Other M's to look at:
Voightlander 15, Elmarit M 28, APO 90/100, or Canon LTM 100/3.5(just bought and I'm amazed at it's quality)

I'm leaning towards a Voigtlander myself, but find the array of offerings a bit confusing. I know there are:
* Nokton
* Color-skopar
* Super wide-heliar aspherical
* Heliar
* Ultron
* models "Lens for Micro 4/3 Cameras"

Yikes! I think the one I am looking for would be the Nokton 15, but I don't know. With an adapter (of course), would this be a good option for my 5N?

Confused,
Brian

The only 15mm Voigtländer I am aware of is the Super Wide Heliar Aspherical. The Nokton lenses are f/1.1-f/1.2 lenses, 35mm or 50mm.

Yep. Nokton generally means f/1.1 to f/1.5; Ultron is f/1.8 or f/2. Skopars are usually f/2.5 or slower. Heliars are all over the map, the wides are slow and the long lenses (eg 75/1.8) are fast.

Nokton = large-ish, heavy (for a rangefinder lens)
Ultron = medium-sized
Skopar = generally pretty tiny.

If you're looking for the 12mm or 15mm wides, you just get one choice of each though (Well, you do have to make sure to get M-mount as opposed to LTM thread-mount unless you want another adapter).

bhjazz, the Cameraquest website Voigtlander page has a lot of useful info on the various Voigtlander lenses - here:

The naming designations are not very relevant, just do your homework on the specific lenses you're interested in.

The CV 15 works well on the 5N, but produces the magenta color shift that many of the rangefinder wide angle lenses do. It can be corrected via Lightroom Flat Field plugin or Cornerfix, sometimes less drastic measures can correct the color shift, such as purple channel saturation and hue adjustments.

Also worth noting, some of the lenses come in M or LTM mount. Optically they're the same, but not always physically (obviously I mean aside from the mount). For example, I specifically purchased the LTM version of the 15mm because it's more compact and 39mm filters can be sort of rigged up to fit snugly inside the tiny built in hood.

Other CV lenses, such as the Lanthar 90 (works great on the 5N by the way) never came in M mount.

An image from a personal trainer today. I am doing some work for them on their website and needed some 'stock' type images.

Beautiful shots. Whether the 5N color shifts/vignettes or not seems to be hit-or-miss. Mine and Jacob Ds do, yours appears not to. No idea why some do and some don't. [shrug]

That's some wicked cool lens flare in this one.

Nice. More great information. Thanks again. I'll look in to the Cameraquest site and smarten myself up. To be clear, the cv15 with an adapter will work like a 24mm lens, correct?

15 x 1.5= 22.5mm FOV

The 15 is an excellent lens, I just find it a pain to fix the corners on my NEX-7, so it's not used as much as I want to use it, maybe on my next camera.

Great shot and treatment, Jim! Looks very statuesque.
