I only use this one for my EPSON R-D1xG as a fast normal lens. I know it should be soft and it should have CA wide open, but they are quite noticeable. Remember I'm only using a 6 megapixel camera with it. Comparing to a DSLR lens with the same price, it's not as good.
I also own the CV 35mm 1.2. This lens isn't as good. Its also not as a good as the Leica 28mm Elmarit despite being a stop faster. However given its a third the cost of the Leica and half the cost of the CV 35mm its a good cost for performance value.
I have used this lens and also the . The images from the Zeiss lens had better contrast and color, clearly nicer than this Voigtlander Ultron. The Zeiss lens is smaller and lighter as well. I don't see any advantage for this Voigtlander Ultron 28mm.
I had really high expectations for this lens on my leica m8. But it was soft, had backfocus issues, suffered from sun flares, purple fringe chromatic aberrations, and was not sharp at all even at f/8 and above. It had none of that magic that Zeus lenses and Leica lenses possesed.
For the price, this is an amazing lens. I waffled back and forth between getting a Leica 28mm $$$$ or Zeiss, then settled on the Voigtlander. It's super fast and pretty sharp, couples well with my Leica M6. Solidly built. I've shot mostly at night with it and I'm super happy with the results.
There is just something classic about this lens beyond the full manual, and all metal construction. Picture quality is amazing, and I have had fun with it shooting video. If I didn't have a Micro Four Thirds camera this would probably be my favorite lens.
