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.

    Top notch as expected.

    5/5 Gambo (Port City) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f/1.4 Wide Angle Leica M Mount Lens "Single Coated"- Black (Accessory) This lens handles very well and feels like one solid chuck of steel on the front of your camera. It is VERY sharp but not terribly so even in the center at f/1.4. Super sharp, but not macro lens or leica sharp. For the price, it simply can't be beat!

    My Leica M3 embraces Voigtlander Nokton 35mm Wide Angle lens

    5/5 Quiet Hut - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f/1.4 Wide Angle Leica M Mount Lens "Single Coated"- Black (Accessory) Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f/1.4 lens I purchased for my 1958 Leica M3 was a trophy for me. It helped me photograph exactly what I wanted on the recent Trans Canada Train trip I took with my usual tools of trade, the Nikon digital (D90) and the Leica. The wide angle lens delivered exactly what I needed, and even more: sharpness of the images as well as the depth and breadth of images.

    A challenging personal experience.

    This was the first lens I purchased for my Leica M9 body in September of last year. It was also the only lens I used on that body until I purchased a Summicron M f2/28 and a few more other original Leica Lenses. I bought my Nokton f1.1/50 here. I bought it from the Photo Village.I paid $999.- The delivery was prompt. The initial quality of the lens very impressive.The lens was indeed quite excellent when first used. The depth of field was incredibly narrow and the photographs coming out of the camera were unlike anything I had been able to shoot with any kind of equipment until then.I felt like I had made a great purchase. I could have written a review very comparable to the other one here.There was no other raking I could possibly give this lens but five stars.Focussing was indeed a challenge when shooting wide open, but focussing was somehow my job. I had to learn to refine my ability to match the performance of this apparently very fine and also... 3/5 Bo Lorentzen (Los Angeles) - See all my reviews, January 27, 2011

    90% of the bang for 10% of the money

    This lens is a huge kick in the pants, ultra fast exotic glass, for beer and hotdog prices.This is the FASTEST non-Leica lens currently in production for the M mount system, and it sells for about 10% of the Worlds fastest Lens, this may be all you need to know to make your purchase decision.This lens WILL make you want to go bang your head on a brick wall, it is frustrating, challenging, it will make you look like a idiot again and again.... and when you are ready to give up focusing it... it will deliver pictures like nothing you have ever seen before. A friend of mine bought the lens, gave up, returned the lens, then two weeks bought the lens again... Saying "nothing else render like this lens and I can't live without it". Now you know, so don't come blame me when you buy this lens and find yourself hopelessly addicted to ultra thin focus photography, it is not my fault that you can't focus 1/16 of a inch at 5 feet, its also not the lens's fault, don't buy... 5/5 Older Dog (Connecticut) - See all my reviews This review is from: Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.1 Leica M Mount Lens - Black (Electronics) Bo Lorentzson in his review did a fine job on this lens.I'm a former pro, who in retirement works hard at being an amateur. It sometimes lets me put more pressure on myself than if I were working, something my former colleagues find hard to believe. I'm an avid shooter with an extensive digitized archive that is historically significant for a 10 year period, something I sometimes disassociate from and wonder if that really was me.I came of age at the same time as the Nikon F, roughly 1960 forward. I shot with everything else from 35mm rangefinder to 8x10 and aside from shooting, I collect cameras because I can and I have a special interest in Leicas for a funny reason. I owned one about 1960 and it was just about ideal for unclose news work with a short lens. From there on, the Nikon F took over (you always worked with at least 3 cameras). But I sold the Leica, not because I didn't love the M3, but because I couldn't afford to watch it get beaten up and put...

    Despite some critics...

    4/5 DBB - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Cosina Voigtlander Nokton 10.5mm F0.95 Lens For Micro Four Thirds USA Warranty (Electronics) Received this lens yesterday as I have been obsessing over a 10mm (super wide) angle lens for my lens bag since 2010. Keep in mind that while this new lens of mine was in the midst of being delivered I stumbled upon some photo sample complaints that the image was not tack sharp wide open at f/0.95. I figured that the high resolution mode would help. In my opinion it does help somewhat - but then again I don't think anyone buying a photo would take a magnifying glass to it, possibly in a photo competition. While being sharp is important to me, it is more important that it lets in a lot of light since I'm more focused on natural light photography at the moment. Besides, I can do some lens corrections in post processing., July 29, 2015

    One of the best items - not just adapter - for my Sony

    5/5 Ben Zim (NY/NJ) - See all my reviews This review is from: Voigtlander VM-E Close Focus Adapter for VM-Mount Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera (Accessory) This is invaluable. One of the best items - not just adapter - for my Sony. Starts with a super solid adapter that is rock solid. But the ability to add close focusing and use as an additional focusing ring - is just beyond my ability describe in terms of value. Just friggen great! I use with the Voigtlander 40/1.4 which allows for far closer focusing and focus the lens in general as well as on the fly adjustment of where infinity is set. I also use with the Zeiss ZM 25mm which now becomes, to my surprise, an excellent lens for food. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 11, 2014
