This is the ninth of a series of articles showcasing pictures taken on the Voigtländer Nokton 17.5mm/1:0.95. These pictures were taken inside the beautiful St. Andrew’s Cathedral in the heart of Sydney next to the Town Hall.
St. Andrew’s Cathedral is the seat of the Anglican Archbishop of Sydney and was designed by Emend Blacket and completed in 1868. It is built in the Gothic Revival Style and has a beautiful church organ inside.
This was a good opportunity to see how well the lens capture colour and detail in the low light environment of the cathedral.
The lens performed well, as will be expected because of the maximum aperture of f0.95 and there is no trace of optical distortion in reproducing straight lines..
