Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f1.1 on XP1 initial impressions (w/ focus distances)
Oct 16, 2013

Just thought I'd share some of my first images with this lens. Firstly, flaring and haze is because of the filter. I later shot without the filter and found no flaring at all.

All images are shot at f1.1 unless otherwise specified.

I think an interesting comparison would be to get the Nikon 50mm f1.2 with the metabones F mount to X mount speed booster. Now THAT would be a low light monster.

approximately 3m away, focus is on El Catrin

3m-4m away, focus on bricks

2m away, focus on "closed" sign

Can't remember focus distance, but focus is on the meter's number scale.

Shot at f 5.6, focused on the words.

closest focus distance @ f1.1

same image, but focused on the background. Metal mesh almost disappears.

focused on the still life, about 4m away.
