Voigtlander Ultron 40mm f/2 SL-II Reviews

Kenrockwell reviews the Voigtlander Ultron 40mm f/2 SL-II and writes;
“Manual focus is so nice I don’t know how to put it in words. It’s like a LEICA lens, but with a perfect rubber grip around it. it’s at least as smooth as Nikon manual-focus lenses, and much nicer than Nikon’s AF lenses. Focus is as smooth as silk, perfectly damped with no play. The Voigtländer 40mm f/2 has very minor barrel distortion on FX, and no visible distortion on DX. There is no problem with vignetting, even with combinations of thick filters. There are no lateral color fringes on the D300 or D3, which would correct them if the lens had any.”

Photozone reviews the Voigtlander Ultron 40mm f/2 SL-II and writes;
“The Ultron is a very sharp lens straight from the max. aperture but especially around f/5.6. The amount of distortions and vignetting is generally negligible in field conditions. Lateral Chromatic aberrations are a bit higher than average but they don’t reach worrisome levels.”
Rating: ★★★★☆
