p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Experience with CameraQuest


Not sure if this is the right place to post this (if not I apologize). I just want to share my amazing experience with Stephen Gandy's CameraQuest.

I purchased a used Voigtlander 35mm f2 v2 ultron lens. When I received the lens it is practically brand new and I have been enjoying that lens alternately with my Leica M8 and M9.

I then decided to try out the Voigtlander 28mm f2 v2 ultron and I saw another used one from CameraQuest. When I got the lens I noticed that the focusing tab is wiggling but the lens and the M9 combo produces really nice image.

I emailed Stephen and within minutes I got a response that a replacement will be shipped the same day. I received the replacement today and I was pleasantly surprised that it is like a brand new lens (even the box looked brand new).

I just have to share this wonderful experience to anyone who might be looking for an alternative to Leica or Zeiss.

Now I'm just hoping that Voigtlander will produce a 50mm summicron alternative in the same style as these new vintage line Ultrons.

Thanks

I've bought cameras, lenses and adapters from Stephen. First rate.

His site is also an excellent online resource for vintage cameras, and more:

I've had nothing but good experiences with CameraQuest as well. I just bought a 50 APO and have been thinking about either the 28 or 35 ultron...

Stephen is the man, I have purchased multiple lenses throughout the years. First class.

My transactions with CameraQuest have always been flawless as well.

Why not get both 28 and 35 ultron. I did that and couldn’t be more pleased

Ditto to what everyone here says. I’ve bought new and used lenses from Stephen and he offers top notch service, quick shipping and is highly responsive to any inquiries. The used lenses he offers are always mint and like new.

I’m still harboring fantasies of a 35 APO-summicron… but the 28 Ultron seems like a no brainer to me.
