Voigtländer 65mm macro FE review by Marc Alhadeff


65mm at BHphoto, Amazon and Adorama

Marc Alhadeff posted the full 65mm macro lens review. This is his conclusion:

The Voigltänder 65mm F2 Macro Apo Lanthar is an exceptional lens with a strong character.

  • Exceptional sharpness across the whole frame wide open at F2
  • Excellent color rendition
  • Reasonable price for the performance (900 euros)
  • nice sunstars effects
  • build like a tank

but you will need to live accommodate with

  • Some CA
  • Odd focal length : 65mm
  • Bokeh good in close distance , less good at longer distance
  • Only 1:2 magnification
  • Focusing ring precise in macro but less precise for portrait, street photography

For me this lens will be terrific for portraits , street photography , some details shooting, proxy photography, but for real macro, I still prefer Sony 90mm macro that I find better suited with its 1:1 magnification
