About this book
The lens is generally the most expensive and least understood part of any camera. In this book, Rudolf Kingslake traces the historical development of the various types of lenses from Daguerre's invention of photography in 1839 through lenses commonly used today.From an early lens still being manufactured for use in low-cost cameras to designs made possible through such innovations as lens coating, rare-earth glasses, and computer aided lens design and testing, the author details each major advance in design and fabrication. The book explains how and why each new lens type was developed, and why most of them have since been abandoned. This authoritative history of lens technology also includes brief biographies of several outstanding lens designers and manufacturers of the past.

    Satisfying to use if you're into manual lens

    I was thrilled when this lens came out. This is a pricey lens so I did lots of research before deciding to get one.This lens is perhaps the sturdiest lens even for the Micro Four Thirds system. It's full metal body is built like a tank, but all that metal puts the weight at 410g. Regardless of your camera body, it's going to be front heavy.The lens cap can be a bit loose. It can come off accidentally if you hit the latch. Mine dropped while I was crossing the road as I hit my hand against it. Luckily there's no traffic and I managed to pick it up. Just be careful of the lens cap.On the lens are the aperture ring and manual focus ring.The aperture ring starts at f/0.95 and increases by half a stop incrementally until f/16. The ring is firm but easy to turn.This is a fully manual lens. There's no auto-focus. There's also no electrical contacts so camera would be getting any EXIF data like aperture size, or lens type, but you... 5/5 Parka (Singapore) - See all my reviews, August 6, 2011

    Worth every penny

    This lens is a Micro Four Thirds (MFT) system seller (at least, it did it for me).First, if you really like autofocus and find manual focus intimidating or in general, a drawback, then the Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 Leica DG Summilux Aspherical Lens for Micro 4/3 System is probably a better choice.From photozone reviews, the Leica seems to be sharp wide open, but doesn't get much sharper when stopped down. Vignetting is more pronounced than on the Nokton. The Nokton gets to be sharper than the Leica when stopped down and is a bit more than a stop faster (lets twice as much light through at f/0.95 than the Leica at f/1.4, which means that shutter speeds can be twice as fast - an important advantage in low light).Voigtlander lenses are produced by Cosina, who also produces the modern Zeiss lenses for DSLRs. Their manufacturing is impeccable - these are some of the best built lenses you can find these days. This Nokton is no exception. It comes well packaged... 5/5 Laurentiu Cristofor - See all my reviews, November 20, 2011

    Fantastic Specialty Lens

    This is a great lens. For the price it obviously should be. I am not going to rehash the optical and build characteristics as the top reviewer did an outstanding job of that. The only thing I didn't see mentioned was the purple fringing a bright light sources at wide open apertures. This is common for fast lenses and can be fixed in post. With all of that said, this is a speciality lens. Since it is manual focus, a great application is for shooting video in very low light situations. This would be a difficult low light street shooting lens because of the manual focus and heavy weight. A better option is the Panasonic 25mm f/1.4. That lens is a little over 1 stop slower than this one but the autofocus makes it better in that application. Other reviewers have mentioned the soft corners. All fast lenses are soft in the corners (even the $12K Leica 50 f/.95) and that is part of their charm. Most of the time I am trying to blur or vignette the corners anyway so this aids in... 5/5 shuTTL3bus "shuTTL3bus @gmail .com" (United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95 Nokton Manual Focus Lens for Micro 4/3 Mount (Accessory) This is a great lens.

    Voigtlander's splendid update of the Leica Summaron

    The Voigtlander Color-Skopar Pan 35mm f2.5 wide angle lens should appeal to Leica screw mount and M rangefinder camera users who are interested in travelling light, with a pocket camera that is almost easy to fit inside a deep coat or shirt pocket. This lens may be the ideal tool for street photographers interested in acquiring a compact 35mm rangefinder lens; ergonimically it almost resembles the Contax Zeiss 45mm f2.8 Tessar or the Nikon 45mm f2.8 Nikkor lenses with respect to size and shape. I have seen at Erwin Puts's website an enthusiastic technical report by him in which he claims that this lens is optically superior to Leica's vintage 35mm f2.8 Summaron lens made for its M mount rangefinder cameras from the 1950s to early 1970s; I believe Popular Photography had another splendid technical report on this lens in a recent issue. Owners of M mount rangefinder cameras will have to purchase a screw mount to M mount adaptor to mount this lens onto their cameras (However, this lens... 5/5 John Kwok (New York, NY USA) - See all my reviews, July 16, 2005

    0 4/5 josh - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Voigtlander Color-Skopar Pan 35mm f/2.5 Wide Angle Manual Focus Lens - Black (Electronics) i bought this lens for my leica and it is actually an updated version which uses the leica m mount. when i first got it, i couldnt get over how compact it was! the build quality is decent, but it feels downgraded compared to my zeiss 50mm f2 planar. the aperture ring is loose and is easily knocked out of place. the focusing ring feels plasticy, but overall focusing is smooth. i cant gripe too much because the leica and zeiss equivalents to this lens are several times more expensive. overall this lens is pretty decent. wide open, its a little soft, vignettes, and ive noticed some color fringing. for black and white, it does give it that "classic" look. stopped down, this lens performs well and produces sharp images. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 3, 2010
