I am surprised to see the 7Artisans 18mm F6.3 taking the top spot when it comes to third party lenses. But I guess at that very affordable price people just thought they might give it a try. it is certainly very compact. If you own one, let us know in the comments how you feel about it.

As far as cameras goes, only the Fujifilm X-T5 is able to squeeze into the ranking. I am sure the Fujifilm X100V would have been in there too, if only Fujifilm would have been able to ship it.

Disassembly – Voigtländer Nokton 23mm f/1.2

Yukosteel did it again: he disassembled precious camera gear :)

This time his victim was the Voigtländer 23mm f/1.2 Nokton for Fujifilm X Mount.

His conclusion:

I’m very impressed by the mechanics and reliable design of electronics in this Voigtlander 23mm F1.2 Nokton lens. The precise way focusing distance information is collected is one of huge benefits of true manual focusing Voigtlander lens comparing to focus-by-wire most Fujinon lens. All parts are made from metal and precisely machined up to highest Cosina quality standards similar to Leica M mount lenses.
