Hi, can anybody share your experience between this lens and Zeiss 135mm F2 APO (classical ZF.2)?
...
110mm about 300g lighter than Zeiss with adapter.

So from image quality, color, rendering, bokeh, characters, and sharpness points of view, which would you recommend?


I can't answer to your question; I own both 100/2 Makro-Planar and 135/2 Apo Sonnar (both "classical" ZF.2), but no 110/2.5 AL.
The 135/2 Apo is wonderful however it's rather heavy, and I would recommend you to handle both it and the 110 AL before taking a decision. Sometimes I prefer my 100/2 MP over 135/2 AS to save weight.

One clear advantage of the CV 110 is that it focused down to 1:1. The Makro-Planar does 1:2, while the 135/2 does 1:4 I believe.

I have both the 135 and 110. I think the 110 is just as sharp but it has less CA and it has a different look to it. It is also definitely lighter!

On a Sony body the big advantage of the CV is full electronic communication, including providing distance information for full 5-axis IBIS.

True, but JJCPA isn't interested in close-ups:

Sorry, a bit late to the conversation. They are all fantastic landscape lenses.

Looking at the the fenced in 4 Acre American Chestnut test Grove in Autumn Color and into the distance. The American Chestnut had been a major constituent of the Eastern United States Forests until the Chestnut Blight in the first half of the 20th century killed most of the trees. Roots of the trees in the forests have been putting up suckers since that grow to as much as about 20' tall before dying back due to the Blight. This 4 Acre Test Grove is part of the efforts to develop and breed blight resistant trees to be reintroduced into the Eastern Forests.
Tripod mounted A7rIII and Voigtlander 110 f2.5 Macro Apo-Lanthar lens, FE mount; silent shutter.
ISO 100, f8, 1/50 second.

Rich, I think i've read in one of your posts here on this thread to own a Novoflex Astat collar. Does it fit the APO 110?
I am thinking of getting the 110 despite owning some neighbouring lenses (Batis 135/2.8, Sigma 105/2.8 DG DN and a 90mm APO-Componon HM adapted on a helicoid).

Has anyone noticed when shooting this lens in aperture priority with auto ISO, that the ISO never defaults to lower than 200? This is on an a7R iii with of course the Voigtlander 110mm. Only happens with this lens, not any of my other Voigtlander or Sony lenses. Is this by design?

I have never noticed this but no longer own this lens to give it a try. Sounds a bit odd though.
