A History of the Photographic Lens

Creator: Rudolf Kingslake | Science - 1989

In 1 870 the aperture of the Dallmeyer type was raised to//2.37 by H. F. A. Zincke- Sommer,8 half-brother of F. R. 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.

    Excellent value 21mm lens for Leica

    I am in the process of selling this lens in favor of the Zeiss 18mm f/4, yet still I have a very high opinion of it.Here's the good:-This lens is very sharp. Central sharpness is great even wide open at f/4. Stopped down to f/8, sharpness across the frame is competitive with the 21mm Summilux (which I tried on loan) in a 13x19" print from my Canon PIXMA Pro-100. Unlike the Summilux, there is little to no purple fringing with the Color Skopar.-There is little distortion. A bit of barrel. Again, comparable to the Leicas in this respect.-It's crazy small and light. Half the weight of the f/3.4 Super Elmar.-It's inexpensive. Only 14% of the Super Elmar price.-It has excellent build quality, a small, built-in hood, and takes regular 39mm filters-It has a minimum focus distance of just 0.5mNow for the bad:-It's has less edge sharpness than the Leica lenses - noticeable when... 5/5 Kon Peki (Boston, MA USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Way better than you'd expect

    4/5 Brad W (NYC) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Voigtlander Color-Skopar 21mm f/4.0 Pancake Lens with Leica M Mount - Black (Camera) This lens if fantastic. It performs really well, but where it really shines is in how compact it is. I'm used to F/4 lenses because I also have a mamiya 7II, and honestly I'd rather have quality over speed more of the time anyway. This thing easily fits in a pocket, and it's 21mm....just an awesome value. I wish Leica made something this cool.

    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.

    4 star lens with a 6 star price.

    5/5 kendalltristan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.1 Leica M Mount Lens - Black (Electronics) This lens is not optically perfect. The bokeh is a bit harsh, but it's okay. I wish the aperture adjusted in 1/3 stops but it adjusts in 1/2 stops. Etc, etc, whatever. This lens costs a small fraction of the price of a used Leica Noctilux and costs barely a blip compared to a new Noctilux. The Leica's aren't optically perfect either, but I suppose an argument could be made that the bokeh is notably better. Anyway, as a 50mm lens, this is a solid 4 star lens: it sharpens up nicely, has no major optical issues, and is built quite well. As a Noctilux alternative, this lens is a godsend.

    Amazing fast lens for the money

    5/5 Christopher Arthur (Houston, TX) - See all my reviews This review is from: Voigtlander M 50mm f/1.5 Nokton Aspherical Lens - Leica M Mount Lens - Black (Accessory) I love this lens!By far, the best fast prime lens for the Leica screwmount or M-mount cameras for <$500. The main competitors are going to be over 40 years old and are usually softer wide open. The Nokton is very sharp at f/1.5, which is the primary reason to buy a fast lens.It's a Leica thread mount, which is good because there aren't other modern lenses for the older M39 mount cameras, such as the Leica III or Canon P. You also can use it on an M-mount with an adapter. (But you can't use an M-mount lens on a screw mount camera) Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 9, 2009
