not doing any side-by-side testing… as I stated, I just wanted to post some photos and discuss the lens a little (for those completely unfamiliar with it). I’m surprised that you would want to see some examples on the RD-1, as you are in possession of a treasure trove of beautiful images taken with that combination.

    By the way, my computer died today, right after I was putting the finishing touches on the article. I’m trying to re-write it now, but it will not be the same. Oh well…

    Thanks so much for your review of this wonderful lens. I have a Leica M8, my first lens was. Voigtlander Color Skopar 50mm f2 – that was an amazing, small, versatile lens. I sold it to get a Nokton 50mm f1.1, which is an even more amazing lens. However, it is too large and heavy to for easy daily use and travel. I also found the Bokeh quite harsh. However, I recently managed to pick up a Voigtlander 40mm f1.4 and am in love with it! The size, bokeh and all round image quality are amazing. I only wish that it showed 40mm frame lines. I am not going to file it to trigger the 35mm lines.

    Your review is great. Thanks so much!
