Voigtlander Color Skopar 20 mm f/3.5 SL II Aspherical

 

“Pancake” type lenses enjoy widespread popularity among photographers. It is not always a rational feeling - such devices feature average fastness and the offered image quality on the edge of the frame is not of the highest calibre. Despite that fact...

small barrel but very well-put-together and solid at the same time ; very good build quality ; very good image quality in the frame centre ; well-corrected chromatic aberration ; slight distortion ; low vignetting on APS-C/DX sensor ; good work against...

very weak, momentarily simply dismal image quality on the edge of the frame ; very high astigmatism ; huge coma ; significant vignetting on full frame

The best 20 I have found on the market, if one wants a new lens at a friendly price!

Very small size, 100% metal build, no serious optical problems of any sort, ideal discreet travel lens.Use it f/3.5-5.6, and you'll get the best out of it! I use it to shoot the sky, and have not had any coma problems, as others have reported.Very much...

Could be faster, as max aperture is f/3.5

It is the one I wouldn't travel without.

Perfect for travels. Light. Bright enough. Infinity after 3m

Sometimes I want it to be f/2.8 for creaative portraits

Voigtlander Color Skopar 20 mm f/3.5 SL II Aspherical

 

This is a splendid walk around lens on APS-C 1.5, at 30mm focal length. With F8 there is no focus necessary at distances larger than around 1m. When judging this lens one should take all parameters into account, this is a 20mm! lens at around 200gr not...

Voigtlander Color Skopar 20 mm f/3.5 SL II Aspherical

 

If you can live without AF and don't print very large, this lens is a piece of jewelry and so much fun in street photography. Just don't expect great corner sharpness unless stopped down a lot. I recommend it to purists who love cautious framing and...

Beautiful bokeh for a wide-angle, good flare resistance, very good sharpness at the center right from f/3.5, DOF markings and distance scale, spectacular build quality. Nice (not good) corner sharpness only at f/11, mushed otherwise

Poor IQ at the corners, even on DX - poor sharpness, heavy coma, high CAs below f/8. No AF
