Cosina makes Voigtländer 40mm for Canon

I would like to remind everyone that Cosina makes the Voigtländer Ultron 40mm f/2 SL II for Canon EOS cameras. I bought a nearly new lens on eBay for around $370 delivered. They sell for $499 new.

It is manual focus only, but that is one of the primary reasons I bought it. Manual focusing on this lens is a pleasure, and it increases your attachment each photo. The build quality for the lens is excellent, as is the IQ.

I was considering the Canon 40mm, but I am extremely pleased with the Voigtländer despite the extra expense.

I added a slightly cropped, handheld photo to demonstrate the IQ.
