Summary: Excellent build quality (metal body). Nice metal 67mm lens hood (lens has a 52mm filter thread). Spectacular color and sharp wide open at f/0.95. Has an extremely long focus throw ring for precise focusing. Legendary Voigtlander quality and adds character to your images. It's my favorite lens!
Summary: Bought this for my 3/4 mount Blackmagic Cinema camera. Heavy little lens but solid and beautiful. Easy to use, sturdy mount. Love this for low lighting. It feels strange paying so much for something so small... but it does do exactly what you want and the quality is high enough to where I don't feel ripped off or anything. It feels much more solid than standard canon lenses.
Summary: The best lens I own. Works great on my gh2 and gh3. Hope to use it on black magic camera soon. Very shallow depth of field and super sharp when you stop it down a bit. This is the main lens I use.
Peerless low light performance on the M 4/3 system, gorgeous bokeh

Summary: This lens is an absolute gem, and well worth its price. One of the first things to understand is that this is not an auto-focus lens, and the aperture is set on the lens itself (much like lenses of yore in the film SLR days). Do not let that fact deter you from considering or purchasing this lens. On the Micro 4/3 format, Voigtlander's 25mm Nokton is the equivalent focal length to 50mm primes.
I love my voigtlander 25mm lens but the lens cap SUCKS

Summary: Guys this lens is just beautiful makes images look very film like and more natural less digital. Bokeh is just delicious. the only thing I have to criticize is the lens cap, it keeps falling off the camera making the lens dirty it really sucks for such an expensive lense this shouldn't be like this that is the reason why i give it 4 stars. *************Update 01/07/2013************** I still think the lens is very beautiful, I have the gh3 and the panny 7-14mm.
