Default Voigtländer Color Skopar 21mm f/4,0 on Nikon DSLR?

Anyone have experience with that combination?
Have an offer for a used Voigtländer Color Skopar 21mm f/4,0 for Nikon (bayonett).

... and want to know if anyone has this lens, or has experience using this lens on any Nikon DSLR.

Want to try it on a D750 as a "Street Photo"-gear with manual fokus set to 3 m and f/5.6 or therabout, and let the camera decide the shutter speed (with Auto-ISO), since both fokus AND aperture are manual on this lens.

Any thoughts on this combination?

Best regards,


P.S.: I tried to Google this combination (Voigtländer lens on Nikon DSLR) but nothing showed up...!

P.P.S.: There is a review of the lens by Ken Rockwell, but the review is for this lens ON Leica-cameras and not on Nikon DSLR's

While I can't help with your question, I did want to thank you for providing the link to your photos.

Hope you have found the answers.


So you want to be a better photographer? Open your eyes and take a look at what is all around you.

Hi Zig-123!

Thank you for Your kind comments. It's all right, the lens in question was sold the day after, to someone else anyway...and I think it's always best to stick to the same brand lens-camera, for least problems.

Me too, I looked up Your Portfolio and enjoyed many of Your great Pictures, where I especially liked the one's from "Figawi Race 2013-14" - being an "Old Salt" myself, an ex sailor, with many seamiles under my keel! Very good sailboat-pictures with lots of good moods and weather!

Thanks for the show!

Best regards from Norway,
