    Voigtländer Apo-Lanthar 35 mm f/2.0 - Test on Sony Alpha 7C E-Mount - Stefan Czurda

    One of the best lenses money can buy are apochromatic lenses. Due to their complex optical design they are exceptionally well corrected in terms of color errors.

     

    In this context, my expectations for the Voigtländer Apo-Lanthar 35 mm f/2.0 were very high.

    It is very rare to find a 100 year old camera in such a pristine condition including it's original maker's box with matching filmholders and carrying case.

    Ernemann has had a huge impact on early photography producing some of the finest wooden cameras at its time. I am proud to be able to show you one of their flagship cameras for tropical conditions made from teak wood with brass fittings in fully original condition.
