It's now my everyday lens.

If I was forced at gunpoint to pick just one lens from my collection and to superglue it onto my Nikon body, this would be the one. Sure, it's manual focus -- but for someone who grew up on manual focus film cameras, it doesn't bug me one bit. I have gotten stunningly sharp photos with this lens. The closest Nikkor I have to this lens, the 35 mm Nikkor f/1.8, is cheaper and has auto-focus, but I still find that this Voigtlander lens is my go-to. My ONLY nitpick -- and this applies to both Voiglander SL lenses I own - is that the caps don't tightly grip the lens barrel. It is VERY easy to lose a cap. My solution was to go out and buy a generic 52mm cap.

I love it

By

from US  -  Casual Photographer

I was looking for a lens to complement my 50 mm. I was craving for a manual focus lens and not made in China. It is small, lightweight, very low profile, and cute. Ideal for travel and street photography. There is vignetting wide open and mild CA at the borders at f/11 but can be fixed post processing. Center is sharp at f/4 to f/8. The lens' sweet spot is f/8.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Does this lens meter with Nikon F80/N80 SLR camera? Is this AI-S or AI-P?
JAMES ALLAN V  It's AI-P.
Shopper  So it's a AI-P lens. Does it mean that this lens is compatible with Nikon F80/N80 SLR camera? This camera doesn't meter with AI-S mount Nikon lenses.
Andrew R  Exposure on the F80/N80 would likely be stop down manual. Lens will mount, however autoexposure functions will not be available. I believe that the F100, F4s, F5, and the F6 will offer autoexposure and metering with AI/s and AI/p manual lenses.
