The Voigtlander 65mm F2 Macro APO Lanthar is a stunningly sharp standard prime lens that doubles up as a very effective macro lens, all at a price that won't break the bank. Boasting the same stellar build quality that we've come to expect from recent Voigtlander lenses, this new optic is a real...

Extremely sharp from corner to corner. Very difficult to provoke chromatic aberrations even at the fastest aperture. Rendering and contrast is perfect for me, Im sure many people will agree as well.

This is a great lens for the Sony E mount system. Super sharp and works great as a general purpose lens. I personally dont so much macro, but for general purpose photography the focus throw doesnt bother me at all as Im not focusing super close on my subject.

I must say after 22 years of professional photography, it is incredible that one may purchase a lens of this calibre for so little money.What this lens can do in terms of controlling all aberrations and producing not only an incredibly razor sharp image, but also a beautiful looking image leaves me...

Modern lenses can offer more than optical quality. Image stabilization (IS) and auto focus make the frequency of great capture much higher. This lens is as great optically as my old leitz sumicrons but much bigger and heavier.

Online reviews raved about this lens. They were right!I love almost everything about it except:1. Size/weight - it's pretty large due to macro capability2. The aperture ring is in 1/3 stops - single or 1/2 stops would be easier to countImage quality is wonderful, down to the single pixel (on an...

Has quickly become my favorite lens for the sony A7rIII. Great for macro, portrait and all the in betweens. Great 'old school' feel. I love it.

Some aspects of the two shorter (55 and 28mm) OTUS lenses are a trifle better than this lens, but the reverse is also true. This monster is so sharp that it can (if everything is just right) produce a basically perfectly sharp image corner to corner wide open at f/2.
