So I may have an addiction, and I believe it go worst with the FF, I am addicted to the 50mm range. I own 3 so far, I just need the 50mm F/1.2, 50mm Macro, and the elusive 50mm f/1. Anyways, I have been looking at the vioghtlander 40mm F/2 and the zeiss 50mm F/1.4. I know all about the zeiss I was wondering if anyone has shot with the vioghtlander.

I have shot with the voigtlander. It is sharp enough wide open. The lens itself is very compact and easy to carry around all day.

Here are some shots taken wide-open:

I've got the Ultron II and the Zeiss 50/1.4 and I'd say there's very little to choose between them at f/2....colours, contrast and sharpness. Neither of them quite match up to the Zeiss 50/2 though....it's about twice the price of the other two and it's clear why.

The big advantage of the Voigtlander is its portability....about the size of a T/C and similar weight.....always worth having in the bag. It arrives with a diopter filter to turn it into a quasi-macro lens but it can't compete with the genuine article.

I have no complaints with it. Is only $500. Is close to the Zeiss quality. Is a bit wider. More like between 35 to 50. I find that 35 can be a bit too wide and causing distortions. 50 can be a bit too long. The build quality is good. Some samples. They are slightly edited to reproduce the cinematic effect. Shot with a 5dmarkII. I got the lens during the winter and so didn't have much interesting shots with it.
