This is the seventh of a series of articles showcasing pictures taken on the Voigtländer Nokton 40mm 1:1.2. These pictures were taken at a showcase of Australian artists and makers at the historic Lion Gate Lodge at the Royal Botanic Gardens called “Artisans in the Garden.”
Built in 1878, Lion Gate Lodge is a stunning Victorian sandstone building boasting a private landscaped cottage garden, large permanent awning and paved courtyard.
This event is a good showcase of the len’s ability to isolate subject detail from surroundings, and it’s contrast and colour handling.
For more information on the Nokton 40mm lens, check out my initial impressions article and other articles in the series:
The Voigtländer 40 mm/1:1.2 Nokton is a fast, manual lens, intended as an all-rounder walkabout prime lens that can shoot a variety of subjects comfortably. It straddles the gap between two common focal lengths for standard/normal lenses: 35mm and 50mm.
This is a Real Life Review of the Voigtländer 40mm f1.2 E-mount lens with the Sony A7r body. This is a really versatile lens capable of shooting a range of subjects and compositions ranging from close ups of flowers, art/sculpture, portraits/street shooting, to landscapes and architecture.
