Voigtlander Nokton 58mm f/1.4 SL II – Review by photozone.de

The Voigtlander Nokton 58mm f/1.4 II is an interesting new offer in the standard lens arena. The slightly longer than average focal length is especially attractive for APS-C DSLR users – a field-of-view “equivalent” to “85mm” is pretty much in the sweet spot of portrait photography. Technically the lens is somewhat soft at f/1.4 both in terms of border resolution as well as overall contrast. At f/2 and more so at f/2.8 the quality has improved significantly and the quality of the bokeh is also best around these settings. The sheer resolution potential in unleashed at medium aperture settings where the lens is about as good as it gets today.
