The Voigtlander VM 21mm 3.5 Color-Skopar is Cosina’s latest slower 21mm lens. Phillip already reviewed the E-mount version, now I am having a look at the M-mount version, also to find out, whether there are actually optical differences between the two versions. Lens is being tested on 42mp Sony A7rII and 24mp Leica M10
Leica M10. The Camera. Photography reduced to its essentials. This is what Leica says about this camera. If you care what I think of it: keep on reading.
Update: after one year with the Leica M10 I decided to revisit this article and add further notes where I found they may be helpful.
For many people owning a Leica camera is a dream. But why is that so? Is it simply the high price tag, the Bauhaus look or the huge “Made in Germany” writing, not hidden on a sticker at the bottom of the camera, but easily visible on the back?
It surely isn’t image quality or ease of use. You get more of both, elsewhere, for less. This is why Leica cameras are often perceived as vain men’s luxury items, that happen to be able to take photos from time to time.
The Voigtlander 110mm F2.5 is among the very best E-mount lenses you can buy. It has been part of Phillips standard kit for 18 months and David has used his a lot as well. In this review we evaluate it in-depth and also share our experience.
You can find many of the images shown in this review in full resolution in this album.
While Cosina has updated the Voigtlander 15mm 4.5 to a 3rd generation (which even comes as native E-mount lens), the second version still cannot be beaten in terms of size.
Is this lens still a good choice on a digital camera or should you stick to the bigger and more expensive Mk. III version? Lens is being tested on 42mp Sony A7rII and 24mp Leica M10
