Yep, that looks EXACTLY like my 40mm 1.4. Sometimes I like the look though. Some of my favorite pics on flickr are from the 35mm 1.4 VM thread. There are some real gems.

Yes, they are very similar in rendering. I have used the Voigtlander 35mm f/1.4 and 40/1.4 VM lenses on the Leica but I really like the E-mount's ability to focus as close as 0.3m. It's where this lens shines!

Exchanged my Voigtlander-M 35/1.4 MC for a SC and took a few shots today.

After a while looking at those 35mm 1.4 samples, reading all opinions, I'm starting to love that funky busy bokeh.
I already have 40mm 1.2 for smooth OOF, but this 35mm looks so similar to old school glass, that I think I would like to buy one

I'm the opposite. I think it's a tad too busy for bokeh.

The bokeh is what makes the "classics" the classics.

Without the funky bokeh it's just another 35.

The bokeh is very similar to the Leica 35/1.4 lux pre-asph's. Lots of character but less glow for the Voigtlander.

Yes, this is the right one for E-Mount. There is only one version for E-Mount (Voigtlšnder 35 f1.4 Nokton Classic). For M-Mount you can find version I and II - the newer version II is comparable with the E-Mount version. To make it even more complicated: Version II for M-Mount is available with single coating "SC" and with multi coating "MC" but the "MC" is not printed on the frontring of the lens - if there is no "SC" it is the multi coated version.
(The E-Mount Version is only available as multi coated version - so no signs concerning coating)

I have a question (also asked it in 40mm 1.2 thread): I noticed a strange behaviour of my CV 40mm 1.2 and 35mm 1.4.
Both lens when focus is set to infinity show out of focus, but when I turn focus ring just about 1mm back, it in perfect focus.
What is the focus distance when its set to infinity?
I thought that if I set it to infinity, everything from like 10 meters away from me should be in focus.
I noticed it on a tree that was about good 30 meters away from me.
Since I noticed it, its so annoying, that I started to hate it to be honest...

Are your lenses M or E-mount version? If the latter, the lens' hard stop can't be perfect because of the lower flange distance tolerance with Sony bodies.

E mount.
So this is why? I thought my A7II is faulty, cause had this with both lens. Just realised last week that I always need to turn focus ring back about 1-2mm to have nice sharpness...
So all this time I was taking out of focus photos at hard stop infinity - now I know why. Thanks Fred for solving my problem

Yes, with the E-mount, the hard stop goes beyond infinity. It's usually at the center of the infinity symbol instead of the hard stop. The hard stop is the true infinity when using the M-mount on a M-body. (If the lens is well calibrated)

Resurrecting this thread. I have a chance to buy a 35 1.4, but there is no hood with the lens. Looking at the LH-6, it doesn't appear to the same thing as it it slotted/vented.

Can someone confirm this lens does actually come with a hood and, if so, whether there is a part number for it?

Thanks!

The E-mount version is supplied with a threaded hood. However, the 35/1.4 Nokton M-mount does not come with a hood but the LH-6 is specifically designed for it and the 40/1.4 Nokton lens. (Bayonet style)

Thanks. The one I'm looking at is secondhand and doesn't appear to have one in the box. A third party version will do, but wondered if, for some bizarre reason, the Sony hood is different in some substantive way from the LH-6

The hood for the Sony version is just a threaded metal hood and it was indeed included with the lens. Perhaps the seller misplaced it. You can get any 58mm metal hood for it though. I don't think Cosina offers a replacement.
The LH-6 has only works with the M-mount version.

Thanks again... the LH-6 is over £50 in the UK... so I'm kinda glad it won't fit!

I may not need a hood, but I can easily pick up a black metal one that will suit the style of the lens.
