This is a Real Life Review of the new Voigtländer 75mm f1.5 VM-mount lens with Leica M10 and Sony A7r bodies, taken at the Klang Snake Temple and Johor Zoo in Malaysia, and at the Auburn Botanic Garden Cherry Blossom Festival.
This review focuses on the ability of the lens to take animal and human portraits, as well as object photography.
The lens fits snugly and feels well balanced on both the Leica M10 and Sony A7r. Focusing is relative easy, although I’ve found the focus dial turns quite easy and therefore the camera has a slight tendency to drift out of focus if you move the camera in between shots.
天福宫 Tian Hock Kung Snake Temple
This is a famous temple nestled right underneath the new Klang River Bridge in Malaysia, containing lots of motifs of snakes and a real live python inside. Andy Lau, the famous Hong Kong actor, reportedly once visited this popular temple. This is a good opportunity for object photography and testing the depth of field object isolation capabilities of this lens.
