In 1 870 the aperture of the Dallmeyer type was raised to//2.37 by HFA Zincke- Sommer,8 half-brother of FR von Voigtlander (Fig. 3.6). In 1858 Dallmeyer himself had achieved a similar aperture in the little lens used by Thomas Skaife in ...

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.

    A charmer

    Update: 5 Mar 2013I've been charmed by this lens. Ever since using the , I was hooked on manual lens. I love the way it handles with a dedicated aperture ring.The 17.5mm lens is the wider and bigger brother of the 25mm lens.The lens comes with its lens cap, a wide angle screw-on lens hood and the lens hood cap.The build quality is excellent. The whole thing made of metal and glass. It's one of the larger and heavier lens compared to other Micro Four Thirds (MFT) lens. It weighs 540g.The heavy weight means it's better to use this lens on a camera with a good grip. It's still comfortable enough to hang around the neck the whole day because with camera and body, it's still under 1kg.It's also bigger. Filter thread is 58mm. I use a... 5/5 Parka (Singapore) - See all my reviews, July 18, 2012

    Makes night time photography with a micro 4/3rds camera practical

    Other reviewers have given a very good account of the optics of this lens and I agree with what they say. It has it's limitations but in general it's a good lens. What I think the other reviews don't touch on however is how a 17.5mm 0.95 lens makes the 4/3rds system into an excellent low light system, comparable with the best of what full frame cameras such as the Nikon D600 have to offer. And it does so with a much smaller, lighter, and travel friendly footprint. Since the 4/3rds system is generally considered a slow sensor camera and a poor low light performer I think it's notable how this lens turns that notion on it's head.On a full frame camera a 0.95 lens like this one has a very narrow depth of field, bordering on the unusable. At 3' the depth of field is 1.5" which is barely enough to have the nose and face in focus at the same time and it's tricky to make work in low light. But the same is not true on the 4/3rds system where a 0.95 lens will have a more... 5/5 S. Reed Koch (Seattle, WA USA) - See all my reviews, September 29, 2012

    WOW !!!

    I write to emphasize one point: that the .095 aperture is not merely an incremental improvement, it's fundamental change. I defer to others on most technical issues, and claim no special expertise in still photography or video. I have shot still photographs intermittently since the 1970's on a variety of cameras from Leica CL's to Canon DSLR's. More recently I have been interested in video, which is why I sold an older Canon DSLR to switch to the GH3.Your photographic background may be more informed than my own, but my first experience of looking through the viewfinder at .095 in a nearly dark room was simply mind blowing. The experience is much more than merely letting in a little more light; it's as though you are turning a powerful beam on the subject. When you take the camera away from your eye to reexamine the subject, you realize that you can't even see vaguely what the camera at .095 illuminates clearly.Nothing can prepare you for this result, and no... 5/5 William V.

    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 (United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95 Nokton Manual Focus Lens for Micro 4/3 Mount (Camera) This is a great lens.

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

    0 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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 22, 2012
