View Full Version : Compatibility of Voigtlander 35/1.2 and Minolta CLE
Dear RFF members,
I have a CLE and going to get a v1 Voigtlander 35/1.2. Just wonder if they can work together? I couldn't find anything about that on the internet and will appreciate your input.
I have both but it's not a combination I use very often.
The 35/1.2 is trickier to focus on the CLE at f1.2 than on an M or Zeiss Ikon due to shorter base length but not impossible by any means. Quite a weight on the front so balance is affected. No 35mm framelines built in. Otherwise no other issues and nothing to stop you having a go. Just be careful with the focussing if shooting at max aperture.
Thank you Austerby.
After trying out the CLE 35/1.2 combo, I have to say it's tricky to focus within 1m at max aperture; especially the rangefinder disengages at 0.75m and any closer distance is simply a guess.
All and all, it's still a usable combo.
