Product Description

The newest offering from Voigtlander is truly something: the 35mm f/1.4 Nokton. Designed similarly to the 40mm f/1.4 Nokton, this is tiny, fast, and affordable. Despite this amazing set of attributes, Voigtlander did not skimp on the production quality: tests have shown this lens to be remarkably sharp even at its wide-open aperture. This is the multi-coated version (basically this means if you shoot color you can expect highly saturated colors, and if you shoot b/w you can expect high contrast).

By Bo Lorentzen on December 26, 2009
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 delightfully blurred background. Maybe there is a third reason, 35mm is one of the classical rangefinder lenses, popular for street photography.

The Nokton 35mm 1.4 does "wide open" excellently, it is a fantastic lens for wide open photography, with a nice out of focus look.

There is no such thing as a "free lunch", you can say that about this lens also. While the Nokton 35mm 1.4 excels at its main job, photographing wide open, the lens does have a small problem, it is one of those you need to know about, once you know and understand it is not a problem. The lens have a pretty dramatic focus shift when stopped down to 2.0 and 4.0 - what does that really mean.? simply, imagine you photograph a portrait at about 3 feet, if you photograph at f. 1.

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 the "handheld twilight mode" that takes six photos and then stack and align them to give you a pretty noise free photo (even at 6400ISO) that would not have been possible if you only take 1 photo the traditional way. I've been astounded many times how clean photos I can get in very dark conditions. The small form factor of this lens also helps in blending in with the environment instead of intimidating people with a big DSLR.
The NEX and CV 35 1.4 make for a small but winning combination for low light shooting on a budget. If you don't have the money to shell out for a Leica summilux but still want a small but very fast lens this is the one to get. Don't let the bashing of this lens from Leica owners discourage you.

This is a Leica M Mount lens and I don't have a genuine Leica 35mm lens to compare it to, only a 50mm Summicron. The Leica equivalent, the 35mm f/1.4 ASPH Summilux-M, costs ten times what I paid for this lens on the used market.

I'm not shooting this on a Leica camera either, but rather on two of Sony's best E-mount cameras, the Sony NEX-7 and the Sony VG900, which is a full frame camcorder but also shoots 24mp still images. The notable thing about the VG900 is that although the video has some image quality issues (see my review for details), in camera mode it shoots amazing full frame RAW or JPEG images and is the only full frame digital camera besides Leica I am aware of that can shoot Leica M Mount lenses in all their full frame glory. (A dedicated mirrorless full frame E Mount stills camera can't be far off... but I digress.)

On the NEX-7 this lens is approximately equivalent to a 53mm f/2 lens on full-frame, a "normal" lens. While it doesn't have the full character of a Leica Summicron shot in full-frame, the image quality wide open compares favorably with for example a Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens shot on a Canon 5D. Considering that the Canon lens is about twice the size, that's a pretty remarkable feat. At f/1.4 it is only slightly soft in the center of the frame when zoomed in fully, and exhibits some halo artifacts when you get toward the edges of the frame, but distortion and vignetting are kept to a minimum due to the crop factor of the NEX. The NEX-7 focus assist features make pinpoint manual focusing a relative breeze, as long as your subjects are fairly stationary. This would not be the lens for photographing sports or active children.
