The type of photography that you are planning to use is an important decision factor. Here we have evaluated the Voigtlander 35mm F1.4 Nokton and the Leica Elmar-M 24mm f3.8 ASPH for their suitability to various photography scenarios:
Size and Weight Comparison
The size of a lens is an important deciding factor when comparing two lenses. Leica Elmar-M 24mm f3.8 ASPH is the longer of the two lenses at 53mm. The Voigtlander 35mm F1.4 Nokton with a length of 29mm, is 24mm shorter. On the other hand, the Voigtlander 35mm F1.4 Nokton has a larger diameter of 55mm compared to the Leica Elmar-M 24mm f3.8 ASPH's 41mm diameter.
