Voigtlander Ultron 35mm f/1.7
3

Does anyone else here use one?

I was mainly interested in near wide open renderings as a dry weather night walk-around alternative to the XF 35/2. At f/1.7 it renders lights like the XF 35 at f/2, but at f/2 it begins to sparkle. It's a sweetly solid and compact build, and it performs as I hoped (comparing reviews).

I also received the Nokton 50/1.5. Similar build/size to the 35/1.7. . . here, nearing home, I replicated a shot taken with the 28/2 (only, a few steps back from where I stood the other night [g]):

I know, I'm just a gear junkie.
