Voigtländer Classic Collection Nokton 35mm 1.4

Recommended Posts

Hallo Leute,

nachdem ich mir manchmal denke, das man nur einmal lebt, muss jetzt eine M240er her. Aus meiner Sicht gerade preislich ein guter Einstieg in das M System. Gesagt getan. Meine Traumlinse, das Leica Summilux-M 24mm 1.4 ASPH ist mir aber einfach zu teuer - und zu schwer.

Ich wusste, wenn es mal eine M wird, dann ist das Voigtländer Classic Collection Nokton 35mm 1.4 auf jeden Fall meine engere Wahl.

Meine Frage: Auf was sollte man achten? Es gibt auch SC und MC, und warum gibt es diese kaum gebraucht, oder bin ich blind?

Danke schon mal.

 

Euch allen schon mal eine gute Zeit. Möge das Jahr 2021 besser werden als dieses!

Ich habe zu diesem Objektiv einen kleinen Blogartikel verfaßt. Kein Testbericht, aber vielleicht hilft er Dir bei der Entscheidungsfindung

Interessant. Danke.
Woran erkennt man denn die Version 1 und 2? Und wann ist SC böse, und wann MC dein Freund?

Ja, klar ...

Zwei verschiedene Versionen – SC und MC

Die Bildcharakteristik bei Offenblende mit unserem typischen schönen und weichen Bokeh bleibt selbstverständlich erhalten, ebenso natürlich die Wahl zwischen zwei verschiedenen Vergütungen: Mehrschichtvergütung (M.C.) für eine neutrale Farbwiedergabe und Einschichtvergütung (S.C.) für einen klassisch anmutenden Farbcharakter.

Es war eher eine Frage was das in real ausmacht.

Ich habe das Objektiv in der SC-Variante da ich hauptsächlich mit SW-Film unterwegs bin (klassischere Anmutung, sagt man). Für Streetphotography ist das Objektiv geeignet. Wenn es aber Architektur sein soll … vergessen. Die Linse verzeichnet sehr stark „tonnenförmig“. So scharf wie Leica-Linsen ist es auch nicht.

„It's unsharp by LEICA standards and loaded with barrel distortion.“

Mein Lieblings-35er für die Leica-M ist das Zeiss C-Biogon 2.8/35. Da geht nichts drüber. 😀

Das bei Ken ist wohl die Version 1. Zu kaufen gibt es das neu glaube ich nicht mehr.

 

Verzeichnung und Vignettierung ist für mich kein Problem. Vignettierung rechne ich bei der Leica Q z.B. sowieso immer mit rein. Mir sind die Fotos da irgendwie "zu perfekt".

Was mich wundert. Warum finde ich da kaum gebrauchte? Ist wohl ein gutes Zeichen. Wer es kauft behält es anscheinend.

Have a good time everyone. May 2021 be better than this!

 

I understand the SC was for less contrast when using bw. The MC v1 was arguably nothing spectacular from my own use and had quite a bit of distortion. Its compact handling, build quality, classic rendition (for lack of a better word), and warm saturation of colors are what was appealing. Nice for portraits imho. The MC v2 is improved all round.

If you wanted more of a crisper definition in your photos with microcontrast id suggest to look elsewhere

In contrast the vm ultron 35mm f1.7 asph is better all round and better microcontrast than the 1.4

      Got my first ever Leica M body last year. It's a M2. It came bundled with a Summicron 50mm F2 Collapsible. I'm really enjoying this combo, but I'm a 35mm shooter.
      I've found a Summaron 35mm 3.5 for sale in my country, for a decent price. It's serial number is the following: 1176436.
      However, I know that users have trouble defining their lens models, because they were produced in a large numbers.
      I've checked this one's number on a lot of different sources and foruns, but I failed on identifying it.
      The weird part is that checking through this website: https://reddotcamera.net/leica/serial-number-tool/ and in this page: https://www.l-camera-forum.com/leica-wiki.en/index.php/Summaron_f%3D_3.5_cm_1:3.5
      The information I have is that this lens is identified as a Summicron 50mm f/2, build in the year 1954 and a Summicron 5 cm 1:2 (M), respectively.
      Why is that? Has anyone here ever seen one of these? I wanted this to be the M2 version (to activate the 35mm framelines) but I have no clue what this all means.
      Any guesses are welcome.
      Thanks!

      This awesome 21mm lens with f/1.4 f-stop totally deserves its own thread.

      The popularity of fast wide M lenses among Leica photographers seems to drop as soon as one drifts away from the optical viewfinder lines of the eternal 28mm / 35mm / 50mm trinity. Leica even went as far as to discontinue its entire 24mm M line of lenses at some point in 2020, including the precious Summilux 24.
      Yet for reportage, conventions, events, concerts, wedding receptions and people photography, a fast wide angle is usually priceless. What the Summilux 21 f/1.4 offers over other slower (f/1.8 to f/3.4) lenses from the 21mm scuderia (there are not many for the M, although Voigtlander and TTArtisan offer direct competition with same or very similar f-stop) is the incredible separation of the subject from the background, an amazing feature for a wide angle lens. The 21 lux is of course a Karbe masterpiece, Erwin Puts even said in one of his articles that "If you compare the 1.4/21 with the 0.95/50mm you see comparable quality."

      Please post your images and share your experience with the 21 lux - everything from series VIII/8 filters and other adapted filter solutions to your experience with this light beast in the field and on assignments, preferrably wide open. This is NOT a SEM thread, but a comparison between the two is OK.

      Something I consider to be a glaring omission from Leica's current M-lens line-up is a light, compact, 35mm lens. Or am I missing something? F2.8 would be quite adequate considering the high ISOs available on the M10. The target market would be those for whom minimum size and weight is a major actor, plus those seeking a lower cost entry into the world of Leica M.
      As it is, Voigtlander offer just such a lens, though the reviews are mixed.
      I assume such a lens would be called an Elmarit, as the code seems to be
      Elmar -f4.0
      Elmarit f2.8
      -chron f2.0
      -lux f1.4 or faster.
      Any comments as to when such a beast might become available, or should I just go and buy the Voigtlander?

      Hi there,
      I purchased the Voigtlander 35mm f2 Ultron about 6 months ago at my local Leica store. I have a problem regarding the focus ring; it's a bit loose in a way where I can move the focus ring horizontally and vertically (about a mm or so). Its not a big movement or anything but I can feel the loose when I'm trying to accurately focus an image. I've never seen anyone mentioning this problem from this lens., or any Voigtlander lens in this matter. I wonder if any user had such an issue or if I'm getting crazy about small stuff.
      Thanks in advance for the answers,
      Renaud
