Well done Henry. I am fairly happy with the Voigtlander Nokton 35/1.4 when I need to zoom a bit over my Zeiss 24. However, I like the Voigtlander not for how it would do on a test like this because it would surely not do too well, but because I like the way it renders skin tones and how it creates subject separation. That being said, it's manual focus and I won't use manual focus for anything important (assuming a dynamic scene like a birthday party) and I like what I see in the Emount 35/1.8. I think it's living up the hopes that a lot of people had, particularly those individuals who didn't want to spent $1,000+ for the Zeiss 24 or who didn't want a main lens that wide.
