Thypoch vs Voigtlander (Simera 28mm f/1.4 vs Nokton 28mm f/1.5)

March 14, 2024

The YouTuber Matt Osborne compares the Thypoch Simera 28mm f1.4 lens to the Voigtlander Nokton 28mm f1.5 lens for Leica Mount.


He took the Simera 28mm f/1.4 and his Leica M10 to London for street photography, and compared Simera 28mm f/1.4 with Voigtlander Nokton 28mm f/1.5 in terms of sharpness, bokeh, vignette, and color rendition.


The Thypoch Simera 28mm f/1.4 lens is visually sharper and has a silver nose, while the Voigtlander Nokton 28mm f/1.5 is cooler in color. The Thypoch Simera 28mm 1.4 lens has a buttery smooth background bokeh and slight distortion. Simera 28mm f/1.4 vignettes wide open, but is sharp enough to be used wide open. It is recommended for those who prefer a manual focus experience.


Matt Osborne recommends Thypoch Simera 28mm f/1.4 for reasons as follows:

--A more tactile experience -- there is a soft stop at 0.7m on the focus ring

--More sharpness to be used at wide open


Some sample screenshots from the video:

--natural transition from focus
