Yes, you are right, Christian, the 20mm 3.5 Voigtlander ticks some of the boxes...unfortunately its appealing pancake size (52mm filter thread) contributes to less than stellar performance (as I've read...I don't own one.)

I use a Nikon 2.8's pretty good on a D700, on a tripod at 8. 62mm filters...Nikon had an MF 20mm f4 with a 72mm thread so progress marches on.

What I am speculating about is a new line of landscape lenses that will be a good match for the D800E and the  other monster MP camera that come down the line.

Some inside the box folks think diffraction is an insurmountable problem.  They may be right but I hope not.

Inside the box?? That is just one big insult. That you have no idea about diffraction is your own issue, and you can overcome that by education. Diffraction is just physics. Nothing more, nothing less.

About the Voigtlander 20mm f3.5 SLII, you have read wrong information. It actually is a very nice lens, just with quite strong vignetting wide open. but as you are a photographer who likes to use lenses stopped down, that should not be a problem.

That is the only review I have seen (not much of a review really) that gives the 20mm f3.5 a passing grade on fx.  It has bad corners and bad flare.  I was really hoping that this would be a good fit on my d800 but it really isn't.
