If you’ve in the market for a tiny, fun, manual focus bokeh monster to carry around with you, photographer Nitsan Simantov would like to introduce you to his “favorite lens ever”: The Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f/1.4 MC.
This teeny tiny 35mm f/1.4 M-Mount lens features some of the most gorgeous, painterly bokeh money can buy. Similar to the so-called “Bokeh Monster” Helios 85mm f/1.5, it’s distinctive and can really make your shallow DOF pictures sing if you know how to use it.
Check out Nitsan’s full video review above, and then scroll down to see some of the sample shots he captured with the Nokton 35:
If you like what you see, you can pick up the Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f/1.4 MC on B&H for $630. And even if you don’t think this lens is for you, we definitely suggest checking out Nitsan’s YouTube channel for more gear reviews, tutorials, and more.
