Owner reviews: Voigtländer Color Ultron 50 mm f/1.8

Milan Cvijanovic 01.02.2023 19:38:18
Period of use: 2 years

Strengths:
  • Sharp
  • pleasing colour rendering
  • good flare control
  • bokeh

Weaknesses:

  • Singapore made lenses are prone to mechanical defects
  • bokeh on photos taken from close distance on cloudy day with no light points may be ugly.

Comments:

Optically, it is the same lens as Carl Zeiss Planar 50mm f1.8 and Rollei Planar 50mm f1.8 in QBM mount. That means very nice rendering, sharpness, centre sharpness even wide open. Bokeh is a very subjective affair. I personally like planar bokeh, but a lot of reviewers are not pleased with it. To get good results, one needs to know the lens and use it according to its strengths. That means that in some situations Ultron (planar) will create ugly background, but it is easy to avoid it.
