Did you try and shoot video with this lens ? You'll be amazed at the results, believe me

No, I have not yet.

The lens arrived only last Thursday and I did not have any time yesterday, so today was my first day with the lens.

I must confess that I consider myself really a stills photographer.  I have not done much if any videos with my video-capable cameras.  It's a totally different ballgame.

But I must also confess that I have seen Voigtlander-footage and it looked good and had me intrigued.  Smooth manual focus really is the way to go for video.  I have even already looked up about shutterspeed in video (a concept that had me baffled, but I think I understand it now).

So yes, who knows?
