If these two lenses were put in front of you on a table, which one would you mount first on your camera?

And which one yould you actually keep?

For sure the Voigtlander. It is one of the best lenses available around 90 mm. Sharp from corner to corner already wide open, beautiful bokeh and good contrasty colours. And built like a tank that will last a lifetime. Only if you need AF you should consider the plastic Nikon.

Lloyd Chambers tested the Voigtlander against the D800E. It was superb (most Nikon lenses weren't able to deliver however). It seems that Nikon now has a body that is too good for most of their own lenses.
