I got the Voigtlander a month or so ago.  I really enjoy it.  I recently came to Nikon from Pentax and wanted a 50mmish lens that could compare to my SMC Takumar 50 f/1.4 in therms of image rendering and handling.  I have been very pleased.  The lens is a joy to handle, the build quality is the equal of the Takumar (that is to say exceptional) and I am pleased with the rendering from wide open to about f/2.8, I haven't really used the lens stopped down more than this but I expect it will preform beautifully.  I have the Sigma 35 f/1.4 Art which I also love.  Based on the 35 Art, I expect the Sigma would be sharper wide open (no surprise) an give a more contrasty, modern look.  I am tempted by the Sigma 50 Art and my well get it one day as I see these two lenses as very different.

Here are a few photos taken with the Voigtlander:
