A new lens to look out for in 2013? The new Voigtländer 50mm f/1.5 Aspherical Nokton in m-mount!

Among my collection of lenses for the GXR, my absolute favorite is the old Voigtänder 50mm f/1.5 Nokton aspherical in the Leica Screw Mount.  I don't know what secret sauce Cosina used to make it, but it really is a great lens for a great price.  I think I bought mine used at Adorama last year for about $440.  And no matter which lenses I bring, I ALWAYS bring along my old 50mm Nokton.

Anyhow, I just noticed that they will be making a newer version in m-mount.  I really hope CV somehow retains the magic of the original lens!
