Re: Voigtlander 58mm f/1.4 SL II

I've only had the 21 a very short while and have been slack and not getting out a great deal with it.. But from what I have used, I have discovered it is by far the sharpest lens I own(have owned) and I'm using it in a way I did not expect(however I shouldn't find it surprising as this is practically my main way of shooting) in that I'm getting realllllly close to my subjects.
The 21 is awesome up close..

I want a longer makro to come out as I feel the 100 is too close to 85.. And I know this is silly emotional nonsense.. I feel that getting my hands on the hundy will detract from my usage/love for the 85.. And I don't want anything to come between me and my 85

I don't really know what to put here.. so I'll just say 'Hi.' and errr.. '.. Bye.'
