    who buys this stuff?
    since 2013 i have seen one guy with a voigtländer lens out in the wild…

    ps: it´s VOIGtLÄNDER

    • Zos Xavius

      People that like great lenses and aren’t put off by manual focus. You know, the same people that buy Zeiss. If they had this in DSLR form I would be interested.

      • Tolot

        yeah but where are they? 🙂

        • Neopulse

          I’m one of them. Own and enjoy using MF lenses. And have had clients buy many MF legacy lenses and modern ones for photography and/or video. Zeiss lenses primarily though.

          At home practicing manual focus on their cats

    If this is as good as the Voigtlander APO-Lanthar 125mm f/2.5 SL, buying an E-mount camera to use with this lens is a no brainer.

  • Neopulse

    This might fulfill my desire for a 60mm Macro on my Sony after all despite it being an f/2 instead of an f/2.8.

  • Taffy Roberts

    If I was still an FE shooter this lens would be up on my list as an all-round/portrait lens. I love the idea of native mount manual third party lenses. As long as the price isn’t over the top.
