This bright universal lens in compact architecture allows you wonderful image results.
The 40/1.4 Nokton VM, the fastest 40mm rangefinder lens ever, has quickly become the most popular lens from Voigtlander's second generation lens range with Leica fit VM bayonet mounts. It has an semi wide 56° diagonal angle of view designed to render a very natural perspective on the 35mm frame.Its focal length makes it an ideal alternative standard lens, offering a wider field of view, and the fast aperture is available to maximise defocus effects from its shallow depth of field.
This focal length is a personal favourite of Mr Kobayashi apparently, and available is single coated and multi-coated versions. The former makes a beautiful low contrast lens, and ideal for portraiture. It is also well suited to lower contrast Black & White work or subtle tonality on colour negative film.
