August 14, 2018 Voigtländer Macro Apo-Lanthar 65mm f/2 Review

For many photographers Voigtländer is an unknown entity, but it is actually the oldest name in cameras, dating back to 1756 when it was founded by Johan Christoph Voigtländer in Vienna, Austria.

July 10, 2018 Voigtländer 65mm f/2 APO-Lanthar Macro Galleries

From the moment I added Sony full frame bodies to my own personal kit, I immediately became interested in the Voigtländer 65mm f/2 APO-Lanthar Macro lens for two reasons.  Both of these reasons are Zeiss-inspired.  The first is that I’ve always been tempted by the Zeiss 50mm f/2 Makro-Planar in both its  [Read more...]

May 22, 2017 Voigtländer Ultron 40mm f/2 SL-II Review

March 26, 2016 Voigtländer Color Skopar 20mm f/3.5 SL II Image Gallery

Tiny but Wide The Voigtländer Color Skopar 20mm f/3.5 SL II is a unique lens.  It is a “pancake” (very compact) lens, yet has a very wide focal length of 20mm.  I’ve really enjoyed having such a wide focal length in such a compact package.  It doesn’t set any resolution records, but it is [Read more...]
