The Voigtlander 35/1.2 is just too big (Why not consider Mitakon's 50/0.95 lens?). The Voigtlander 35/2.8 seems worse than the 35/1.4 at the edges (considering only f/2.8 and up).

The 50/.95 is nearly the same perspective at the Zeiss 55 (and I have that). There is a huge difference between 35 and 50 just as there is between 35 and 20.

I have the Voigtlander 21/1.8 and it's 421 grams. The 35/1.2 II is 471. That's pretty much my hang up with getting the 35/1.2 II right now . . . size. I owned the Voigtlander 35/1.4 and sold it to Zackiedawg when I bought the Canon 6D. I wish I hadn't sold it.
