Leica Boutique and my Voigtländer Nokton 40mm f/1.4 write-up!

Ever since I wrote a piece about the Voigtländer Nokton 40mm f/1.4 back in July, it’s become one of my more popular posts.

It’s no wonder, since this little gem of a lens has always been underrated but is increasingly gaining its share of admirers as people explore the various mirrorless camera platforms (as well as classic rangefinder photography, of course).

One of those admirers of the little Nokton 40 is my friend Jean Bardaji, the distinguished owner of Leica Boutique in Montreal, Canada.  Jean is very knowledgeable and passionate about photography and has long appreciated the little Nokton Classic MC 40/1.4.

So, when Jean recently decided to link to my write-up on the Leica Boutique Voigtländer page of his website (click into Voigtlander Nokton Classic MC F1.4/40mm), I was quite honoured.

Jean has actually sold me two copies of this lens, as I have always found his prices on Voigtländer (and Zeiss) lenses to be the most competitive in the market.  More than that, his service has always been exceptional.

So I wish to thank Jean, for all of his help and would not hesitate to recommend the services of Leica Boutique to anyone looking for this lens (or any other).

      Hi again Dan. Yes, I would recommend it for you because of the f/1.4 aperture and the slightly wider – and more interesting – 40mm field of view. Even if you don’t think you need the wider aperture for low light, you can still benefit artistically from the shallow depth of field conferred at f1.4. Hope that helps, Peter.

    Peter, Marvelous work and I ended up here from Jean’s link in their latest Leica newsletter. Your portraits are outstanding. I’d also like to add what a wonderful guy Jean is to do deal with and would reccomend his shop to everyone. His professionalism and compassion for the medium is second to none. I am also lucky enough to call him my friend. BTW-now you’ve got me craving this lens to add to my arsenal!
