This is the second of a series of articles showcasing pictures taken on the Voigtländer Nokton 40mm 1:1.2. These pictures were taken around where I live, in the quiet leafy residential suburb of Roseville, close to Chatswood. This article focuses on pseudo-macro photos of flowers with some street scenes.
I won’t provide any further commentary and let the photos speak for themselves. Basically, the lens work well as a general purpose walkabout lens that you can take along with you on a walk.
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.
