Great photos Jon! You make Natura 1600 look great. I never warmed up to that film, but if I was getting results like that I would have shot it more. Maybe it is best in the night cityscape arena?

Coma control of the new Ultron is impressive indeed. Beating the Summicron asph. perhaps?

Thanks Will! I find I get good results when I over expose Natura 1600 by one or two stops, and err on the side of more exposure rather than less. A shame Fujifilm discontinued it though. I've only got three rolls left now Here's a couple more from the same roll.

Erik.

Michael did indeed visit Tokyo. Was great fun hanging out with him! I noticed that the barrel distortion is a little more pronounced at close distances, but still very acceptable for me as I much prefer it over pincushion distortion. At further distances its practically non-existent. I'm quite ok with that design decision by the Cosina lens designers.

Best,

Michael did shoot a few frames with the Ultron, but I think he prefers that extra stop of the Distagon!

Thanks, Mike. Those pix give a decent sense of the lenses out of focus areas. Is that photo of the lamp at f:2?

Hi Benjamin,

I shot that at f2.2 or, whatever one click to the right of f2.0 is.

Hi! Is anyone else's CV 35/2 Ultron focusing closer than the 0.58m as advertised? Think their quality control of the lens is rather lacking (from the sheer overabundance of grease and this). Please let me know if I just got a really bad copy!

Dude, stop sweating over non-problems!
Extra grease happens. Just wipe it off.
Lots of lenses focus a little closer than advertised. Isn't that a good thing???

Haha thanks for the heads up Jon. I've never had issues like this compared to my Leica and Zeiss M lenses so it's all new to me. 🙃

But I must say, it's a fine lens otherwise.

Your M4 with M3/2 levers is looking sharp. You need the rewind lever too!

Reminds me of the hearse song...

"The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
The worms play pinochle on your snout."


Again, I must be giving away my age.

Some more of my recent shots!

Visiting Komatsukaike Marsh.


Just because one is walking through a marsh there is no reason why one can't be fashionable while doing so.

First time to hear about a hearse song, Yokosuka Mike! Perhaps more of a cultural background thing than an age thing, though?!

Here's a few more Ultron 35mm pics. I finally got to shoot my favourite coma testing target, and the Ultron passed with flying colours! Right up there with the best from Leica/Zeiss and totally smokes the Zeiss ZM Biogon 35/2.

No coma in this one either!

Here's the new Voigtlander Ultron 35mm f/2 Vintage at closest focus and apertures between f/2 and f/11. Taken with CL on HP5+ in XTOL 1+2. See my Flickr Ultron gallery for 1920px size:

Note: f/2 and f/2.8 samples have slightly different tonal mapping due to differences in scanner input settings (i.e. not due to the lens).

f/2

Some more pictures with the Ultron 35mm f/2 Vintage, Leica CL and Pan F 100 in ID-11 10min 20C. V700 scans.

The two 16:9 crops are foreground removal only, so you're looking at the top part of the full frame width.

Bokeh is a bit busy in the second image. I think it was taken @f/2.8 but can't be sure.

OK, there's no barrel distortion, just a barrel truss
