Voigtlander 35 mm F1.2 Nokton Aspherical
Emerging as a landmark in the realm of photography, the NOKTON 35mm F1.2 Aspherical III VM is Voigtlander's answer to photographers seeking a fusion of compactness and high performance. This updated lens retains the exceptional optical prowess of its predecessors while redefining the boundaries of size and weight.
Design Evolution: From Nokton II to Nokton III
The journey from the NOKTON 35mm F1.2 Aspherical II to its latest version has been marked by groundbreaking improvements. Harnessing cutting-edge optical technologies and employing an innovative design approach, Voigtlander achieved a significant reduction in both lens size and weight without compromising on performance.
Compared to its immediate predecessor, the new NOKTON is approximately 20% shorter, measuring a sleek 50.5mm. Additionally, it's about 30% lighter, weighing in at just 332g. This evolution isn't just notable within the Voigtlander lineage. When juxtaposed with other interchangeable lenses of identical specifications for mirrorless cameras, the NOKTON stands out, being less than half the length and a mere third of the weight.
A Balance of Performance and Usability
Modern lenses, in their quest for perfection, often end up being bulky due to multiple elements. This can compromise their utility in real-world scenarios. The Voigtlander VM series, however, finds the sweet spot between optical performance and maneuverability, ensuring photographers don't have to make a choice between the two. The NOKTON 35mm F1.2 Aspherical III VM, with its renewed engineering, exemplifies this philosophy to its fullest.
In conclusion, the Voigtlander 35 mm F1.2 Nokton Aspherical III VM lens embodies a new era of photographic excellence, effortlessly merging compactness, performance, and usability. For photographers, both amateurs and professionals, this lens promises an unmatched experience in capturing the world's moments.
