Lenstips published its full review of the Voigtlander Ultron 27mm f/2 which you can read here or check out the excerpt below:


  • small, shapely, very solid barrel made entirely of metal,
  • excellent image quality in the frame centre,
  • imperceptible longitudinal chromatic aberration,
  • slight lateral chromatic aberration,
  • lack of any serious problems with spherical aberration,
  • practically zero distortion,
  • slight astigmatism,
  • sensibly-looking out-of-focus areas,
  • decent performance against bright light.


  • weak image quality on the edge of the frame near the maximum relative aperture,
  • very high coma,
  • distinct vignetting,
  • significant focus breathing.

This lens will primarily satisfy Voigtlander fans who want a small compact high-quality lens that accepts compact lenses come with compromises.
