How noticeable is the detent or resistance to indicate you're uncoupling from the rangefinder when focusing really close?

Fred's quick comparison looks promising. Is it typical for other VM lenses to have a narrower field of view? I think I remember that about the VM 35 1.4 as well.


The CV 40 2.8 is wider than 40mm. Closer to 35mm.

And no, no-one suggest to compare the 40 2.8 to this new 35 1.5, even if the 40 is closer to 35.

There is nothing to indicate that you are going past 0.7m. No bump, resistance change, etc.

That's annoying. Thanks for the heads up though!

If you play attention closely, there is a very subtle click sound once the RF disengages. With my copy, it's around 0.65m.
One can only notice that in a silent environment. I wish Cosina would improve this in future lenses by adding more resistance and a clear distinction when focusing closer than 0.7m.

I’m waiting for Fred’s comparison against the smaller, faster, cheaper Cv 35 1.4 v2


I will do a resolution and rendering test comparing the new CV 35/1.5 Nokton to the CV 35/1.4 Nokton and Leica 35/1.4 FLE.

Nice comparison. For my taste the leica has a more 3D like look. But the bokeh on the CV is better. I am happy that I ordered the CV and not the Lux. For the extra money of the Leica I could buy something else like a used M10. I will do a comparison between the 1.2 and the 1.5 using my M11 … But still dont know when my 1.5 will be delivered.

My observations are based on this thread's samples so far. I have not yet tested the lens on the M body.
I did compare the CV 35/1.5 to the Leica 35/1.4 FLE briefly on the Sony. The Leica is sharper wide open (away from center) and the Voigtlander has smoother rendering + narrower field of view.

Here is a sample:

Is it possible the coma is just the shape of the leaves with LoCa/sa instead of actual coma?


Not at all.

Meanwhile only the Type II is available in Germany and it seems the Type I will only be available in January

Does the 40mm pull up 35mm framelines?

Your example is Typ I and only orderable. (1-3 weeks for delivery)
Only Typ II is available in Germany

When I ordered it, see above, it was "Lieferzeit: sofort lieferbar" so "available for immediate delivery".
I guess they had only a few in stock.

pmeheut is right, it was available but is now sold out. I ordered mine from a different site (Germany as well) and they only had one left in stock.

Yes. At least at 35mm:

Anyone received an update from B&H? They're usually pretty quick with new releases.

A few more from today on my M8.











PS how good is the color out of the M8? I'm blown away. Was taking these photos to have samples from the camera when I went to sell it, but these are making me think twice...

Would be great to see ZM 35/1.4 being compared as well
