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.

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.
