Voigtlander Announces Nokton 35mm f/1.4 FE Lens


Voigtlander has announced their latest fullframe E-Mount manual focus lens: Nokton Classic 35mm f/1.4 Lens for Sony E-mount ($799 here).

It’s the sixth lens in Voigtlander’s fullframe E-Mount line joining the Voigtlander 10mm f/5.6 Aspherical, 12mm f/5.6 Aspherical III, 15mm f/4.5 Aspherical III, 40mm f/1.2 Nokton Aspherical & Macro APO-Lanthar 65mm f/2 Aspherical Lenses

“Large-diameter & compact wide-angle lens that refined the flavor of classic lenses with the latest optical technology and revived to the present age. Unlike modern performance-based lens design, it embodies the beauty of lens character and depiction by intentionally leaving aberration.”

Sony E Mount Compatible:

With the electronic contact, the usage status of the lens is reflected in the EXIF information of the shooting data. In addition, because it incorporates a distance encoder, it supports 5-axis camera shake compensation on the camera body side. You can also enlarge the display by operating the focus ring.

Symmetrical Lens Configuration:

Reconstructed with the latest optical technology while adopting the traditional symmetrical lens configuration to obtain a unique and beautiful depiction. By adopting ultrahigh refraction glass, we have realized a large aperture with compact size.


Optimized Optical Design:

In addition to securing full-size image circle, it adopts optical design optimized for Sony E mount sensor. You can enjoy soft delicate descriptions reminiscent of classic lenses with stable image quality.

Reliable Manual Focus:

By adopting a total metal helicoid unit machined and adjusted with high accuracy and high quality grease producing moderate torque, smooth operation feeling is realized. It enables delicate focus adjustment.

    1. Voigtlander has found a niche making manual focus Sony E-mount and Leica M-mount lenses. EXIF transfer with their Sony E-mount lenses is a big plus as it enables Focus Assist.

  1. This looks promising! I assume this lens will have a declick aperture like the 40mm? How similar do you think the image qualities/bokeh will be to the Leica M version of this lens?

    1. Not sure about de-click aperture. I don’t see a mention of that but that doesn’t mean it’s not there. Lens design symmetrical is based on Voigtlander’s classic 35mm F1.4

  2. Hi Brian,
    I’m looking at buying one of the two new Voigtlanders (either the 40mm 1.2 or the 35 1.4) for my A7RM2. I have read outstanding reviews about the 40mm, but can’t find a word written about the 35mm e-mount version.
    I happen to be a “the wider the better” guy, but 1.2 has an appeal that is hard to fight.
    Do you think the character and quality of the 35 might match the 40 ?
    I’d value your opinion in making my pick.

      1. just checked with B&H sales rep, they won’t get delivery till late next week.

        Please suggest web link I can learn more about how to use such manual lens with focus assist etc.

        Which US dealer will most likely get shipment this week instead of late next week?
