    This lens was made to be shot wide open.

    Thanks for sharing! You're probably right, though I do appreciate the fact that my Canon FL 55mm 1:1.2 delivers insane sharpness corner-to-corner at f/5.6. (It's like having two lenses in one! ;))

    These look good! Any chance that we can see the full-size images?

    You took out the chromatic aberration?

    I tried to do it but I guess I missed some of it like on the top half of the second photo, esp on the bow. Most of the fast Voigtlander rf lenses have purple fringing wide open.

    Those are all processed. Does that make you want it less? :)

    Hehe, everything I shoot is processed. I really have no need for a really expensive fast 50, but it's always nice to dream. ;)

    I just need to share this with you... mine is on it's way... soooo excited... unfortunately I will be out of town when it arrives but I will upload some pictures eventually....
    Can't wait to see how it performs heads up against my Canon EF 50L... I secretly hope it allows me to let the 50L go...

    Just a quick snapshot of my daughter:

    DSC08261.

    Do you guys have a recommendation of a helicoid type adapter? I don't feel like paying $300 for the Voigtlander version...

    I'm still looking for an affordable Helicoid solution for this lens. Any recommendations?

    While $159 is much less than than the $300 Voigtlander, it still a little high for my budget. I'm looking to spend 100 bucks tops. There are a lot of Chinese ones between 30 and 100 I'm hoping to get some first hand experience with any of those.
