Very nice!

must admit, I am tempted to get one to put on an A1 just to annoy people :-). I bought a Canon 40mm pancake lens (f/2.8) and put it on a 5Ds for the same reason. It freaks out purists, which is a giggle.

Thanks for comment.

Well, I got this lens because the MTF looked good, light weight and low cost (all that works for me).

Yep, the purist can complain about the whisper noise and focus that is slower than lenses that are five times the cost and three times as heavy.

I use the Voigtlander 50mm f/2 a lot (it is a superb lens on the A7R4), partly because it’s so light and fairly small (admittedly, I think it’s double the weight of this lens).

I will see what this one looks like in the store. Might find one going a bit cheap from someone breaking up a kit bundle.
