Just bought a Voigtländer 65/2 APO Lanthar

Hi,

I just bought a Voigtländer 65/2 APO Lanthar.

First I did Jim Kasson's screening test. That test is intended to ensure that the lens doesn't have serious assembly issues or transport damage. Also, it can serve as a reference to see that the lens still performs in the future.

Jim's description of the test is here: https://blog.kasson.com/lens-screening-testing/

These are my targets representing corners, edges and center at f/2. Jim would probably prefer larger test targets. What I think it demonstrates is that the lens works reasonably well.

Here is a real world image, shot at f/4.

This a manual focus lens. Focusing is smooth and it snaps clearly in and out of focus.

Best regards

Erik
