OMG, there is another one in Canon EOS mount on eBay.

On mflenses.com, there's a thread here that has been trying to guesstimate the production numbers of Voigtlander SL I APO's but particularly the 125. It seems that this particular EOS-mount lens has now been sold FOUR times in the past 2 years according to the compiler of the database,Vilhelm Sjostrom. He postulates that it's either a dud or sellers in Singapore are using it to launder cash around.

The highest prices (by some margin) are gotten for the AIS version, the reason for which was never clear to me since the EOS version is 1] rarer and 2] natively chipped.

Go figure.

All these high prices are ridiculous. If you are patient there is always one that will go for less. Case in point, a very nice C/Y mount went for US $1,163.31 on 7/10.

the nikon is the most future proof since it is fully mechanical and easiest to use on other mounts. perhaps that plays a role?

Sounds like the most plausible explanation

I rarely shot macro photography, so I wonder if the 1:1 magnification of V-125 is one big of the advantages over Leica which need teleconverter to get 1:1 and will loose 1 f-stop or more? Or it's not a big deal?

In fact, I own 2 Voigt 125. One brand new boxed and the second mint boxed. You can easily see the lens condition in my earlier post. It is as mint as they come!

I understand some frustration among owners of the Voigt 125 when it is knocked of it's pedestal. But the posted test of the lenses tell the story.


I had a chance to buy one of the on the B&S quite a few years ago for $600. I had the seller email me some samples and I also wasn't overly impressed with the lens sharpness, so I didn't buy it. At that time (and even now) I had about five other macro lenses for comparison. Its an excellent macro lens for sure, but not worth the going prices. Especially in light of some of the newer lenses like the Zeiss 100/2 and Sigma 150 OS (and even the non-OS 150 macro).

you don't need a teleconverter, just a tube. it's super nice not to have to unmount a lens to switch from macro to infinity or vice versa though.

Hell at those prices I would be tempted to sell my eos version for $1500. Not really related but what is a fair price for an unused eos 5d mk2 ? I tried 2100 on photo.net but no one seemed interested.

I think the Pentax and OM mount versions will go for quite a bit less than Nikon/Canon. You won't be able to use the Pentax mount one without destructive modification (cutting the aperture lever), which hurts resale value. OM mount will not be the most popular either because it may only be adaptable to Canon.

Got mine (EF mount) fall 2009 for just under $1300, I guess that's somewhat of a bargain today. It's a joy to use and I absolutely love the results. The only other macro lens I've ever used though is the Canon 100mm USM (non-L), so I don't have much to compare it to. I know I can't see ever parting with it. Maybe it's not the best at any one measure, but it seems pretty darn good all around (no major flaws.)
