Re: Voigtlander 65 users

Brilliant lens, but no substitute for a real macro lens.  Sharpness is incredible. I use it mostly in the close up range. As a portrait lens it is quite difficult to use. Focus is really smooth in the close up range, but as you get longer distances there are really very little movement in the focus ring. The Loxia 85mm is way easier to use around portrait range.

If it is going to be your one and only macro lenses I recommend a real 1:1 macro. Af or manual is a personal taste.
