    Pictures will be coming soon. I have to scan stuff in yet.

    The bad nesw is that the Nocton lens had something snap off in it, and it jams now. But it is on it's way to B&H for replacement.

    I've used the 35/2.5 Color Skopar "classic" on Leica M cameras and found it to performs really well. I ultimately got a used 35mm Summicron but the Voigtlander 35mm is comparable in performance. Another outstanding lens and, IMHO, the greatest bargain of all the Voigtlanders is the 21/4 Color Skopar. It's tiny in size and big on results. If you ever need a very wide lens, look at this one.

    I've talked myself out of buying the R2 several times. I have too many cameras and not enough time to use them. I've been very impressed with everything Voigtlander has introduced. I'm sure you will be satisfied as soon as you get the lens problem worked out.

    When the Olive R2 first came out, and Tom A. showing me his, I did almost buy one. Now a few years later with 2 Bessa R3A's, I'm still kicking myself. But wait---there's the R2M/R3M now...less the the timer.

    (I prefer having a timer---they're handy!)

    I've got the olive R2 and I love it, it's the camera I always reach for first. The little 35mm Color Skopar Classic is superb and they make a great pair. My next purchase will be the 75mm. All the VL lenses seem great value for money, the only lens which people seem to have mixed feelings over is the 50mm f/2.5.
