p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Voigtlander SL/SL-II Images


Having been an owner of the wonderful Voigtlander 90/3.5 SL-II for a while and now just recently the 180/4 SL I wanted to start a thread for all of use that own any of the great SL or SL-II series Voigtlanders to share images taken with whatever camera you may have that can mount these great lenses (either natively or via an adapter).

Please post the lens model as well as the camera used along with ISO, f-stop, and shutter speed if possible.

John

I'll start it off with a few from the 90/3.5 SL-II and the 180/4 SL.

Nice shot!

I had the 40/2 SL-II back when I had the Nikon D300, but I could not focus it at f/2 to save my life. Hence I sold it before going to full frame. I need to take another look at that lens.

Focus confirm didnt work? Sorta suprising given it works just fine on my Fuji S5 (D200 clone).

On my D300 the focus confirm dot was not precise enough at f/2 - one of the reasons I upgraded to a D700 . . .

I'm surprised you had issues, I had the same lens and body back in 2009 and had few issues at f2. In fact I also had a D40 at the same time and the 40/2 SLII spent a lot of time on it at f2 with no issues.

Frankly I liked the lens better on APS-C than on FF (I also was shooting an FM2n and FE2 at the time).

That doesn't make much sense. The D300 and D700 have almost identical AF systems.

Perhaps there was an issue with the body, or it was in need of micro-adjust

Considering mine works on f1.4 lens, which is by the way hard to focus by eye even on regular SLR, I think it was more body issue. Did it AF well?

Long ago water under the bridge. I now have a D800 and I can focus my 50/1.2 Nikkor fairly successfully with the focus confirmation dot . . . .

Great pic lars. One of the reasons I replaced my 105/2.5 Nikkor with the 90/3.5 CV is the much closer focusing distance AND the 90/3.5 is much sharper up close. For me, f/3.5 provides a thin-enough DOF for most of my uses.

I only have one CV lens myself, but it is one of my favourites.

Taken at f/3.5 I believe.

helimat: Sick colors in your second photo of the flower! Amazing!

I love my 180 SL even though I rarely use it. It's just awesome to be able to take a telephoto out and nobody will be able to tell that you're carrying such a long lens
