I have found some old pics taken with the 125.
Hum, time to take it out again.
Those are great! Artistically I like the 2nd one the best.

Older 50/1.8 Color-Ultron

I recently bought a Voigt Color-Ultron 50/1.8 in terrible shape but managed to fix it.
It is a stunning lens.

Heres 2 shots with it on my K5. Shot in RAW with no added sharpness at all.

Minimal processing in LR4 to add a little sat and contrast.
Also 100% crops and again. No added sharpening

I thought I was over my LBA but I guess I was just in the beginning....


First shot taken yesterday. Handheld tourist view over Stockholm.




Second shot a few days ago. Early foggy morning around 06:00.

Nice!
Would love to see what it can do.
This is a 1:2 macro or does it go all the way to 1:1?

Great lens
Nice. Looking forward to seeing that in action.


Heres a panorama made from 3 shots taken handheld with no intention of stitching them together but I tried and it worked.
The Voightländer 50/1.8 that I used is very sharp even in the edges even though it softens up slightly in the corners. I think that helped alot stiching this together.
Some PP trying to get the light the way I saw it.
Larger version if clicked.

Aliasant - your Color-Ultron shots do not surprise me in the slightest. I have one and believe that this cheaper VL is often over-looked in favour of it's more famous brethren, yet it shows how sharp it is and how it can stand on it's own !

Lovely 125 shots Piotr.

Thank you. Yes. Its a fantastic lens.

Heres one I shot a couple of days ago.
Somehow that lens can bring out magic from almost nothing.



Great shots Piotr!
Let me know when your fed up with that rediciously sharp Voigt!

I have serious Voigtlander LBA right now after purchasing and shooting the 40 SL2 for a couple months, absolutely love this lens so much I just bought the 20mm SL2 and in a month or two should be followed by the nokton than the lanthar and I'll hopefully stop there because on the long tele end of things I plan on slapping these lenses on my Q with a k mount adapter...

Heres some shots with my Ultron SL2 with my MX and K-01...

Nice pictures, I like that bunny shot and the Eastbay too (what was your vantage point for that, it looks like Berkeley Hills near that giant hill one can cross over from Orinda). I agree with you about the Ultron 40mm. It is shockingly good for such a tiny thing, and offers f2 no less (though my favorite Voigtlander is the 90mm). Congratulations on finding a VL 20mm to buy.
