First Voigtländer 40mm f/1.2 FE lens review

David Braddon-Mitchell tested the new Voigtländer 40mm f/1.2 Nokton FE lens and concludes:

“This lens has some very beautiful aspects. The bokeh is just glorious in many situations. Its speed means you can use a 40mm lens for portraits and get blur comparable to a 1.4/50, thus reducing the one disadvantage, to my taste, of a slightly wider standard lens for environmental portraiture.
What makes it possibly attractive is the speed: for street, for environmental portraits, for playing with the glorious bokeh in the lit-up nighttime of the city (sorry I have no samples of that sort yet!) For all that, it appears give to give excellent results across much of the field stopped down. Of course this will be a lot less appealing if chromatic aberration , flare and backlit bokeh aren’t good, so that’s what I’ll be testing next.”
