I have the CV and it is one of my most used lenses, about 10% of the time as a macro. The bokeh, and superb sharpness, reaching a peak by /5.6 though very usable WO, makes it a joy for all sorts of subjects. The APO correction is real, and you don't have that striking spherochromatism the Z*100 is afflicted with.

Does that complete the set?

Still need the 85/1.2 Aspherical, a beauty just sold on eBay http://www.ebay.ca/itm/201050680231
But didn't have the $ in PP yet, so I'll have to wait for another.


Ah, that one was gorgeous and had a box. If my time in the Canon forum taught me anything, it's that the box is good.

Yes, the box is everything.... On that forum, the 50/1.0 in particular.
I just want clean optics and no dents because it intend to use the hell out of it.

Congrats! It's one lens that keeps calling.

Picked up a Fuji XF 27mm since they are practically giving them away. It should be a useful street lens, but we'll see.

Haha, I just did a google image search for the Voigtlander APO-Lanthar 125/2.5 SL and was taken aback by how large the lens is when fully extended. It's not large, just big boned!

To add to my new to me Mamiya RZ67 Pro II kit:
Brand new in the box, Mamiya RZ67 180mm f4 VSF D/L soft focus.
Can't wait to get this, need to order some film also.

Yet another soft focus lens, who would have guessed from me, eh?

Paradoxically, it's the smallest of things that excite native 1:1 macros to their fullest.

Thanks, I even see my old message asking for a Fuji XF mount version.
I now see they make a "universal" version, allowing one to change the host mount.
I will have to contact and make a purchase.

So, the USPS claims it was delivered on Wednesday, but if it was, it's either invisible or microscopic, or grew legs and walked off. I have gone and talked with them and they were going to consult my carrier and call me back today, but they have not yet.

Whew! The CV125/2.5 was Delivered today. No explanation of why it said delivered on Wednesday, or where it's been since then.

I guess they're going for "Eventual Consistency".

Anyway, the lens looks good (it's got a minor cosmetic issue but that was fully disclosed by the seller), I'll post a shot of it on the A7 perhaps tomorrow.
