For those of us who have IBIS.

Is AF really worth $600 and a 37% loss in light-gathering ability?

Is the Voigtlander usable in the f/0.95-f/1.2 range?

The Voigtländer 42.5mm is absolutely usable within that range. Using basic handling technique IBIS isn't necessary, it may be nice at times.

The 42.5mm is one of my favorite lenses. For me, $600 for autofocus isn't worth it. For some it might be. I'd still love to try a Panasonic 42.5mm.
