A history of the photographic lens

Creator: Rudolf Kingslake | Photography - 1989-10-28

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.

    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, October 16, 2011

    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

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

    Fan-Freakin-Tastic

    The Voigtlander 35 f1.2 V2 is a PHENOMENAL lens! I'm using it on the Sony NEX 7 with a Novoflex adapter. This setup is rock solid compared to other adapters I've tried. Anyway...Images taken with the lens are tack sharp. Wide open - this lens paints images beautifully. The bokeh is very pleasing to my eye. Like most ultrafast lenses, there is some minor vignetting, but it's absolutely aesthetically pleasing. Mechanically -everything clicks, & snicks, & turns wonderfully smoothly as it should. Yes, it weighs more than other 35mm M lenses. It's not objectionable though, the heft lends an air of solidness & security when holding the camera. In other words...it feels balanced & right in your hands. At the same time that I purchased this lens, I had the Voigtlander Nokton 35 f1.4 and the Zeiss 35 f2 in my possession. In short...the Nokton 35 f1.4 is nicely built (for the price), produces softer images, has focus shift, but does produce nice images within it's limitations.

    THE lens to get for the a7r

    0 5/5 Eliud "Indicator7" (Cleveland, OH USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f/1.2 II Aspherical Wide Angle Leica M Mount Lens - Black (Camera) This lens is magic. Period. I am using it on a Sony a7r and can honestly tell you that I could happily forego any other lens for this one. I have the CV 40/1.4 and so I hesitated a bit -- given the relatively similar focal length and speed -- but there is no comparison. The 35/1.2 renders higher contrast images and has a more refined bokeh. Also, it's sharp without being quite as clinical as my Sony-Zeiss 55/1.8. Lastly, the build quality is amazing. This lens is hefty (in a good way) and has very smooth and precise focus and aperture rings. The combined weight of the lens plus the a7r is 2 lbs, 7 oz (1.1 kg). Perfect. 0, May 14, 2014

    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 "Photographer" (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.

    Best bang for buck 21mm "M" mount lens

    A 21 mm on a full frame camera would be considered an ultra-wide lens, if you are using it on a micro four thirds body, this would be effectively a 42mm FOV.If you google a little bit, you will find that this is one of the cheapest 21mm M mount lenses out there. The Zeiss and Leica are about 3-4 times the price. You would expect that this lens would be inferior to them in quality but that is not the case at all. In fact, I would argue that this is "better" (gasp) than the Leica counterpart.I use it both on my with an adapter, or on my ... 5/5 A. Hasija (NY) - See all my reviews, February 21, 2013

    WHAT FUN!

    I love this little guy. OK sure it doesn't deliver the same mind-blowing image as the , but it is a tiny fraction of the size and weight of that lens, not to mention costing less than 1/4 the price.Wow, this lens is WICKED sharp in the center of the frame. I mean, it will blow your mind, man! Sure, image quality drops off toward the corners and the vignetting is pretty bad at f/4, but who cares? It's not made for low-light shooting anyway. If you're shooting landscape, stop it down to f/8, use the hyperfocal range printed on the lens and everything between 3 ft and infinity will be in focus. Just shoot away.Option: shoot it on a NEX camera for a 32mm equivalent focal length which is a nice "street" length.

    This little gem represents a bridge connecting today's technology and good-old craftsmanship. Every action is silky smooth, with refreshing feel of quality and precision - it feels like fine swiss-made mechanical Watch (and it is not much bigger!). Using this lens reminded me how much fun could be using a well-engineered, excellently executed and super-sharp manual focus lens. Also, built-in CPU provides communication with your latest DSLR on-board computer, giving you access to all-auto exposure and providing you with focus confirmation in the viewfinder. This is a very sharp lens, even wide-open at f2 - maybe sharper than Nikon's own sharp prime lenses ( I compared Ultron to my 50mm F1.4 Nikkor - Ultron was sharper, especially from f2 to f8). I feel that resolution of 16.2 MP sensor in my new D7000 (DX format)is not enough to utilize optical resolution of this lens to full extend.
