This lens was introduced a shot while ago, still under production. Yes, it is the world fasted 35mm lens Mr. K is proud of.
It is indeed a nice lens, sharper than my copy of Leica summicron 35mm ASPH at any aperture! Its nicety is coming not
from sharpness but from its unique rendering and smooth bokeh, very rare among japanese lenses I know of. But it is
large and heavy and pricy too, so you do not wish to travel around with this lens. Though some did. http://ejanjan.exblog.jp/tags/砂漠/
Its minimum focusing distance is 0.7m, which is good, but it hide a quite bit of 35mm frame in the finder.

And as usual, my hp page for this lens is > http://www.pbase.com/kkawakami/voigtlander_nokton_35mm_f12

The lens looks like this, this vented hood is an extra, but the lens comes with an another short hood. The both are made of metal.


2) at Bookstore in dusk (I really like shooting in dusk, personal thing) Fuji RDP III

4) Probably at f5.6 or 8 RVP100


5) @f5.6 or 4 Movie shooting (Toronto is sometime called "Hollywood North"), so FoV is real 35mm.

This thread is likely my last post in "ranggefinder", since we are going to Japan soon
and start studying spanish (we want to go Mexico, South America, and Spain and
Portugal again) but I do not have any talent for foreign language! Embarassed Very Happy

Adios

Very impressive
Mr. K has done it again with this one. Wow it is a really large lens. It looks as big as the M Cool .

I think that the last one is in the series is the nicest flower group portrait I have seen for some time. Very Happy

Yes another fantastic series, and agree with Andy about the one flower group shot. I try to enjoy seeing these then an unwanted and acute attack of envy/jealousy gets in the way...I'm kidding, well, maybe by half. Wink Laughing

Beautful work, Koji!

Bill
