A Review of the Voigtlander Nokton 21mm f/1.4 Lens

Voigtlander is known for making all-metal manual focus lenses that offer durable construction and sharp and contrasty images. The Nokton 21mm f/1.4 Aspherical lens is another in that tradition, and it offers a unique focal length paired with a very wide maximum aperture. This great video review takes a look at the lens and the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this excellent video review takes a look at the Voigtlander Nokton 21mm f/1.4 Aspherical lens. 21mm is quite the interesting focal length, offering a wide angle of view, but one that won’t bring too much distortion with it, and with that f/1.4 maximum aperture, the lens is quite versatile. Alongside that, it features:

  • 13 elements in 11 groups
  • Two aspherical elements for reduced distortion and increased sharpness
  • Three partial dispersion elements for reduced chromatic aberrations and increased clarity
  • Floating element system for high image quality throughout focusing range
  • 12-blade diaphragm for particularly smooth bokeh
  • De-clickable aperture for video work
  • Electronic contacts for EXIF data transfer and use of advanced camera functions, such as focus magnification

Check out the video above for Frost’s full thoughts on the lens.
