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?

Why not throw the rather nice Voigtlander 40mm f1.4 Classic into the ring?

Smaller, quite capable and not too far away in the specifications. All manual and no IS of course but f1.4 is not to be sneezed at.

Quite a lot cheaper as well.

I had the 40/1.4.  Loved the looks, size, and build quality, but I found the optics disappointing.  Rather poor wide open and never really much good in the corners and edges.  The Oly is a much better lens for the money, IMO.
