Best 35mm Voigtlander lens for Sony A9/r4?


I bought the Sony Zeiss 35/2.8 for the size and was not happy with it.

A friend uses Leica 35/2 ASPH and the results are incredible. I have a 35/f2 IS for Canon and that was my favorite lens on it. I have the 35/1.4 Zeiss but want something smaller.

Since I do not have a Leica budget I am looking at the Voigtlander 35mm. I heard there were some types of 35/f2 Leica lens that did not work well with Sony E mount(i think 35mm up to v4).

Has anyone used the following lenses? Do they work on Sony E-mount, what adapter did you use, and how is the image quality?

Voigtlander Nokton Classic 35mm f/1.4 II MC Lens ($649)

Voigtlander Color-Skopar 35mm f/2.5 P II Lens ($409)

Voigtlander Ultron 35mm f/2 Aspherical Lens($749)

Voigtlander Nokton Classic 35mm f/1.4 II SC Lens (649)
