Regarding Voigtlander, I have evaluated the Ultron 40/2 and 58/1.4 Nokton (both the new "SL II" lenses). I've commented on both in my June 10th blog, and will be offering a more in-depth look soon. (Stephen Gandy of CameraQuest loaned me eval units of both).
Those two lenses are excellent, and the price is right. I like both for different reasons: the 40/2 is superb as a compact lens, perfect when you want to travel light. The 58/1.4 offers wonderful bokeh, and is very crisp (my first sample had a obvious problem, but the 2nd was excellent). Both are very similar to the Zeiss ZF lenses in build quality, and optical quality is very high, very similar to the Zeiss ZF lenses, though I'd rate the Zeiss 35/2 higher than the 40/2 Voigtlander.
I am tempted to get both, but they are not free, and I already own all the ZF lenses, so they would be redundant. Wait, no lens is redundant!—every lens offers its own “look”.
