Voigtlander 25mm Snapshot-Skopar f/4


I use a 35mm lens as my standard wide angle lens, but sometimes the 35mm isn't wide enough. I'd read many good reviews about the Cosina Voigtlander lenses and, finding the 25mm Snapshot Skopar used at KEH, decided to purchase this ultra wide lens. The...

Solid construction, small, extemely sharp lens

At f/4 it's probably not best for ultra-low light situations. Cosina Voigtlander discontinued this lens in favor of a ranegfinder coupled model

Voigtlander 25mm Snapshot-Skopar f/4


I use this gorgeous little lens on my Leica M2. It's well built, lightweight and very useful. It's not coupled to the rangefinder, but having click stops at 1, 1.5 and 3 meters as well as the well made dof-scale makes focussing easy. The viewfinder is...

Build quality, picture quality, very low price

Mounting the lens with adapter to an M-Leica

Voigtlander 25mm Snapshot-Skopar f/4


a real snapshot lense and much more. the only thing i would like about this lense is 1 or 2 f/stops more. but theres a flah in that cases. in street photography that im working on now theres i feel that every thing moves (i dont mean blure objects...

great lense. superb optical quality. snapshot is a good name for it, but i would also call it - '''intuition

f4, but from the other hand its small size is very importent

Voigtlander 25mm Snapshot-Skopar f/4


Having bought the 15mm, I thought I would try one of these. Big mistake! I've since bought 3 other Voigtlander lenses and an M6 to mount them on! It's a lovely lens. Handles well, looks great, and is very sharp.

Excellent optically, very, very cheap, small, light - in short, great

Not rangefinder coupled, L39 screw

Voigtlander 25mm Snapshot-Skopar f/4


This was the first of my Voigtlander lenses, and the one that sold me on the Bessa system. I'd used 24mm lenses with various SLR's (Canon and Nikon), but was blown away by the difference between those retrofocus designs and the tiny Voigtlander lens....

Absense of flare and barrel distortion. Tiny, light-weight. Click-stop focus settings more useful than I'd imagined

The finder coverage is a bit 'hit and miss' along the edges

Voigtlander 25mm Snapshot-Skopar f/4


For the money you can't touch this lens. From my experience and from what I've read as good as any but the very latest Leica lenses made in the last few years. After I got used to the lens not rangefinder coupled I find I can shoot faster than ever....

Very sharp even to the edges,good contrast and color saturation.Very light and small.Well made

Slow but if it was faster it would be more expensive and be much larger

Voigtlander 25mm Snapshot-Skopar f/4


Good overall lens, very sharp & it looks good on my Bessa L. Dont like the screw mt as it takes too long to change lenses. Got inro RF because I like the quietness of the cameras. Have you read God's Book? There will be a test!

Small, light sharp, takes 39mm filters, has hood

Alittle slow (f4), screw mount, not coupled RF

Voigtlander 25mm Snapshot-Skopar f/4


Good value for your money. Sharp. Viewfinder included. No rangfinder coupling but it is not a problem. Great alternative to save some money and to own a "must have" lens for outdoor/landscape photographer.

Sharp, small, included viewfinder

slow, hood fixed into the lens, strange cap

Voigtlander 25mm Snapshot-Skopar f/4


I use this lense on a Leica IIIf and love the shots for sharpness and contrast, and easy use. Also 25mm is a very useful focal length. No problem focussing, even with no rangefinder coupling. Thislense also feels like a very expensive lense,...

Quality of construction and sharpness and fun

Slow (f4)
