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?

Hi,

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.

You may want to check these articles and also direct CV 35mm F2 vs XF 35mm F1.4 comparison and make your opinion based on pictures. I used to shoot with color-skopar 35mm F2.5 as well, it's awesome tiny lens and its performance is very close to CV 35mm F2.

    • It is easy to think a certain camera, like X-T4, has lot of problems when reading a forum like this on the X-T4. I'm sure there are many happy X-T4 owners out there but it is a fact that it is several people now including me that has real strange problems with this camera. Maybe it is related to later production units since mine is brand new? It is not uncommon when a product is very popular (and I believe this X-T4 is) that as demand rise the quality may go down. I do not say that is a fact i
    • I disagree that it wouldn't be significant.  I think the flange distance is the distance that the extension tube modifies, not the focal length.
    • @mawz, why would the FD lenses not be versatile?  I've seen them [and the older FL] adapted all the time.  I do understand the impulse to go with a mount that makes focus and possibly aperture easier (EF), however... but that may be contrary to @thl70's original desire to experiment with vintage manual lenses. - Honestly Curious
    • Just noticed I posted this to wrong forum, should have been for the X-T3 forum. I apologize for the mistake. I bought X-T3 for filmmaking. I adore the visual quality, the 10 bit codec and Fuji optics but there are real problems for me with the implementation with the focus functions in ‘Movie Mode’ as detailed below. I need a compact camera for verité style documentary shooting and need to be able to switch between getting an quick “instantaneous” focus and manual focus operation to finesse
