This is the first of a series of articles showcasing pictures taken on the Voigtländer Nokton 17.5mm/1:0.95. These pictures were taken around The Rocks Area and showcases the lens as a general purpose standard lens that you may take on a photowalk, or when you are a tourist discovering a city for the first time.
For more information on the Heliar 17.5mm lens, check out my initial impressions article and other articles in the series:
These photos were taken at Lang Park, and along Cumberland St featuring the Glenmore and Australia hotels as well as the infamous Sirius building which was designed as a public commission apartment block. The building is in the Brutalist style and was scheduled to be demolished and rebuilt but this was controversial and the latest news is that the building will now be refurbished so hopefully we will continue to enjoy the striking architecture in the years to come.
The lens is a bit too heavy to be used as a general purpose walkabout lens and I found the contrast and colours to be a bit muted compared to legendary 35mm rangefinder classic lenses.
