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.

    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. F/8 and be there, set it and forget... 4/5 David Siegfried (Chicago, IL United States) - See all my reviews, August 1, 2013

    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.

    5/5 LDinVA - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Voigtlander 15/4.5 III Leica M Aspherical Super Wide Heliar (Electronics) Great little lens. Solidly built and smooth to operate. Using it on a Sony A7Rii with VM-E Close Focus Adapter and so far the results are super!, November 16, 2015

    Affordable, distortion-free, sharp, and compact, but prone to chromatic aberrations.

    This lens is a very good lens for both the Leica M mount cameras and full frame mirrorless cameras (Sony alpha 7 series). The level of distortion is remarkably low for a super-wide lens. The sharpness is generally decent, but on certain digital sensors (Sony a7r, for instance) the corners of the images may be slightly "smeared out" due to coma. The main weakness of this lens are strong lateral chromatic aberrations that manifest in green-magenta fringes around areas of high contrast near the edges. There is also strong vignetting.Unlike versions I and II, though, there is no colour shifting, as this lens has been optimized for digital sensors. Like other Voigtlaender lenses, the super wide Heliar has excellent metal construction. As it has little or no distortion, it is particularly suitable for architectural photography.The only comparable for Leica M mount are the $4600 Zeiss Distagon ZM 15mm f/2.8 lens and maybe the $2800 Leica Super Elmar M 18mm... 4/5 Daniel Lu - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Five stars all the way for the little Voigtlander.

    5/5 Kon Peki (Boston, MA USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Voigtlander 15/4.5 III Leica M Aspherical Super Wide Heliar (Electronics) Five stars all the way. My previous main ultrawide prime for Leica M was the Zeiss ZM 18mm Distagon. Unfortunately that lens wasn't outstanding when adapted to Sony E-Mount, so I sold it and looked for alternatives.This little Voigtlander is extremely sharp all the way to the corners on both Leica and Sony cameras. I've used it on an M240 and continue to use it on a Sony A7RII. It is up to the task of the 42MP sensor, and I haven't noticed any color fringing. There are some comparisons posted at TalkEmount showing that this little guy clearly outperforms the Sony 16-35mm zoom at 16mm.It's well made, has low distortion, is reasonably priced, and takes up little room in the camera bag. Five stars all the way. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 8, 2016

    The only lens that could possibly replace my Summicron

    I've had this lens for a few months now and it has supplanted my Summicron 50mm as the everyday lens that stays solidly attached to my Leica M9. That's no small feat, considering the legendary quality of the Summicron. I'm a professional photojournalist and reporter who travels extensively, and I can attest to the ruggedness and solid quality of the Voigtlander Nokton. The extra half-stop difference in speed is critical for indoor and low-light situations. I considered a Summilux but saved thousands by choosing the Nokton. One difference that should be noted is that the Voigtlander has a different look in the images it produces - a bit more clinical, not quite as warm, and lacking that painterly Leica glow. I still keep the Summicron in my camera bag if I want that look. Two pieces of advice: shoot this beautiful lens wide open (f/1.5) to get the maximum "pop" that separates the focused subject and the foreground/background; and go for the silver version instead of the black... 5/5 Mark Angeles (NEW YORK, NEW YORK, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Beautifully crafted old world design with modern day optics deserves serious consideration.

    I am a Sony A7R shooter and was considering either this lens or the Zeiss FE55mm f1.8. Studied all the published material online and took a gamble on the Nokton. I already had the CZ35mm f2.8 so was willing to experiment with the Nokton manual focus using a Novoflex adapter.Why would I give this lens 5 stars? Again, my method of valuation is whether I would buy this lens again having used it for several months. The answer is yes. It is not a cheap lens at this price. Even more than the CZ55mm. However, it is extremely well made feeling like the old glass from the 50s. Well finished and the feel of this lens in the hand makes it a joy to use.The image quality from this lens is very good. As other had mentioned. Not quite to Leica Summilux standard but extremely close. I dare say looking at the images from both lenses side by side, almost everyone will have a difficulty finding the difference. It is only discernable in the bokeh. The one joy this lens will give... 5/5 H. TAN - See all my reviews, June 24, 2014

    Amazing lens

    5/5 Roger - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.5 Aspherical Standard Manual Focus Lens - Silver (Electronics) This lens is pretty amazing to use. Aperture ring is a little too easy to turn in my opinion but it does have a slight notch so you know you are hitting each of the stop. Focus ring is smooth though a little tight to start with but it is good especially at 1.5 to make sure I am getting that critical focus. Using this with A7 and got some very amazing picture in sharpness and the color renders great in its own way. Bought the chrome because of its material and based on many review I read but I think the black one would be good since it would be lighter in weight.Getting my film camera soon and I can't wait to try it out soon.
