If you are speaking of the Voigtlander Color Skopar Classic, I have that lens.
Yes, it works beautifully! The only caveat is that it will require two adapters - the LTM to M AND the Leica M to NEX adapters. The Color Skopar is a screw mount lens. I was fortunate to find a mint used one sold with the LTM to M adapter included.
Go for it! Image quality and handling are both first rate. In fact, I like the Color Skopar, in every regard, much better than my Nokton 40/1.4 Classic.

You can find adapters for LTM to Nex directly. You don't need 2. Although there is a bit of confusion with the 39 screw mount. Some promote it as M39 and others as L39.
There is a slight difference between both (in theory, in practice adapters don't follow exactly and probably are the same). Copied from an other sites:
L39 or LTM: Leica std screw mount is 39mm X 26T per 1" pitch with a 28.8mm registration (distance film surface to lens mount mating surface)
M39: The Braun Paxette M-39 mount is 39mm X 26T per 1" pitch with approx a 44.5mm registration (distance film surface to lens mount mating surface)
As you can see, some adapters call them M39, others L39 and others both:
(I don't know any of them, so don't ask me which is best)
They probably are all the same , and will work with the Nex and your lens, but there are slight differences in adapters so it is always a try and miss.
