Choosing between CV 40mm f/1.2 and Distagon 35 f/1.4 ZA...
1

I don't yet have a lens in the 35mm range for my A7r iii. I was pretty set on the Distagon 35 1.4 but the Voigtlander 40mm 1.2 has caught my eye as well. I know the CV 40 has some CA issues wide open and, from what I've read, so does the Distagon 35 - but maybe not as pronounced. In either case it can be addressed in post.

I don't mind carrying the larger Distagon.

They both draw differently. I think I find the CV 40 a bit more interesting in the way it renders.

Which of the two would you choose and why?

FWIW, the other lenses I currently own are the G Master 85mm and the Planar T 50mm 1.4 ZA.
