    Re: Fun With Sony Cameras

    We saw this week how vulnerable monumental cathedrals can be, so I paid a visit to the Antwerp cathedral which I had not visited for a long time. Usually when I'm in Antwerp and want to see (or take photo's) in an old church I go the the St Paulus or the Carolus Borromeus, but almost never the Onze Lieve Vrouwe cathedral.
    More to come later

    Great shots. That Touit Macro has nice Bokeh and lots of micro contrast.

    A return visit 34 years later to the Clavell Tower - A Folly sitting high up on the Dorset cliffs at Kimmeridge Bay
    Back then (1985) I used a Gandolfi Traditional 10x8 wooden field camera and made a (poor quality) Contact/Bromoil print
    You can read about it here - https://www.getdpi.com/forum/sony/96...tml#post636239





    The folly has since moved inland by about 25 metres (in 2005) because of the cliff erosion.

    I really like these, Barry. I can’t decide which is my favourite. The monochrome has great pop but the colour has a lot of dimensions that catch my eye.

    I'm thinking that since he is more interested in his phone, perhaps he should be 'Photoshopped' out completely, shadow too.

    Lovely ! They say the image circle (VM-mount) is large enough to cover Fuji's GFX-50s/r sensor ... mmm

    Thanks Bart, I had also considered getting the VM version, as I had it in mind of perhaps getting the FujiFilm 100mp camera later on when it was released...That way it would serve the Sony FF system and the FujiFilm medium format GFX camera or even another camera maker.

    My reasonings why I didn't, was that I didn't want to keep buying lenses that didn't relay exif data and suffering from possible misaligned lens adapters.

    The E mount version so I understand has been redesigned for Sony's thicker sensor stack which is important with close focusing fast shallow DOF lenses...I believe Fred (FM) has confirmed this to be true.

    The E mount lens is slighly more expensive but includes the hood for free - BTW the hood is identical to the 40mm E mount lens as far as I can see...I personally dislike the vented VM hoods anyway, they are functional on a rangefinder but not really necessary on a Sony mirrorless...besides they are quite an expensive extra item.

    The E mount lens is slighly more heavier at 434g vs VM 344g but if you chose to add a close focus CV-Sony adapter (circa 120g) it would end up being heavier!

    I personally prefer the E mount 58mm filter thread over the 52mm filter thread VM mount

    The silver nosed VM lenses are more at risk with sun flare...(Again see Fred over at FM)

    MFD E mount 0.45m vs MFD VM mount 0.7m without a close focus adapter

    If you’re using F1.2, you can use the whole image since the edges will be so blurred in luscious creamy bokeh that you won’t notice the colour aberrations on the edges and the vignetting.
    If however you want to use the lens at F8 for a landscape, I would recommend cropping the image.

    I don't think it does Alan...as I believe the CV 40mm VM f1.2 image circle vignettes even more than the CV 50mm VM f1.2 image circle...A post crop in editing or pre-crop in camera would then be required.

    If however you want to use the lens at F8 for a landscape, I would recommend cropping the image.


    I don't think it does Alan...as I believe the CV 40mm VM f1.2 image circle vignettes even more than the CV 50mm VM f1.2 image circle...A post crop in editing or pre-crop in camera would then be required.
    Thank you, Barry. You're right about the missing EXIF data and cropping isn't an option, fine for existing lenses, but not for a new lens to buy. That's a pity for sure.
    In terms of sharpness WO, how do the 40/1.2 and 50/1.2 compare ?

    TIA

    Still playing with the old Contax N 100mm f/2.8 Makro-Sonnar on the A7II. Just for the bright colors.

    Which lens is sharper at f/1.2!....That put me on the spot - Thanks Bart ...A quick off the cuff answer and I would say they are about the same...If you like your 40mm you won't be dissapointed in the 50mm.

    No reason to own both, as they are not spaced far enough in focal lenth for most people...I purchased it to see if it would replace my 50mm Mitakon f/0.95 (Early days and I'm still on the fence and need to do some direct comparisons when I have some free time).

    I suspect most people that buy either the Voigtlander 40mm and 50mm f/1.2 Noktons will not be shooting at "infinity" WO (I think night photographers would be sadly dissapointed with mapping the stars, as the extreme corners are going to be soft at f/1.2 infinity focused, although stopping down helps dramatically).

    The market segment that I think this lens is being aimed at is street photographers (daytime and especially low light...ie. Vivek and Co.) where the rendering/bokeh subject isolation is probably going to be just as important as sharpness if not more so.

    The 50mm F1.2 being the longer focal length naturaly gives you more OoF and subject isolation than the wider angled 40mm f1.2 at the same taking position (I personally prefer the 50mm WO seperation/isolation creamy rendering to the 40mm)...You need to get in closer with the 40mm to achieve similar (not the same) isolation of your subject matter.

    Anyway enough faffing about, I'm just thinking how to best answer you
    I just carried out some quick non scientific tests (Handheld no tripod) as the light keeps changing here (contrasty then flat) sunny with a lot of clouds and it's now dark
    I won't upload the images taken at different distances WO but after some 50-100% pixel peeking...These are my thoughts
    Both lenses on center WO look similiar in sharpness between 1.5m and infinity and are very acceptable (to me at least)....with about the 2-5m range focused distance showing a stronger sharper center to edges than what infinity does.
    Below 1m focused distance the 50mm f1.2 I would say suffers the worst of the two lenses, as things are starting to get softer (glowy) and lower in contrast, where it would be best to add a diopter achromat to improve matters.

    My final thoughts...The sharpness of the Voigtlander 65mm Macro Apo-Lanthar WO at f/2 is on a higher level than either of the 50mm and 40mm Noktons at f/2

    Some links for you and others...

    In terms of sharpness it does a better job in my mind than my 50mm Summilux did at f/8

    Last shot (for awhile) with the Contax N 100mm f/2.8 Makro-Sonnar on the A7II. Old boathouse window with new glass and glazing. This lens probably produced the sharpest rendering of all the lenses I've used in the past to shoot (handheld) this scene.



    I couldn't resist adding this "One leg balance act" shot

    Really like this shot but mostly because they both used their outside leg. Love the symmetry and the reflections in the water. I'm rather OCD so the symmetry of the "inside legs up" grabbed me right away.
