    This lens together with the adapter (from Nikon F) is just about exactly the same size as the Sony FE 55mm f/1.8, except it's fully manual and faster. The lens is also sharper with more contrast wide open than any legacy normal I've used--which is excellent for focusing peaking. I greatly enjoyed using it on μ43, especially before the 75mm f/1.8 was released and now I'm even more pleased with it on a 35mm sensor.

    This is the lens that sold me on Cosina's Voigtlanders.

    Very nice work - #3 is my favourite :thumbup:

    I see a couple of shots that would perfectly suit the "holiday decoration 2013" thread ;)

    Two of my wife in a nearly dark room, just a small desk lamp. My max ISO is currently set to 1600 and these ended up being pushed another 2.6 stops in Lightroom, so equivalent to something like ISO10000. Can you imagine what Stanley Kubrick would have done with ISO like this?
