So I decided (impulsively) to purchase this lens after sending back the 7 Artisans 50mm f1.1 I had ordered just a few days before. I did not like the softness of the 1.1 which might have been a less than excellent copy.
Anyway, I really want a very fast lens with great characteristics but I'm not willing to spend the $$$$.$$ for the Noctilux, or at least not yet :biggrin:. For 1/10 or less of the Noctilux price, I thought I'd give the Voigtlander a try.
These are just sample images taken during nightly and daily walks around my neighborhood. Just street images, I haven't tried to seriously compose any portrait shots under good conditions. All were shot wide open.

Thanks for the feedback. I forgot to mention, the first set of night shots I did use LR to recover the darks because I had to under expose the shots quite a bit to not blow up the highlights.
I need to shoot some more with it to see, but it might be a keeper..... Now, to start selling stuff and saving for the Noctilux :D
