Does anyone using the Voigtlander color skopar 35mm f2.5 version I screw mount L39?

What about the Voigtländer 40mm f1.4 Nokton (M mount)? Nice little lens! Good price, too!

From the B&H page

"Due to export regulations and/or manufacturers restrictions, this item can not be shipped to CANADA.

Please try searching for a similar item from a different brand or model."

Fortunately, Broadway Camera in Toronto does sell it - the only ones who do.

I think that BJphoto in Missisauga may also carry it.

BTW I didn't notice that Broadway photo has a store in Toronto; their website only lists 4 locations in BC.

I guess you are right. I was sure that I had been to a Broadway Camera store in Toronto sometime in the distant past. I don't actually live in Toronto but when I looked up Broadway in Toronto it came back with an address which is now a Henry's.

I just found this post that says that Broadway Camera was bought out by Downtown Camera.
