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.

    Voigtlander

    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

    0 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 (Accessory) 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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 21, 2013

    Voigtlander

    Highly recommended f/0.95 manual operation lens

    This is a FAST lens, which allows shooting at ISO 200 where an f/2.8 lens would require ISO 1600. It performs quite well even wide open, at f/1.4 and f/2 it becomes very sharp, and reaches peak sharpness by f/4. This lens is completely manual (focus, aperture, no data communicated to the camera). In the past, I had trouble with optical viewfinders for manual focusing; but with electronic viewfinders, image magnification, and focus peaking tools available on better micro-4/3 cameras, it became easy to achieve critical focus exactly where I wanted it. Sure, there is a technique to learn, and the process isn't as fast as AF, but it really works and many photographers enjoy this kind of control and involvement in creating exactly the images they want. Speaking of images: This is an excellent portrait lens capable of blurring backgrounds just like my 85/1.8 full frame DSLR lens. While not a true macro lens, it focuses very close; combined with wide apertures this delivers very nice... 5/5 Linux Administrator - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Such lenses are reason enough to use the Micro 4/3 format

    The Voigtlander 42.5mm F/0.95 was a lens that I had anticipated with a childlike eagerness.I had previous experience with the 25mm Voigtlander, but this version, I would verture to say is even better.Right away, I tested the F0.95 performance -- sharper than my 25mm version, and well sharp for F/0.95 -- I was actually impressed. Focusing at this aperture is a bit challenging, especially at closer ranges within the 1 meter range. At medium distances, the F0.95 setting yields pleasing subject isolation. Purple fringing is prominent is certain situations, with whites, bright backgrounds, etc. Although, that's mainly shooting during the mid day, when the sun is high and bright, so you wouldn't be necessarily shooting at that aperture anyhow -- at night, in darker setting these aberrations are less present & pronounced.There is some 'glow' at F0.95 -- more glow I believe is exhibited at closer subject to lens distances. I many cases however, this 'glow'... 5/5 Budajoe69 (LA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Extremely bright and fast 42.5mm f/0.95 lens produces a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 85mm when used on a Micro Four Thirds digital camera
    Selective Aperture Control System produces a stepless, de-clicked aperture ring, which provides silent and smooth exposure adjustment that is well-suited for video application
    Fully manual focus and exposure lens features an all-metal lens barrel and a 10-blade diaphragm
    One Super High Refractive element and one aspherical element work to produce a high image quality with immense clarity, contrast and sharpness with a marked reduction in chromatic aberrations and color fringing

    Voigtlander

    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

    Appealing lens -- great price

    0 4/5 Michael A. Thomas (CO USA) - See all my reviews, April 22, 2010

    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.
