Yellow Leaves

GXR A12-M, 1/3200, ISO 200, RAW, 53mm (Voigtlander Nokton f1.2 35mm)


  1. Wonderful depth, colors and out-of-focus areas. Did you buy the Voigtländer Nokton 35/1.2? It's certainly a lens I considered as my general purpose prime. In the end, I found it too heavy as my carry everywhere kit. But if you don't mind that, the results look great.

  2. Thanks for your comment Björn!

    The colours are part of me changing the white balance a bit in RAW Therapee, the Noktons have a cooler colour reproduction.

    I bought the Nokton f1.2 to see if it can replace both my m4/3 Nokton f0.95 25mm and M Nokton f1.4 35mm. So far it looks like it can and I prefer the handling over the f1.4 Nokton. I don't mind the size and have the GR lens for when I want a small and high quality lens, the Nokton will be for low light.

  3. Cristian, that makes a lot of sense; that way you don't have a lens that is only usable on m4/3.

    I suspect I'm not the only one who would be very interested in seeing a comparison between both the CV 35/1.2 and CV 35/1.4 at F1.4. One is much larger and considerably more expensive and it would be interesting to see the magnitude of the difference in IQ wide open.

  4. I will try to do a comparison between the Nokton lenses and see what the difference really is. So far I simply prefer the feel and even size of the f1.2 over the smaller f1.4. There also seems to be less fringing and flare on the f1.2 and the bokeh seems a bit nicer.
