Voigtlander is known for creating manual focus lenses that offer excellent image quality and robust build quality. The MACRO APO-LANTHAR 110mm f/2.5 offers a focal length useful for portraiture in tandem with 1:1 macro capabilities, making it an especially versatile option. This excellent video review takes a look at the lens and the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in usage.
Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this great video review takes a look at the Voigtlander MACRO APO-LANTHAR 110mm f/2.5 lens. The 110mm f/2.5 is quite a capable lens and comes with a nice range of features, including:
- Apochromatic optical design to minimize chromatic aberrations
- Manual aperture ring with 1/3 stop clicks
- 10-blade aperture diaphragm for smoother bokeh
- Minimum focus distance of 13.7"
- 1:1 maximum magnification ratio
- All-metal construction
- Included lens hood
- Electronic contacts to transmit EXIF data and enable in-body image stabilization
- Smooth manual focus ring with long focus throw
While the manual focus design might make some think twice, it is important to remember that modern mirrorless cameras have a lot of focusing aids that make the process a lot easier, as long as you are not photographing fast action. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts on the lens.
