Recommended Posts

After a long waiting Cosina will finally release the new Voigtlander VM lens "ULTRON 35mm F1.7 Vintage Line" in August. Price brass silver 135,000 yen ($1,088), aluminum black 115,000 yen ($927).

Lens configuration 7 group nine, including one aspherical surface. 10 sheets aperture blades. A minimum focusing distance of 0.5m. Filter diameter of 46mm. Maximum diameter Ă— overall length is 53 Ă— 50.9mm. Weight Silver is 330g, black 238g.

Anyone else interested in the new Ultron? Personally I am seriously considering it, as it seems to be a perfect balance between a fast f/stop and relatively small size and weight (black version: 238 g). Even though the Nokton 35 1.2 is a fantastic performer I was always turned off by it's size. Right now I have the Summarit 35mm f/2.5, but there are moments when I do wish it would be a little brighter. Sadly 35LUX FLE is out of my price range for the time beeing.

Not wild about the style of the lens barrel, but the optics should count more. But as I am in love with my Zeiss 35mm/1.4 Distagon ZM, I'll pass on this Voigtlander.

I will keep using my Voigtlander/Cosina 50/1.5 Nokton and 35/1.7 Ultron. The original 50/1.5 Nokton for the Prominent was made for a camera with an internal helical, and an adapter was made to fit this lens on a Leica. The new M-Mount Nokton and Ultron base their design on the old lens in that adapter. It was a "Kludge" 60+ years ago, I guess that is "In Vogue, Retro-Styling" now. I have the original Nokton in Prominent mount, can use it with adapters. Voigtlander (original) made great optics, but kludged them together in cameras. The mechanics of the old Voigtlander lenses and cameras were terrible.

      Hi everyone!
      Voigtländer’s two most recent vintage lenses have been widely available for quite a few months, but I find very few “real life” reviews on line, and none from the usual suspects
      specifically, I am looking for feedback on personal experience/testing with the  Color-Skopar 21mm f/3.5 VM on digital Ms (not curious about other 21mm lenses, nor Sony mount version, nor speculation based on specs sheet, nor inferences from the 35mm Ultron nor general talk about VM lenses).
      Anyone in this forum actually used the lens with a digital M yet? If yes, how did it perform for you (resolution/contrast, potential quirks in corners, distortion, vignetting, rendering in general, focusing reliability, etc) ? Please forgive me if the specific performance topic was already discussed in detail in this forum.
      Or can you point to any (good) output-based  review blog/video (found one  using film M, a couple showing lens rather than discussing performance and plenty of reviews for E-mount version)?
      Or simply pictures shot through the lens (preferably high res downloads)? i have seen the promotional picture samples published at launch, so no need to point there!
      Thanks beforehand!
