The once-famous Voigtländer brand has enjoyed a real resurgence under its Japanese parent company Cosina, and now sports a large line-up of premium quality manual focus lenses. The Nokton 75mm F1.5 is the latest addition, offering a fast maximum aperture and a short telephoto focal length in a compact design.

Canon has proved rather prickly about third party lenses for its RF mount mirrorless cameras but seems prepared to license lens designs that don’t conflict with its own lens range, and there’s certainly not much like the Nokton in the Canon line-up. While the best Canon RF lenses are very good indeed, they are also expensive.
