Voigtländer Color Skopar 50/2.5
In reply to sparklite, 7 months ago

Voigtländer Color Skopar 50/2.5 -- Very beautifully crafted lens with nice classic rendering. Sorry that I don't have any public galleries up that spotlight this. Here is a set though:

The lens is reaching cult status in Japan and it now sells for high price.

My modified and adapted Industar-69 (28/2.8) Russian lens has a blurry/dreamy soft look that I really enjoy sometimes:

As nice as the Color-Skopar is, I pretty much stopped using it after getting the Oly 45. Even though the Oly has a more clinical look, it is still pleasing so I find it hard to go to the heavier adapted lens.

The handling and rendering of the Industar-69 make it the only "legacy lens" that I still use a lot. It's especially nice to scale focus for night photography. (I would love to add the Oly 17/1.8 sometime for the scale focusing -- anyone who does much night photography will understand how annoying relying on AF for super dark scenes can be!).
