Voigtlander have produced the fastest production coupled 35mm rangefinder lens ever made by any manufacturer in any 35mm rangefinder mount.
According to Voigtlander focusing is silky smooth, going from 0.7m closest focus to infinity in only 95 degrees of rotation. Superb sharpness is produced by the 10 elements in 7 groups with 3 aspheric elements with excellent image contrast. Complimenting the Voigtlander R2, the new metal-bodied Nokton has the M bayonet mount that also suits the current generation of Leica models.
The exact amount of shading is essential for optimum performance, particularly in difficult lighting situations, so the 35mm Nokton comes complete with a lens hood.
