    My M2 has been hanging on a hook in my living room for months now, mostly I think because I'm tired of the lens on it, an old Nikkor-W 3.5cm which is nice but has just gotten boring. I'd like to find another lens for it, 2.8 or faster preferred. Voigtlander or other brands welcome. I really like 35mm but would also consider a 1.4 or 1.2 50mm. And of course, the kicker, I don't want to spend more than 400$.

    yu can easily pickup a voigtlander 35mm f 1.4 for less than $400 on eBay. Cameraquest has one for $409 in an f 2.5 pancake mount.

    I've only seen the 1.4's go for around 600$, I'll check again though.

    Any one of these are excellent choices:


    C/V 35mm 1.2 ASPH Nokton M Mount
    C/V 35mm 1.7 ASPH Ultron
    C/V 35mm 2.5 Color-Skopar
    Konica 35mm 2.0 Hexanon

    Best regards,

    I have the Voigtlander 35mm f/1.4 and absolutely love it. Beautiful lens all the way to wide open.
    The Voigtlander 50mm f/1.5 is a beauty too. Draws beautiful pictures and is just killer at f/2.
    Don't neglect the Leica lenses too. The 50mm Summitar f/2 is amazing.

    I'd really like to get the 35 1.4 but have to wait until one falls in my lap. I did pick up a Nikkor HC 5cm f/2 the other day for a great price so that's going to tide me over till I can find a 35. Thanks for all the replies.
