for me a 40 is a typical street or a discrete portrait lens with environment.
therefore it should a pancake and no lightmonster.

What a pity that they did not not pimp there existing 40mm 1.4 or 40mm 2.0.

Hmm the existing 1.4/40 would need t pimped out of existence to be other than a ,character' lens.....

And the 2/40 is designed for a mirror box, so no design based on it makes s sense on mirrorless.

So they had to design from scratch. Whether f1.2 was a good idea will depend on whether the f1.2 performance is decent, and if not much price is paid for that in stopped down performance. If both of those things I'm happy with f1.2 and a bit of extra bulk, though I can totally see why some would prefer smaller and f2 (It's usually me that's arguing for smaller slower and better!)

Yeah, all the shots so far were from CP+ where Cosina had some samples for trials, but that ended on 2/26.


Yes, but wouldn't there have been lots and lots of people trying them on their own cameras, and then put up samples on the internet? That's what usually happens, but this time there seem to have been like ~3 people and non of them shot anything that really could tell much about the lenses.

I'm most intrigued by the 40/1.4 but not only for it's wide open performance but stopped down for landscapes.

+1

Needs to be decent wide open, but excellent by f/2.8 or so and it would be a keeper for me.

The lenses were only available for testing at Cosina Voigtländer area's counter at CP+ and couldn't be taken away more than a few meters, and there wasn't much to shoot there, so that's why nobody could really take very representative samples. And I think since the show was in Yokohama Japan, most general visitors were Japanese and would only post something in Japanese media and social media sites right at the time of CP+, not so much in international Camera forums...

If you Google search for reports in Japanese e.g. by using Voigtländer name written in Japanese with some CP+ related keywords, you could see more hits from Japanese media / social media:
