Voigtlander Ultron 40 mm f/2 SL II Aspherical

 

Manual lenses, produced nowadays, enjoy quite a wide circle of fans. Among these fans, in spite of appearances, there are not only people with fond memories of good old times when there were no autofocus lenses on the market at all. A part of...

small, compact and very solid barrel at the same time ; high build quality ; very good image quality in the frame centre ; chromatic aberration well-controlled ; low distortion ; vignetting on the APS-C/DX sensor not bothersome ; good work against...

weak image quality at the edge of the frame near the maximum relative aperture ; high coma ; significant vignetting on full frame

Voigtlander Ultron 40 mm f/2 SL II Aspherical

 

It's remarkable that nobody has reviewed this lens here yet as one would assume that with its all metal build, excellent overall image quality and compact size it would particularly appeal to Pentax users. The Ultron's physical length doesn't exceed...

Excellent build quality, fast, compact, sharp wide open, good image quality, fair pricing, accessories

unpractical lens cap, some flare

Voigtlander Ultron 40 mm f/2 SL II Aspherical

 

This lens seems to have it all, except for autofocus - and that is a plus for slowing down and better composing the image. I have a Nikon 70-200 2.8 VRII when I need to cover action, but for "taking to work" and just fun photography, this little...

Sharp from f/3.2, incredibly contrasty, no CA to see, and love the colour! In addition, it is small, great for just taking along, and is certainly the most inconspicuous lens for streetshooting. Did I mention great quality construction

None, being aware stopping down always helps

Voigtlander Ultron 40 mm f/2 SL II Aspherical

 

If you dont mind manual focus, this is the perfect single lens for full frame SLR's.

Tiny size allows it to be kept on the camera all the time.Fast(ish) for such a small lensAwesome quality (aside from the rubber ring mentioned above)Wonderful punchy sharp images

Rubber focus ring came loose (although the rubber ring was replaced under warranty without question)
