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.

    • It all depends on what you want and need, a cheap option with TTL is the Nissin i-40 as mentioned above if you use manual flash (which I would recommend) Youngnuo is a very affordable option also offering remote triggers for off camera use.  I have the nissin i-40 whish is easy to use and offers TTL and a couple of Youngnuo Flashes with remote triggers.

    • (From an older inquiry I responded to here) I bought the pair listed below. Both are made by Godox but are rebranded house brands from Adorama. B&H also has Godox rebranded house brands though I don’t know their name for it. The reason I went with Godox is they are inexpensive and rated very high on multiple websites.  I first bought the pair as Godox branded but the warranty was a joke. The flash and off camera support both had a card insert explainin
