This is the eleventh of a series of articles showcasing pictures taken on the Voigtländer Nokton 17.5mm/1:0.95. These pictures were taken at St. Mary’s Cathedral and gives an overview of how the lens performs in low light.

According to Wikipedia, the full name of the church is the Cathedral Church and Minor Basilica of the Immaculate Mother of God, Help of Christians. It is the cathedral church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney and dedicated to the “Immaculate Mother of God, Help of Christians”, Patroness of Australia and holds the title and dignity of a minor basilica, bestowed upon it by Pope Pius XI on 4 August 1932.
This is another good opportunity is how how well the lens captures detail in low light situations. I also took the opportunity to visit the crypt below the main level.
The lens performed quite well, and I was really pleased with the colour rendering and overall balance.
