yeah, my tests on the m9 and 24mp UT didn't show that strong a difference surprisingly in midzone. It was there but pretty tiny (the zm had a bit of one too). the 1/3 clicks really bugged me on the vm and blue/yellow colors always looked a little weird (i have this issue with most voigtlanders). i probably prefer the FLE overall for haptics and look, but the zm has a distinctive look that i would sometimes prefer. just looking at sharpness i think the vm is the winner though and the difference in bokeh are pretty small between it

It's a noticeable difference on the M10-R or A7R II UT. (I will find some crops)
All lenses look great on the 18MP M9.

I agree on rendering though, they are not that different except that the Leica FLE has bit more outlining at f/1.4 and lower optical vignetting.

Did you buy the chrome or black? I really wanted the chrome (brass) but it's so much heavier.


Black because I prefer the lens to be a little more discrete than shiny chrome. I have the silver 50 Lux ASPH and it sure feels like a solid hunk of metal and glass. A photographer friend always gets a kick out of holding it because the unexpected weight relative to its size. One such lens is enough for my walk-around kit.

I still own this lens and although do not use it much after buying the FLE and pre-asph, I don't have the courage to sell it. IMO, it's one of the best 35mm lenses for the M-mount.

I think it is indeed one of the finest 35mm lens in M system and I still keep it as you do.
It is indeed excellent lens with impressive sharpness for all around purpose.

I have to say that even with the recent 35mm M-mount releases, the Voigtlander 35mm f/1.7 Ultron is still my top choice for the Leica M body and it's too bad it was discontinued. If you can find one new or used, I highly recommend it. It's compact, well-built, superb optically and has great rendering.

On the Leica M or Sony Kolari UT, it's capable of high resolution and contrast from f/1.7 across the entire image field. It's just as good, if not better, than our best 35mm M lenses like the Zeiss 35/1.4 ZM and Voigtlander 35/2 APO. It's

Hi,Fred,
whenyou say"...other than the SL system which does much better but still not optimal for this lens.",what performance does the lens on SL fail you? sharpness across-frame? corner IQ? field curvature? is it very visible?
I am thinking of buying this lens for my SL2-s and thinking about the image quality that I may get on my camera.

I think this CV 35/1.7 is gem for either M, or L, or Sony FE with PCX 5m.
