        Comments about Voigtlander 28mm f/2.8 Color Skopar SL II Lens for Nikon:

        Really great solid metal barrel, real glass, NO plastic in this lens at all. Oh yes, manual focus only but at my age...I was doing that for 25+ years on film SLRs before autofocus came along... so... no big deal.

        I use it on my Nikon DF for Architecture (buildings, cathedrals etc shots), candid street shots, general walking around on vacation/holiday shots.

        Great no distortion angle of view on full frame, fast exposure, flat as a PANCAKE for inobtrusive work. Would be good to compare with Nikon 28mm Ai-s, has anyone done this?

            Comments about Voigtlander 28mm f/2.8 Color Skopar SL II Lens for Nikon:

            I was looking for a lens to complement my 50 mm. I was craving for a manual focus lens and not made in China. It is small, lightweight, very low profile, and cute. Ideal for travel and street photography. There is vignetting wide open and mild CA at the borders at f/11 but can be fixed post processing. Center is sharp at f/4 to f/8. The lens' sweet spot is f/8.
