Lately I've been shooting with Voigtlander lenses

    Ah, this'll be one of those threads that started elsewhere (Leica Place) but ended up at Cameraderie with the merger of other sites. That's ok though, Voigts are available on plenty of other systems and I love 'em so hope this image thread keeps going. Here's one of mine (my 1,000th post!).

  3. I use one Voigtlander. The 75 mm 2.5 Color Heliar. I adapted it for use on my A7Rll.
    I've been very happy with the combination. Have to say the combination is not exactly "Compact" due mainly to the weight of the camera.

    I've got a couple of them, very different beasts indeed: the 40mm f/2 Ultron for Nikon F, the 35mm f/1.4 Nokton and the 21mm f/4 Color-Skopar for Leica M. The Nokton is a capricious lens - very sharp and controlled at f/5.6, funky and a bit unpredicatable at f/1.4, with crazy bokeh. The Ultron is a very nice pancake - sharp, with very pleasant and even rendering. I enjoy using both these lenses, but my favourite is the tiny 21mm pancake: bold, punchy images, decently sharp wide open, flares like mad, but this can be used for dramatic effects. I also like the fact that it's a reasonably well correct lens for distortion and aberrations. Even so, I also like it for b&w:
