Re: New Voigtlander 20/3.5 for Pentax and Nikon

Thanks for the links. Very interesting.

It looks like the DA21 has a competitor.
[It looks like the DA21 - period!]

I'm confused...

I thought voigtlander stopped making lenses for slr's a few years ago and zeiss started to brand/sell them instead? So do people think voigtlander are back making slr lenses or is my memory just plain wrong?

By the way looks like an interesting lens that may well be full frame (as per their past lenses) so I can use it for my film cameras as well.

looks like MF

looks like MF ... but fullformat!

MF on my Voigtländer 1.4/58 Nokton works great on my K10D.

For some reason CameraQuest doesn't list the 20mm yet but they have the 40 and 58. Very sweet looking; FF, MF, made by Cosina.

Timely that this should be posted now. I've been thinking about a lens in the 20mm range. Have done a couple sets of pics with my 16-45 set at 21mm. But I've also got the hots for the 58mm...

You've "got" the 58! Sweet! I'd love to see some pics if you have the time. On a 1.5 crop camera it should make a superb portrait lens...

If the price is 20% with in the 21mm is a great deal. You can use it on film.

Re: looks like MF

It's a great lens not only for portraits!

First, here is a portrait (with flash):

Then a landscape shot (Dachstein / Austria):

And finally, it makes also a nice macro lens, with a little help of an extension tube:

Yours,
