Voigtlander 20mm f/3.5 SL-II for Canon


The widest of the Voigtlander for Canon mount lenses, the 20mm Skopar is a manual focus lens that has electronics to allow the camera to set auto exposure and white balance.

This is an amazingly small but very sharp lens that’s reasonable competition to the Zeiss ZE 18mm f/3.5 and Zeiss ZE 21mm f/2.8 lenses from a sharpness standpoint. It’s reasonably priced, too, and comes in a very small package that makes a great walkaround.

Another small, reasonably priced Voigtlander prime lens. Unfortunately for this little lens, it sits right in the territory owned by the Zeiss ZE 21mm f/2.8 and Canon 24mm f/1.4L II primes, two of the best lenses made. It can’t compete with those on aperture, of course, but it is a tiny little lens which is sometimes very important. Its got some wide-open distortion and is best shot at f/5.6 or f/8 where it performs very well in the center. You’re never going to get sharp corners and edges, especially on a full-frame camera. The main advantage to this lens is its small size.
