Voigtlander Macro APO-Lanthar 65mm f/2 in HDR (must be viewed on HDR device)

It’s mad just how clean HLG HDR videos uploaded to YouTube are when compared to standard dynamic range ones. And a by-product of the exceptional local contrast happens to be that your lenses will for the most part look much more detailed in 4K HDR than in ordinary 4K. So while the Voigtlander is crazy-good – probably my sharpest lens –  I’ve already gotten used to seeing how great all the lenses in my collection look when shared to YouTube in HLG. It was kind of stupid of me to even get the Voigtlander, since it doesn’t focus internally, meaning it’s all but impossible to fly on a gimbal – but I just had to have one anyway. Because they feel so good in the hand and are optically superb.
