Voigtlander ULTRON 75mm f/1.9 SC/MC VM lens review at FredMiranda

Fred Miranda published his review of the new Voigtlander ULTRON 75mm f/1.9 SC/MC VM lens for Leica M-mount (pre-order at Adorama):

Final Thoughts:

To sum up, the Voigtlander 75mm f/1.9 Ultron by Cosina is an impressive offering. It’s a compact, lightweight, and affordable lens that performs excellently as a multi-purpose short telephoto lens. The lens provides high resolution and contrast for most of the image field, with optimal performance achieved at apertures of f/2.4 and f/2.8. It’s an excellent choice for landscape photography, with corner performance becoming optimal at f/4.

While there are some minor drawbacks, such as the ‘cats-eye’ shaped specular highlights and noticeable focus shift, the Voigtlander 75mm f/1.9 Ultron still represents great value for its price. The lens is capable of producing 12-pointed sunstars with its aperture mechanism, and the multi-coated version has excellent flare resistance. Overall, this lens is a worthwhile investment for anyone seeking a high-quality 75mm lens for their rangefinder camera.
At minimum focus distance, it performed better than expected, considering it’s not equipped with a floating element/group. The lens’ rendering is mostly smooth and pleasant and I think it’s a great choice for portraits or any other application where the out of focus area should be not distractive.


  1. Modern, compact, and lightweight design for a 75mm lens.
  2. High resolution and contrast wide open, with optimal performance at f/2.8 in the center and f/4 in the corners.
  3. Low distortion and low field curvature.
  4. Minimal focus distance of 0.5m.
  5. Excellent build quality with tight tolerance construction.
  6. Aperture mechanism creates 12-pointed sunstars.
  7. Low chromatic aberration.
  8. Great flare resistance, especially with the multi-coated version.


    1. Specular highlights may have a “cats-eye” shape due to high optical vignetting.
    2. Slight focus shift.
    3. Sensitive focus due to the short focusing throw.
