    The Golden Standard of 35mm Lenses

    The 35mm focal length has been the gold standard for rangefinder cameras, owing to its versatility and perspective. In their pursuit of crafting the ultimate 35mm lens, Voigtlander offers an impressive array of five different 35mm VM lenses. The NOKTON Vintage Line 35mm F1.5 Aspherical emerges as the embodiment of these efforts, combining the best features in a harmonious blend.

This lends the lens a compact portability, perfect for photographers on the move. Housed within a modern classic design, the lens employs a 6-group, 9-element optical system, enhanced by two double-sided aspheric lenses. This setup ensures peerless optical performance across all aperture ranges.
