Specular highlights are perfectly circular at f/2.8 (wide open), f/4 and f/22. Love that.

The new Voigt 90/2.8 APO has 7 elements where 5 of them are made of abnormal partial dispersion (APD) glass. I'm expecting a very high resolving lens here. No aspherical elements for very clean specular highlights.

Will be fun to see this against the Sigma 90i, despite some differences. I like it has no aspherics. Canít say I prefer the look/ergo. The weight is greatóprobably be a hellaciously high resolution lens. Now, give us a 180/4 remake and 28/2

With the same 7/7 separate elements configuration in a very different design layout, it contrasts to the Loxia 85mm with the loss of a half stop and 345 grams (42% the weight!) and it's much smaller: 53x60 -vs- 95x62, so around half the length. Similar MFD 0.9m -vs- 0.8m (Loxia 85mm).

It looks like a modified VM 75/1.5 at the front with some rejigging at the back of the layout. More APD (5 -vs- 3) and it does without the rear asph element. Actual infinity FL is 88.7mm. It's also 100 grams lighter than the VM 75/1.5. I'll try to find out more very soon.

At 90mm, it will quite possibly (careful word choice here, 'once bitten twice shy') work well on E cameras, providing many with an even lighter and great MF alternative to the Sigma 90/2.8 - at the right time too. It will find favour with those who feel ergo matters, as it looks like the now-standard ring layout. Standard APO-Lanthar (light) tubular hood too. Good - if they don't very soon announce an E lens of APO-Lanthar design, this is what there is.

Voigtlander released the new CV 28/2 Ultron II a few months ago! Do you want version III already?

Yes, it would be interesting to see how it compared to the Sigma optically.

I am impatiently waiting for/trying to choose, a portrait length CV MF lens to complete my CV kit. I wish this was coming in an e-mount. So far every one of m lenses is native. I would love to continue that.

This or the 75 1.5.

Hmmmmm

This could be one of those must have MF lenses to have. Make a nice travel type lens along with maybe 2 or 3 others.

But that 28/2ii isnít so nice on SonyísÖI am guessing this will be quite good (on Sony).

This article indicates that Voigtlander designed the recent 35mm APO in two versions to accommodate the different sensor stacks of the Sony E and Leica mounts:

We can hope for the announcement of an E mount version--so how soon is "very soon"?

And I just recently purchased a Mint condition Zeiss 85mm f4 Tele-Tessar VM lens. Grumble Grumble.

I will have to decide what to do based upon the reviews and decide how much money I would be willing to lose if I decide to purchase the new Voigtlander.

That's definitely a sonnar-like design, too. So we can expect some lovely rendering qualities on that front, alsoǃ

We already have 2 versions of the 35/2 APO. (E and M-mount)
Their optical design is tweaked taking in consideration sensor stack thickness for better perform off-axis on both sensors.

I see, you mean a 28mm f/2 E-mount version. Yes, the mythical 28mm that never gets announced.

I don't think we will see a 28/2 M lens performing similar off-axis in both Sony and Leica M sensors. They will have to be different designs.

sell sell sell!

It's also a great alternative for Leica M shooters since the Leica 90/2.8 Elmarit was discontinued a while back. The new Voigtlander may affect the 90mm Elmarit's used prices.

Just pre-ordered the APO-Skopar 90/2.8. I strongly doubt Iíll be returning it as I did the Horrible Heliar 50/1.5.

Available for pre-order in Australia already? Not in the USA since it was not officially announced yet.
What price did you pre-order it for?

I might have spoken out of turn since itís supposed to be under embargo until this coming Friday. Itíll be somewhere around AUD1200 (about USD850 / GBP615 / EUR725 / CAD1040).
