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.

    0 5/5 V "Beach Bum" (Harvey Cedars, NJ) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Voigtlander Nokton 40mm f/1.4 Wide Angle Leica M Mount Lens - Black (Accessory) I've used this lens on my Leica MP, M9, and Olympus Pen EP-2. This is a quality built, smooth focusing lens. The tab on the lens gives you a Leica like performance. I bought the multi coated version, not the single coated one. Make sure you know which one you're buying. Flare is well controlled with the MC version. Lens is great for portrait on the Pen, giving you an 80mm reach with the micro 4/3 sensor. MP shooting B&W is really nice with this lens. M9 has some issues with matching up with this lens, but it's doable. Bit of vignetting using this lens on the M9. Otherwise it shoots sharp. This lens is a keeper. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 12, 2010

    0 5/5 wormfarming "David" (London, U.K.) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Voigtlander Nokton 40mm f/1.4 Wide Angle Leica M Mount Lens - Black (Accessory) Bought from Photo Village who gave exceptionally good service and information before the sale, so would not hesitate in recommending them. The Single-Coated version of the lens was bought for use with a Panasonic GH2 so a converter ring is vital to have or to buy. The setting must be changed in the GH2 software to allow the use of this manual lens, and that change was simple but somewhat buried deep down under Custom. It's a beautiful lens and looking forward to many years of enjoying its results. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 3, 2011

    Great all rounder

    I have too many lenses. Zeiss, legacy Leitz, CV, and Russian. Many choices... and yet, this is the lens that usually winds up on my camera. I have the MC version, and filed down the flange (easy - instructions on the web, use a metal nail file) so that it brings up the 35mm frame lines on my M9. Fits those lines better than any of my 35s. It is amazingly sharp, even wide open, and only improves as its stopped down. A terrific, small lens for the street -- and, yet shoots great portraits and landscapes. I find it a perfect focal length. There is some barrel distortion and CA when wide open -- but both are easily correctable in PP (I use LR4). I rarely bother, even shooting architecture - you really have to look for it to see it. If you buy it new, you might find the focus stiff. My lens was very stiff and took about a month to work in, playing with it every day. Now, it's lovely. I've read complaints of focus shift -- but I've experienced none whatsoever. Build quality is excellent... 5/5 friedeye - See all my reviews This review is from: Voigtlander Nokton 40mm f/1.4 Wide Angle Leica M Mount Lens - Black (Accessory) I have too many lenses.

    The best 35mm 1.4 for the money.

    The Voigtlander Nokton 35mm 1.4 is the most interesting budget alternative to the famous Leica 35mm LUX, for a little more than 10% of the price, you probably get something like 90% of the performance. Considering what you pay for this lens, there is simply no interesting alternative. You can make life simple and skip to the bottom line, or you can read the details below.Please, don't think of this as a inexpensive lens. ALL 1.4 lenses are in a rarefied territory of exotic ultra fast lenses.Lets talk about what you get and what you do not get for the money in the Voigtlander 35mm 1.4 lens.The defining character of this lens is "FAST". This is a 1.4 lens, you can shoot this lens handheld in dark bars. As far as I am concerned, the number one reason to purchase a 1.4 lens is photographing after sunset, also known as "available darkness" photography. The number two reason is environmental portraits with incredible shallow focus on the subject and a... 4/5 Bo Lorentzen "Photographer" (Los Angeles) - See all my reviews, December 26, 2009

    Excellent lens

    I use this lens on my NEX-5. It's a wonderfully small combination. Mechanical construction is really good. Everything operates very smoothly. As other reviewers have said, this lens is not razor sharp wide open but ask yourself the question: does any other lens give you f1.4 with good performance in this small size at this price point? All the other better 35mm f1.4 primes are either more expensive (a Leica summilux costs a few grands) or bigger in size (SLR lenses) that makes the NEX look like a monster. I'm very pleased with this lens' performance wide open so far although I have to say you do not get the full 1 stop from f2 to f1.4. It's more like 0.7 stop (I measured it). Field curvature is also an issue although I think you won't be concerned too much with corner performance at large apertures. The f1.4 aperture, good high ISO of the NEX (3200 ISO is very good and 6400 usable) makes it possible to shoot in very very low light. the NEX also has another trick up its sleeve called... 5/5 M.

    0 4/5 KLKF "KLKF" (Northern CA, Bay Area) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: EzFoto 52mm Tilted Vented Metal Lens Hood Shade for Leica, Contax Zeiss, Voigtlander Lens (Electronics) Decided to add this hood to my lens even if it does defeat the purpose of it being a "pancake". Nevertheless, it does it's job as far as shading any direct sunlight into the glass. It's built well, has a nice satin black finish...but if you're a perfectionist with how things line up, you may not like it once it's screwed into place. I'm guessing this is specific to the use on the given lens of your choice, but on the Canon 40mm Pancake, the cut out slots don't line up symmetrically after it's confidently seated. It was kind of a bummer at first, but I got over it quickly. So, with that said, you may want to look into the other 52mm "straight" lens hood if the latter disturbs you.Oh, and BTW...you may want to pick up a center pinch style lens cap if you still want to keep the hood in place along with a cap. It's a pain to place and remove the original outer clasp style. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 10, 2013

    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.

    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.
