Why I chose the Sony 90/2.8G instead of the Voigtlander 110mm APO Macro

The Voigtlander 110mm has four weaknesses that the Sony doesn't have.

1. It lacks auto focus, which I find helpful in many situations.

2. It lack OSS which I need for close work without a tripod and for video.

3. The lens body extends as you focus closer, which will disturb live subjects. This causes all kinds of issues when doing closeups.

4. Lack of AF and a focus limiter, disables all of the cameras neat features.

That is about it, other then the price is the same for less.
