    M Mount Voigtlander 35/1.4 at Amazon - http://amzn.to/2oI2giP

    Voigtlander native Sony E mount Nokton Classic 35/1.4 lens. I ramble on a bit in this video after using this lens for more than a week. I was really looking forward to this lens being released but I am torn when it comes to recommending it. This generally means I shouldn't recommend it but it does check the majority of boxes for me (I don't pixel peep my images).

    Today we are looking at the Voigtlander 35mm Nokton 14. Classic for Sony E mount and this lens replaced this lens by Voigtlander which is the 35mm 1.4 Nokton in Leica M Mount. Big difference between the two size wise. Much smaller. Much more compact. I really like this lens. A lot of people don't. This is the latest iteration. It's really nice. The focus throw feels excellent. The aperture ring is clicky. Unlike the Zeiss Loxia, you know when you're focusing and you know where the aperture ring is. And that, that here again, my only complaint with the Loxia lenses are the aperture rings. Uh, just, this is very solid. The lens hood comes off. Not a big deal. doesn't add a lot. It screws. So it is very compact, it's light weight, but man, I can't get over that size differential between this and this is so large. So we're going to take a couple of just real quick shots. I don't want to. Just to compare this lens versus this lens. I know people are talking about the nervous jittery bokeh. The bokeh doesn't bother me with this lens. For what it is my expectations from the word "classic" was in the title. I knew what we were getting. Again, I thoroughly enjoyed this lens in Leica M mount. So let's see how close they actually are. It really increased the size. It differs from this lens in that the aperture ring is opposite. So here is 1.4 and you turn clockwise to go to your small aperture. This one you turn counterclockwise. So that's the only real difference besides size that I can tell so far. Would I recommend it? It depends. If you are happy with this, I don't know why you would want this. If you are happy with this but you would like EXIF data, absolutely. Do you want a little bit better manual focus lens, the Zeiss Loxia. But it's not faster, it's slower. So with that being said I think it's a good lens. It's probably a bit over priced. I also don't understand why it is so much bigger. Even if you throw in all the electronic stuff, which I know absolutely nothing about, why is it bigger? Other than that, yeah, I think it's a pretty solid purchase but people, it's going to be a very decisive lens in the community. Umm, thanks for watching. Please subscribe. Thanks! Stop. Am I, am I just ruining this? Let's watch it. It's about six minutes if you combine the two. Just backup a little bit and hit play.
