Yeah, I'm not gonna lie, i love the aesthetics of those lenses, especially with the (slightly impractical) metal focus ring. The new silver nosed Voigtlander 58 is a looker in the old style.

? The focus ring is the broad, black rubber(ized) ring. IMHO not impractical at all...

Or do you mean something else?

Ahhh, yes, sorry, I didn't make it clear. The oldest versions have a knurled metal focus ring. Looks great, very old school, but the broad rubberized one like yours is much more practical.

I really like the looks of the first guy, but think the second, like yours, is the best balance of looks and practicality.

The new Voigtlander has gone old school:

Super slick, IMO. Already really wanted this lens, the new aesthetics don't help my gear lust haha. I'll likely buy an already ai'd one like yours, though, and call it a day.
