Are you a big fan of Voigtlander lenses or do you just want to try it out for the first time?
Voigtlander lenses are wonderful lenses and have a level of quality that you can’t easily come by in any other lens brand.
If you’ve got a Fuji camera, Voigtlander lenses are wonderful on Fuji bodies, just as the Zeiss and Leica lenses – cool designs, wonderful optics, best Bokeh effects, and so on.
If you’re considering a Voigtlander lens, we have helped you to research some of the best Voigtlander lenses that are compatible with the Fuji cameras.
Please note that all Fuji cameras with a mountable lens are fitted with the Fujifilm X camera bayonet, while the compatible Voigtlander lenses have a Leica M bayonet lens mount. That means you can’t mount Voigtlander lenses directly on Fujifilm cameras as they are not directly compatible.
However, you need not fear, there are adapters that can make this feat possible. These adapters will enable you to mount Leica M-mount type lenses, like the Voigtlander lenses, onto Fujifilm X-mount cameras.
Here are two types of adaptors that will do the job:
i). Fujifilm M-Mount Adapter: This is the official adaptor from Fujifilm. Since it’s made by Fujifilm itself, it’s fine to expect perfection from this adapter. However, this adapter is a bit pricier.
ii). Third-party adapter: These are adaptors from third-party manufacturers. They are much cheaper than the official adaptor from Fujifilm.
These adapters are well-made, well-finished, and snap easily into place accurately without any looseness or over-tightness. These third-party adapters include Nikon Mount adapter, K&F Concept Lens Mount Leica-Fuji Adapter, Fotodiox Pro adapter

That said, here are 5 Voigtlander lenses for Fuji that are our favorite.
These lenses are different and we’re sure that you’ll find the one that’ll fit your desired photography needs.

This lens is a modern fast lens and has a sharp image quality. It has a very silky and smooth Bokeh effect – the effect of a soft out-of-focus background that you get when shooting a subject, using a fast lens. However, this lens has its downside. This lens is under-saturated and too muted in defused light.
The Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.1 has:

The Voigtlander Color-Skopar Pan 35mm F/2.5 is very similar to the Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f/1.4 II but with a very small body. The barrel of the lens has depth of field markings, which makes focusing and hyper-focal distance very easy.

Keep in mind that you would need an adapter to successfully connect or mount your desired/recommended lens on the Fuji camera – you can use the Fujifilm M-Mount adapter or any other suitable third-party adapter.
Our top pick is the Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f/1.4 II because it has all-around characteristics and it’s an outlier in its price range.
