You set the focus by using a comfortable and fully functional ring with a working range of as much as 160 degrees. A clear depth of field scale on the lens helps with precise settings.

Voigtlander Color Skopar 28 mm f/2.8 SL II - Focusing

You should remember that even those users who are strongly attached to autofocus won’t lack it while working with the Voigtlander 2.8/28. The parameters of the tested lens are such that the depth of field is really significant. Even at the maximum relative aperture setting the focus at a bit over 9 metres allows us to enjoy a depth of field from 4.6 meters to infinity. By f/8.0 any focusing problems disappear completely – setting the distance scale at 3.3 metres results in sharp images in the distance from 1.65 metres to infinity.
