Victoria's Light

I decided to get some fresh air at dusk and went to the Riverfront.  This bridge is an architectural marvel.  I used the miraculous Voigtlander 21mm F 1.8 lens, recommended to me by my friend Domenico Dodaro.  It is a great lens to use for scenes like this.  I own two Voigtlander Leica M lenses, this one and the 50mm F 1.2.  The images I posted yesterday were shot with the 50.  The build quality on the Voigtlander lenses is on par with my Zeiss Leica M lenses, and both lens brands have superior build quality to most native Leica lenses.  To me, there is no measurable difference in the quality of the pictures from Voigtlander and Leica lenses, and the Voigtlanders are lighter on the wallet.  I particularly like the knurled focusing rings and the snappiness of the aperture ring on both Voigtlanders.   If my opinion means anything, at least the two Voigtlander lenses I discuss here are very happily recommended.

35mm Film Shootist

Hi I'm Martin Smith, a amateur photographer that likes to shoot solely film. I use black & white with the odd colour image thrown in and mainly use a Leica M4-2 & M3 with Summicron 35mm and 50mm lenses. I tend to shoot anything I like, objects, scenes, landscape or street life. My film of choice now is Fomapan 100 Classic.
