Pros: Unique lens, "creaminess", compact vintage charm, high quality materials.

Cons: Nesuno.

Opinion: As a focal lover (I also have the batis 40 mm f.2) I can only say that this lens is sensational, the images have a unique "pellicolosa" rendering. You can feel the quality of the materials and the solidity... Very fluid ghiera, under F2 really begins the magic, try to believe. Good Voigtlander for this gem.

Pros: Overall yield, compactness, construction and materials, vintage charm on a modern-performance lens.

Cons: Bokeh edits on the light points already from f/1.4, ta remains sharp but in cases where you need to extend the pdc and do not like polygon light points could be a problem.

Opinion: My copy is Attack M (Leica) chosen on purpose to be used on Techart Pro in Autofocus mode. In this regard I point out that the thread for filters is 52mm and not 58mm as indicated in the card (I do not know if there are differences in diameter between the E-mount and Leica versions). Taken used at just over half of its price I can only confirm what has already been said in previous reviews that to be honest have helped me a lot in the choice of this lens. Having a super bright in your hands is always a satisfying experience, it's the kind of glass that whispers constantly in your ear: what you won't be able to get from me, it's just your fault. In fact, and as mentioned, the first thing you notice when you play with this lens is that it opens 2 worlds. The world of fantasy under F/2.0 while over is already exploitable from 5.6 for details and landscape. It is a 40mm that moves one step back and one forward covers the need of normal and that of the mild wide angle. I've never used this focal in my life, it's perfect. At full opening it has a very nice bokeh, quite similar to the other 1.2 that I own (Revuenon 55mm 1.2 not of Tomioka derivation) is pleasant, unfortunately with side light points that often tend slightly to become almond but much less than the Revue mentioned. Closing already at 1.4 the light points begin to produce angularity on the globes, this aspect is what I appreciated the least but it must be said that the lost roundness, depending on the distance from the light points, returns closing on the next diaphragms, in the first tests already done at F4 and 5.6. This aspect for some, I imagine of some importance, is easily manageable with the mirrorless being able to immediately see in the viewfinder how the bokeh is going to compose according to the diaphragm set. On the other, from F/8 produces starry on fairy lights. It is a lens that I consider very solving, at full openness from what you read around, beats the 35mm. On the 24 mpix of the A7III probably does not express itself at all, I notice some noticeable differences with the results obtained by those who mount this glass on the R veronions of Sony but let's talk about trifles. With regard to the barrel and construction in general, you would spend minutes and minutes using it improperly. Great piece!

Pros: Unique lens. Sharpness, colors, detachment, construction, compactness, price quality, multifacetedness.

Cons: Some variables in the E mount specimens.

Opinion: I come from years of Canon with 35L and 50 1.2 deputies to magic in comparable focal points, I have gone from 50 art and other valuable manuals. This wipes everyone out. Superb sharpness at 1.2 in the center, rendered on all the excellent diaphragm from 2.8 onwards. Basically you have a lens that at 1.2 or 1.4 has the MAGIC button but not clouded like some of its peers (nokton 1.1, canon 1.2 , nocti 1.1), but ringing. Soft fire passages with a modern rendering on colors and sharpness with small defects released specifically to inactivate the tired user of perfect lenses such as the various ART or OTUS. There is and is remarkable the phenomenon of the annihilation of the central blurring at 1.2 and also 1.4. means that despite being 40mm, at 1.2 if there is a wall or detail behind the subject even just half a meter, at the end the wall seems further away. I could choose between version E or with mount Vm... I chose the Leica version, probably a lower wire of the E but only at the edges for the different stack. but it suffers from great variability among the specimens and is considerably larger and heavier. I use it with the techart pro with latest firmware on sony a7r3.. Perfect AF in afc.... with af... I CAN'T GET IT OFF. here some sample: https://www.juzaphoto.com/topic2.php?l=it&t=3196774 https://www.juzaphoto.com/topic2.php?l=it&t=3186467 I'm honest, if you don't want to get sick so much that you can't go back with huge glass and flat... don't look! Ps.. 40mm is ideal to trade off between 35 and 50. you do everything and really, probably with this glass you could only use a lens 90% of the time.

Pros: Lofty lens, black and white will make you cry, absent AC pushy, sharpness to f 1.2 satisfactory

Cons: Leica-M best attack version even if erroneously they are declared equal

Opinion: I purchased the Leica-M version, and use it on Sony via TechArt Pro. What about, the lens is magical. On the other hand it is a Zeiss with the inscription Voigtlander, what is expected? The construction is equal to a Leica ASPH, so you make the considerations. Very comfortable the aperture ring on the front, so as to greatly facilitate the modification. A habit that I hope also take other manufacturers of manual lenses. At the level of size is very small, just taken in hand and made the first shots, I was pretty much devastated. Voigtlander's net is affirmed as market leader. Ok, Sigma produces super-sharp lenses with cremosissimi bokeh, but the weight? Voigtlander sacrifices a bit of sharpness, in exchange for an incredible weight and transportability. The only "defect" is the lack of AF, which is widely filled thanks to various adapters, which will soon come out for each ecosystem, able to make it AF exploiting the phase sensing system of mirrorless. On the other hand, the TechArt Pro may well also land on the R and Z systems, giving new shine to the lenses of this brand, little known in an unfair way.

Pros: Super bright, characteristic bokeh, excellent definition even at 1.2, electronic chips that transmit the shooting data, exemplary construction, precision of the ferrules, size and weight content, focal all-rounder.

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: A truly remarkable lens. The yield is very characteristic, in the style of Voigtlander but correct in the most classic optical defects. You immediately notice that it is a lens optimized for Sony. The use is very pleasant and not complicated, the focus manual is not at all a problem with the magnification in the viewfinder. Attached to the Sony is a hoot, it is as big as a 50 approximately 1.8 and carries around almost without realizing it. I can not take it off anymore !!! :)
