Good idea Paul. Way to represent the Voigt's out there. Great images so far.


Here are a couple from the CV 90 + NEX-5N.

Ohh, please no more, your gonna make me want to buy back in to the SLII line

Had the SLII 20 and 40 but now there're gone.

I'd love to see some more samples from the 58/1.4 and 90/3.5

Hi Jacob, I remember that first image from the NEX forum and I still like it.

Which CV 90/3.5 are you using - them M mount version, SLI or SLII?

Thanks Jeff. Pretty much anything I post here will be re-post from the NEX thread since I'm using all CV glass on my 5N now. I really like the small form factor, and great value.

My 90 is the LTM. I don't think an M mount version has ever been made. Here are a few more from the 90, more colorful this time...

Beautiful stuff from the 125 guys. I always wanted that lens for my 5D, but never got around to it. I started thinking that the 180/4 would make a nice addition to what I've got... maybe one of these days.


The more CV shots I look at the more I'm starting to think I recognize a little bit of signature in the way the Voigt blues and neutral colors are rendered. Could just be my imagination (?)

Love that butterfly MichaD and love your CV 125 shots as well Paul. If they ever re-release the 180 in EF mount, I'll be all over it.

Lots of great shots on page 1 too....too many to mention. :-)

What do you call it when you constantly misfocus on a 5D with a Ee-s, and native EOS mount on 125/2.5?..

Could it be that your focusing screen needs to be shimmed for accurate manual focus? Does this happen with any of your other lenses?

Martin: Love your B&W images on the previous page, especially the last one of the pipes!

Voigtlander rendering... My feeling is it's between the snap of Zeiss and the lusciousness of Leica.

Ron, Really impressive shots. Especially like the first one. Such a beautiful rendering and color. Again, it proves good photographer make any lens singing.
About VC 75mm, do you notice focus shift? My copy is front focused wide open and go away f2.8, not sure if the DOF covers it or optimized for f2.8? never investigate it since I use 35 and 50mm most with M9.

Thanks Michael. Yes, I noticed focus shift with the 75. I think Cosina optimized it at around f/2.8 for rangefinder focusing. If optimized for f/1.8, then there would be noticeable back focus as it's stopped down until depth of field is deep enough (not sure when it would reach that point). I've only tried this one copy, so I wasn't sure about this, but it's interesting to note that you've had very nearly the exact same experience as I have. I did a test where I photographed a sequence with the camera on a tripod from wide open to stopped down, and the focus shift was pretty noticeable.

A few months ago I found a reasonably priced 90 Summarit and now use it more than the Voigtlander, which I will likely sell. If you're looking for modern lens performance, such as good across the frame sharpness, then I think the Summarits are a better option. The 75 Summarit is supposed to be even better than the 90 and both are smaller and lighter than the 75 f/1.8, which I honestly think is an f/2 lens because I can see no difference in exposures between f/1.8 and f/2. With some M9 experience under my belt now, I also believe that the jump from 50mm to 90mm is more comfortable than the smaller change from 50mm to 75mm.

Ron, beautiiful shots with the 75/1.8, especially the 1st.

I tried but could not make that lens work for me despite the beautiful OOF rendering.

Sticky fingers?




Here's a few of the M39 Mount Voigtlander Nokton Aspherical 50mm f/1.5 all at f/1.5. Nothing special, just a few snapshots in and around the house to see what it's like. It seems pretty nice. In UBER HIGH contrast areas it has a 5 pixel PF but it's real low saturation! I've seen some APOs that were like that too - with a faded PF.

Thanks Jacob. I recall you inquired about the lens in a thread maybe about a half a year ago... As I mentioned, I will also sell mine. I think it's a nice lens, but the Summarit better suits my needs.

Bif - thanks - I have a 50 f/1.5 coming and look forward to trying it.

Cool! We can be lens brothers.

BTW, what does CV stand for or mean?
