    In praise of Voigtlander's 20mm lens

    I have really enjoyed using this lens. Always in focus, no vignetting and sharp as a knife.

    If you are refering to the 21mm f4 Color Skopar Voigtlander lens, I absolutely agree. I paid three hundred dollars for mine (new), and it came with a view finder and a screw on lens hood. It is truly an outstanding performer.

    kivis is probably talking about the Nikon mount lens. But I agree, the voigts are absolute gems. I have 40mm and will never part with it. It is small, smooth and razor sharp wide open with a beautiful bokeh. It has this amazing quality of snapping into focus so MF is just a pleasure with this lens.
    I've been drooling about the 20mm since it came out, but could never justify the cost since I already have an equivalent Nikon. I'm sure it's worth every penny.

    Wow. Gorgeous, all the way to the farthest corners. I hate smeared corners. Those are awesome. The lack of distortion as well.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Looks like a great lens, good ultra W/A lenses are expensive and hard to find, I have a Tamron S.P. 17mm f3.5 lens for my Canon FD system that's also great that I love too.
