Voigtlander Nokton 58mm f/1.4 SL II for Nikon

Available Today

The Voigtlander Nokton is a revision of a classic lens (the Voigtlander Topcor) which was made in very limited quantities in 2003. Cosina bought the design and remade the lens in a Nikon mount complete with electronics that allows it to communicate with the camera’s autometering system. The lens is manual focus, of course, but metering is handled by the camera in a similar way to the Zeiss ZF lenses.

The Nokton provides really superb resolution in the center even wide open, and in the edges and corners by f/2.0. At f/5.6 its sharp enough that it exceeds most reviewers ability to measure—-one of the few lenses that can do so. Basically, the lens provides the image quality of Zeiss or Nikon primes costing much more.

Another nice Voigtlander manual focus prime. Unlike the 40mm, this one isn’t particularly small (about like the Nikon 50mm f/1.4). It’s a bit soft in the edges wide open and I really think it is f/2.8 before its sharp across the frame. I don’t know that I like it quite as much as the Leica 50 f/1.4, but I think its close enough to make that arguable, and the Voigtlander is less expensive.
