p.30 #1 · p.30 #1 · Voigtlander 75mm f/1.5 Nokton Review


I was today years old when I realized the part of the lens that the filter attaches to is actually a ring that comes off. My black lens had this ring pre-attached to the lens, so I put the hood onto the ring, tightened down the little screw and never gave it much thought. My new silver version had the ring pre-attached to the hood, and the hood screws onto the lens that way. Mind blown, lol.

I'm going to have to retest this on the GFX to check coverage without this ring/filter/hood contraption on it.

The hood for the silver version doesn't feel as cheap as the black version. Does the black hood have a matte-black interior interior paint? I thought the black version was just the same black paint on the inside as it had on the outside but I can't remember.

Would be interested to hear if this lens covers the GFX sensor.

Pretty sure Steve checked it on a GFX sensor, and the coverage was between FF and MF coverage, so you have to shoot the GFX slightly cropped for usable results. Itís somewhere on the FF lenses on GFX thread.

Sounds about like what it did for me with the ring on there. I guess since it's a telephoto, the ring may not make much difference. Or maybe he tested with the ring on like me, not realizing it screws off?

hmmmÖdonít know. You might ask him. The 75 Lux offered similar coverage on the GFX too at portrait (typical) shooting distance. Canít take that ring off that one.

75VC has hard vignette on GFX so it is 75lux. Even the 75VC is the only recent VC lens that have minimal cat eye issue. I believe the hard vignette is from M mount. 80lux is fine.

'Does the black hood have a matte-black interior interior paint?'

Cosina want to give users options, like the dual lens caps on some lenses, one for the hood one for the hoodless lens. This 75/1.5 hood is finished internally in matte black and has strengthening ribbing. Still weighs just 18 grams. The mounting ring adds that little extra protection against light ingress and sets off the filter and/or hood from the protruding front element. Lens cap demounts with hood in place - very important for some (me).

My 75 Lux did hard vignette at any distance, but surprisingly the CV 35/1.7 did not!

I do appreciate the design more than I did before knowing I can remove the ring. I would have still preferred the ring have been a permanent part of the hood without needing that little set screw on the side, but maybe that's a nod to a retro hood design.

It's quite likely, the retro idea. They are in the position where they know many of their lenses will remain low recognition and low volume sellers - it frees them up for greater departure from modern day conventional norms.

'Cosina engineers designed this lens to fit recent Vintage Line models that have body style closer to 1950 production. It makes Voigtlander 75mm F1.5 look very unique. From the other side that uniqueness leads to increased complexity of components assembly..' 'Itís great to see brass guiders in focusing ring and helicoid construction that have option to readjust their position for higher movement precision. Optical frame is beautifully crafted..'

Nice to see some activity in this thread again. Hope more people will post photos soon!
Some shots from last winter (so far this one has been terrible with mostly rain and wind and no sun). All taken mid-day.

On the GFX at ~8 feet @ f/1.5 Ė corrected as much for vignetting as possible without using a custom radial mask.







Max vignette removal without overexposing the edges

Just to bump this thread back onto the main page. Amazing lens. Pairs great with either 28mm or 35mm lenses.

For many intimate landscapes to work well, the lens must cope effectively with out of focus content, whether it shows up in edge of fade areas in edge-of-diffraction aperture images, or more strikingly because the scene was shot at wide apertures to highlight a centering motif in the image. This is one of the few lenses I've felt comfortable with doing this.
