Voightlander 35mm as an alternative to the fuji 35mm

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

I was thinking about getting the fuji 35mm f1.4 to my xpro2 but had this crazy idea of getting the voightlander color skopar 35mm and an adapter instead.

I usually  shoot with vintage lenses so the AF is not a deal breaker, I'm overall worried about the sharpness, colours and contrast of the lens, the small size of the voightlander is also a point in favour of that lens...

What are your thoughts about this?

besides an X-H1 with the 23mm f/1,4, I shoot with a Voigtländer 21mm f/3.5 Color Skopar Asph and a 40mm f/1.2 Nokton Asph both on Sony A7iii.

I also shoot with Leica M6 and M9 with native 28mm and 50mm Summicron glass.

In the past, with a Sony A7ii, I have used Zeiss 21mm f/4.0 Loxia and 35mm f/2.0 Loxia and of these two lenses eventually I regret the 21mm.

After this premise, I can say that the Voigtländer lenses are very close to the Leica and Zeiss quality and I really appreciate the result, you have to be really finicky to see a big difference.

Vs the Fujinon 23 f/1.4 I prefer the rendition of Voigtländer lenses and therefore I am planning to sell it and buy the 35mm f/2.0 Ultron.

Just to get an idea you can pick-up those photos taken with Voigtländer lenses on my two Flickr acts : srsatvs and Svend RS.

    • X100f stuck in A and P mode!  I just got my x100f back from servicing and even when I move the aperture ring and shutter dial away from A - it is still in A mode- if I move the aperture ring and shutter dial to A- I am in P mode.   I want M mode- I am pulling my hair out. Am I missing some step in settings or is my camera damaged from servicing? 
    • By chance do you have the settings for touch screen focus turned on? If so, then every time you look through the view finder, the focus point will bounce around like you are describing. Make certain it is turned off in the menus. That setting is more intended to be used with the big lcd screen.
    • I have an XT2 and have no issues transferring images from that camera. With the X100V, I'm getting really, REALLY frustrated and tired of not being able to use the app to transfer images.  - I had no problem pairing the devices. - I have opened the Fuji Remote app and have Fujifilm-x100V-18B8 visible with a flashing bluetooth icon and a solid wifi icon. - The camera says: iPhone-7459. Start Up Fujifilm app for digital camera and select the function Fujifilm-x100v-18B8.  - When I selec
    • I acquired an X100V this week and have the same issue as that described by Joe Zhou. Compared to my XT3, its extremely loud. Compared to the Canons I have used it is very noticesble and a bit off-putting. Are such noises the norm with this camera?
