A6600 with Voigtländer Nokton 40/1.2
5

Today I had the opportunity to take out my new cv lens. I took it easy today since yesterday it bit me with some CAs. Today I faired better and I am getting to bond with the lens. Comments and critics are welcomed.

Some architectural images, trying to avoid the dreaded CAs with fast lenses

Old, modernized distillery in Guelph, ON

Art in rust

The deep, dark forest and split rail fences

Notice the recent snow

In the distance some Buffleheads

Shot in B+W setting in-camera

A walk through the forest

Be careful that this boulder does not roll over your foot. How does this get into a perfectly flat forest?

Joachim,

Looks nice - I like how some of the manual lenses have a certain character - even if not always the sharpest or most perfect - there's just a feel to the out of focus areas and color that's interesting to me.  I have the Voigtlander 35mm F1.4 and always enjoy playing around with it for just that reason!

Never tried the Voigt 40mm - but I have a nice old Konica 40mm F1.8 that I also enjoyed - though I haven't put it on the A6600 yet.  Maybe I should!

Thanks Justin. I am still playing around with this CV40/1.2 getting used to its characteristics mostly to avoid getting into CAs. Close up environmental portraits look fantastic even wide open. It’s a fun lens. I had two of the Konica 40/1.8 when I had my NEX5N. I liked the FL and colours but the Bokeh was mostly terrible.
