Jedi Mind Tricks Aside, This Is The Lens You Are Looking for....

Summary: The build quality is definitely better than most lenses save for maybe a Zeiss or Leica. Now I have zero experience with Leica but I am familiar with Zeiss, and the Voigtlander is fitting company. I purchased this lens primarily for video, so the ability to have a de-clicked aperture ring is a welcome feature. Every turn of the ring is solid, and the focus is smooth. The lens screams quality when you hold it, and the weight of it lets you know it is.
Summary: Love this lens. A little soft at .95, but I've had several circumstances where I either need the speed or want the effect. Feels amazing in use. Can't really compare it to other m43 lenses, very different. Somewhat of a novelty lens wide open, but very sharp before f2 and up.

Summary: OK, it's a manual lens, but man, you can see in the dark with this baby and the bokeh is superb. Crisp, beautifully made; great for shallow depth of field but you'll absolutely need a grad. Excellent results off my Panasonic GH4 and AF100. Just a great lens.
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.
