Voigtländer Skopar 50 f2.5

Voigtländer Skopar 50 f2.5

The image quality one gets from these quite cheap Voigtländer lenses is remarkable. The price range being a few hundred Euro where I live is relatively affordable, nowhere near the Leica prices and I'm not going to start to go down that road.

The Skopar lenses are small, light and handle very well on the Nex system. One tip, don't go below 35mm on the Nex-7 unless you're using SLR lenses. Problems with colour shifts doesn't happen with those lenses. Nowadays, I'll only use the longer focal length lenses on the Nex-7 because of this issue of having purple edges to the image. It is correctable in post but I really don't want to go and make even more work for myself.

I can recommend the Voigtländer Skopar 50 f2.5 as it has a lovely signature and the images come very close to the Leica look many people are looking for.

Last one of these for now but I'm planning on posting more composites or collages in the future. This is where you see that I've processed the 50mm image a little warmer than 35mm one. I like both and tend to play around with some of these images until I get a look that I like.

If you would like more of these comparison images, please let me know and I'll do what I can to some more composites up.

I've posted these at a higher resolution so you can better see the rendition you get from these lenses.

Voigtländer Lenses I

Voigtländer Lenses I

Something a little different today. I took a little walk with 2 x Sony Nex-5N bodies, one with the Voigtländer 35 f2.5 Skopar attached and the other mounting the Voigtländer 50 f2.5 Skopar. These lenses are really small and compact and are great on the Nex cameras. I just photographed a few buildings and views from the same standpoint with each camera so that I could campare the images against each other. Both lenses performed very well, but I prefer the images from the 35 f2.5. If you look at the image above (showing my favourite building in Frankfurt), you can see the difference between a 35mm and 50mm lens. Both were set at f5.6, which is just about the optimum aperture for theses lenses on the Nex cameras. I just love the rendition I get from these lenses, and I admit to being a Voigtländer fanboy.

Great texture and clarity to these images from the Skopar. Just enjoy the photographs. Not a lot more to say.

Just posting some images from the Skopar. It is really remarkable that this lens is so cheap. If you see it on sale, grab it.

When I want to see what a lens can really do I tend to take the same route and take the same images as with other lenses. For me, this has the advantage of seeing how different lenses react to the same subjects. I know what a good lens can do with the different subjects that I take so I know what to look for. The route is around 8 kilometers long and takes me some three to four hours with all the stopping I do to get some photographs. It's a great walk, gets me some fresh air and I love just working on the images when I get home. This is the time I know if a lens will stay or will be put on the great auction house in the cloud.

I just liked how the cloud seems to whirl around the top of this bridge support. Note how clean contrasty and sharp this image is. This lens is staying right here.

To me, this is the rendition I like from a lens, sharp but doesn't really look sharp. Not sure I explained that correctly but it remind me of the rendition a Leica lens gives you.

Continuing with the Skopar. Look how contrsty this lens is. I can't fault the sharpness either. Not much done to this image in post processing.
