I bought the Voigtlander 40mm F1.2 in May 2018 and ever since it has been my most used lens. I took nearly 50% of my 3 star rated pictures in 2019 with it, shot two weddings with it and took it with me on all my holidays.
In this new series we will offer you a less technical and more have a look at lenses we like a lot in some more specific scenarios.
You can find all the images shown here in 4k at flickr where you can enjoy them with their high quality viewer.
Before we really begin 2020 on the blog I would like to take some time to reflect the last year, offer my thanks to the many people who made the blog what it is and write a few words on where I think we are headed.
Personally I finalized my education and started into my first real job which brought with it moving to a place with much better access to nature so I spend more time in nature and took more images which really improves quality of life for me. I also found and a little more time for the blog but most of the content came from the team and I don’t expect that to change.
I am really grateful for having the team I have. I think it is rare that one starts a project and is then joined by a few like minded people who are driven by the same passion and who bring the project forward with so little friction and good spirit. When I have my focus elsewhere and not on this hobby project I can be sure that the blog is in good hands so it never feels like a liability to me. Thanks guys!
The Voigtlander 50mm F2 APO-Lanthar has been highly anticipated because of the reputation built by its APO-cousins the mighty 2/65 macro and 2.5/110 Macro. So can the much compact 2/50 APO match or even surpass those lenses performance?
You can find most images in this review in full resolution on flickr where you can also browse them in high quality.
