|onsplekkie#45644 date: Feb-11-2021|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Voigtlander 5.6/12 LTM|
Zeiss Loxia 2.8/21
|price paid:||450 euro secondhand|
|positive:||Solid build; small(ish), feels and handles great|
Colours this lens gives match other Voigtlander lenses realy well
|negative:||Bit awkward to use filters on this lens because of non-removable hood.|
|comment:||My Voigtlander 5.6/12 LTM just didn't work as well on my A7iii compaired to my A7s. So, looking for a small UWA lens that matches this body I did not have to look far to find another great Voigtlander lens. |
I love the images it gives me for landscape or streetphotography. Beware for putting people in close range of the lens or to much into the corners of the frame for unnatural looking distortion.
I find the colours very nice and sharpness good, although extreme corners lack a bit behind (could be copy variation?).
Put aperture on f/8, focus on/near infinity, ISO setting auto, forget about it & just enjoy shooting (-;
