Excerpt: I've only had this lens for a couple of weeks and so far I really enjoy using it. The color, contrast, and overall image quality is better than my Nikon 20 3.5 ais lens. So far no complaints! One thing I might mention is that the photo shows a rubber focus ring but mine was metal.
Excerpt: This is an excellent travel lens. It is extremely compact and very well built. Everything is metal, no plastic to be found. You could clobber someone on the head with it if they tried to rob you and the lens would be just fine.
Excerpt: Based on some reviews I half expected to return this lens. I have a demanding 36mp sensor in my Sony A7R and it can be fussy about lens choices. First off let me state I take pictures not lens tests.
Excerpt: I had previously had a Pentax system with some of their limited prime lenses. But I wanted to get back to full frame 35mm. I got a Canon 6D at the same time as getting this Voigtlander, a year ago. I get the advantage of a full-frame slr with a small lens.
Perfect lens if you've done your HW and it's the lens you want

Summary: A really excellent lens, for what it is. It's not fast aperture, it's not AF, and it's not razor sharp in the corners wide open. At this focal length, I don't care much about those - I have other lenses that give me a large aperture and I just don't care all that much about corners.
Excerpt: The sharpness and color this lens delivers are superb, especially considering how small of a package it is. For landscape and even architecture, it delivers incredible images right out of the camera. Distortion is there, of course, but it's minimal and easily corrected.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This was my 5th lens, and last maybe, of my kit. My camera is the 6D. I love wide angle but I'm not sure I really need wider than this.I shoot this lens almost always at around f/8. I most often focus with my my eyes, brain, and the camera numbers (not looking through the viewfinder).
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fun, HIgh image quality, Lightweight, Low distortion, Rugged, Strong Construction

Summary: very sharp lens even on the outer edges. i use it for landscape photography. i recommend it for any serious photographer who is particular about detail and sharpness. i use the Zeiss 18mm, Nikon 50mm 1.8 and 12-24 mm, the Voigtlander 40mm 2.0 and the 20mm.
Summary: I purchased this Voigtlander lens specifically to use on a Glidecam HD1000 with a Canon 6d. It is perfect for this application, but more than that, it has almost instantly become my favorite lens.
