This is one of my least expensive lenses. It might be my least expensive lens. Yet, at mid-range aperture, it is objectively the sharpest lens I have. I mean it is sharp clear and sharp. Other than it's design and it's clarity, there is nothing really special about the colors or the rendering.

The only downside to this lens is that automatic zoom in for manual focus is not activated with adapter. You have to customize your settings on your camera and put a button (I use C1 on the A7rIII because right by the button to take a pic).

Recently been given a Voigtlaender Vitomatic I so I could take some pictures for a trip, found it so good that I got more of their current products, with this lens being the last. It is a fantastic little lens for the Sony Alpha 7 and their amazing sensitivity.

A spectacularly sharp lens, even wide open, with a wonderfully dimensional effect in its rendering. Reminds me of the best offerings from Leica. Ability to collapse makes for an extremely compact and portable package, although the screw-in lens cap on the dome hood is a nuisance if you tend to keep...

Looks even better in person.
