Voigtländer Color-Lanthar 50mm, The pictorial bokeh complements the picture, in Kichijoji part2
I tasted it with Zeiss ikon’s 3D printer version and bought the second one from the same vendor. I will try Voigtlander, the first old lens version.
Voigtländer is an optical manufacturer that was founded in 1756 and has a long history of starting in the 1840s for cameras and lenses.
Although it is a manufacturer with a long history, it went bankrupt in the early 1980s due to the rough waves of the postwar era.
And the trademark right has changed several times, and now Cosina in Japan manufactures and sells it, so it feels like it is a different company, and in this blog, the categories are “Voigtlander” and “Voigtlander old”. Divided into.

The lens used in the Voigtländer Vitoret 35mm film camera seems to make up for the missing mount with a 3D printer.
The age seems to be around 1960, and considering the lenses posted in this blog, I think it is a little after the silver lens barrel of Helios 44 and Trioplan 50mm.

– Walk on the east side of Kichijoji that couldn’t go around
Bokeh, depiction around the frame, color
Oh!, there is a taste from the first photo.
It feels a little dry, but it feels like a Russian lens such as Helios, but it should be a lens with a completely different flow.
Nice, the delicacy of the focus surface. Only the flowers can be seen in front of you.
Is this the taste of the old Voigtlander?
Although it is a blur section, my eyes go to the focus surface.
It’s wonderful that it looks so delicate at this distance with the aperture open.
The bokeh in the foreground is a natural and straightforward bokeh that is close to the field of view.
It’s like a film. It’s a nice lens.
With a frame that has particles of light in the back like this, the lenses of this age will still be blurred.
I like it very much as a taste, but in theory it seems to be an optical problem.
It looks refreshing, the bokeh is like a film.
What an easy lens to shoot!
The only thing I’m worried about is that the contrast isn’t too much, but this should be taken as a taste.
Old lenses, that light easily circulates inside the lens barrel, and if the sunlight is a little strong, it may cause halation and the contrast may drop.
In a dark place, the lens is calm.
Even so, the way the focus surface stands out is a great taste (around the big red lantern).
Resolution, sharpness when the aperture is closed, aberration
Taken at about F8.0
Now, how about feeling that the aperture is F8.0 and the focus is on the whole?
It’s a depiction of thin lines as a whole, and the contrast is low, so it’s difficult to determine another shot.
I was wondering if the star in the middle would come out earlier, but it’s not good enough.
It might have been better to take a picture with a slight openness.
This balance is not bad.
However, it may be difficult to see the taste of this Color Lanthar.
There seems to be a slight drop in light at the four corners.
Is the expression of the light in the back the taste of this lens?
I don’t feel the sharpness so much, but I feel that the shape of this lens has been created for making a picture of the aperture.
It’s a little hard to see the flowers, but there are big white flowers in the middle.
The balance with the bokeh is the best.
It looks like a lens that makes it easy to see the focus stage according to the distance.
It’s a little too high key.
Peripheral light falloff is noticeable, but if the blurred part is not in the frame, the balance is a little unbalanced.
But you may like the texture of the branches of the plant.
It might have been a good frame if the subject that became the center of the composition came closer to me, but in any case, it seems that it is quite difficult to squeeze this lens to give it a taste.

Looking at the eBay market,
a lens-only one costs $200, and a camera with a lens costs about $50.
The one that costs $ 200 to $ 300 is probably a small lens called a DKL mount, and it seems that you can use it once you convert it from DKL to M42 mount and then to NEX etc.
I don’t know the details in the fields that I haven’t entered yet.
It’s difficult to decide which is better, disassembling the camera and remodeling it, or buying a higher one and converting it twice.
One piece of this lens
A photo of the tree on the door and a photo of this sunflower.
The delicate sharpness of the focus surface and the good contrast of the blur are the taste of this lens Color Lanthar.
Where I walked
“Kichijoji” city shooting recommendation★★★★★=5
Last time, the city was too big to go around, so I came to Kichijoji Street Walk Part 2.
This time I am walking mainly on the east side.
In such a large city, the atmosphere is quite different from the opposite west side.
I had never been in contact with theater so much, so I never knew there was such a big theater. The appearance is well-managed and unique and beautiful.
It is a building that makes me think that there are still many things in Tokyo.
There was an owl cafe in the city that I sometimes hear recently. There were two at the window, probably because of the crowd.
It moves around even in the daytime. An owl who is a talented owl who jumps when you point the camera.
Take a break and get hungry in front of Yodobashi Camera. It’s out of focus, but it’s a crepe.
The shortest shooting distance of this Color lanthar is 100 cm, so if you hold it in your hand, it will not reach the focus surface.
It wasn’t interesting to shoot with an iPhone, so I dared to shoot something that was out of focus.
At the back of the shrine on the outskirts of the city, there was probably a tomb, which was quite old and nice.
In the past, I used to take pictures of these Buddhist things with an unscrupulous feeling, but recently I’ve been actively taking pictures as if I should keep them.
If I don’t feel like standing and stopping, I’m shooting more and more.
By the way, when I have a feeling of stopping occasionally, I don’t force myself to shoot.
I found it at the end of walking around the city, but it seems that it was here when I came to Kichijoji.
Shops are crowded on narrow streets, so-called traditional shopping streets and bars at night.
There were lots of affordable lunches, and I think it’s a photogenic place with good light, so I think it’s a recommended area for walking around town.
At the exit of Harmonica Yokocho, there was a line in the Menchi-katsu.
I wanted to eat it because I like Menchi-katsu, but unfortunately I gave up because I couldn’t see the line and the place to eat calmly.
It’s fun to have an event like this ~
There is also an article on Zeiss Ikon Novar-Anastigmat 75mm with a modified lens similar to this one.
