"Nice lens...Good Lens...The bokeh is outstanding as well at the colors and contrast this lens produces, I use it on my D7000 and personally I couldn't see upgrading to the 17-55 2.8 because I really don't see how there could be that much of an improvement....This, and I have done a lot of testing, will be my 90% of the time lens for the D7100, a fine camera indeed.I can not yet comment much on auto focus capabilities as my style of shooting is not very demanding in this aspect."

Inspired by the original version of this lens from 1951, the black Nokton 50mm f/1.5 Aspherical from Voigtlander is a fast normal-length prime for M-mount rangefinder cameras. While utilizing the same basic lens design as the classic version, this updated lens incorporates one aspherical element into its design to help control spherical aberrations and distortion for improved sharpness and clarity. The lens is also characterized by its fast f/1.5 maximum aperture to suit working in low lighting and to offer greater control over depth of field. Its manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 2.3' away, and the 10-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

"Not Bad....A real gem...I use this lens adapted for micro four-thirds, so it has a field of view equivalent to 100mm on a full frame camera, so this is a short telephoto, perfect for portraits....I will qualify this by saying I've only used this CV lens on my M Monochrom (CCD version) but whether shot wide open or stopped down to f9.5 or f11, this lens is a very good equal to the Summilux."

With an apochromatic design, the MACRO APO-LANTHAR 65mm f/2 Aspherical Lens from Voigtlander will be able to deliver crisp, aberration-free imagery, even with the high resolutions of modern digital sensors. This lens is designed to work with full-frame Sony E-mount cameras where it offers users the ability to get close to their subjects thanks to the 1:2 magnification ratio afforded by the 12.2" minimum focus distance. It also boasts outstanding sharpness, helped in part by an aspherical element, meaning users will be able to resolve the finest details in their subjects. On top of this, the lens features a relatively fast f/2 aperture, which will enable the creation of images with a shallow depth of field as well as in low-light conditions.

"I love it....Killer lens....It has a solid metal build, impeccable color rendition, excellent microcontrast, superb bokeh, and overall superlative image quality... It also renders equally good as a portrait lens or as a 1:2 macro lens, which enables you to have a great deal of flexibility regarding choosing your focal distance....It is a 1:2 macro lens, and it does macro beautifully, but don't think of it as a macro lens, think of it as an all-round lens for landscape, portrait, macro, flowers, etc."

Featuring a slender profile and a slightly wider-than-normal focal length, the silver-rimmed Ultron 40mm f/2 SL IIS Aspherical from Voigtlander is a versatile prime well-suited to everyday shooting. The double Gauss optical design employs a single aspherical element, as well as ultra-high refractive index glass, to produce well-controlled, sharp imagery void of spherical aberrations. Its slightly wide focal length pairs with the bright f/2 maximum aperture to benefit making shallow depth of field imagery as well as working in low-light conditions. The smooth manual focus operation also contributes to controlling focus position, and both depth of field and focus distance scales are featured on the metal lens barrel to aid in pre-focusing or setting hyperfocal distance. This lens' physical design also features a scalloped focus ring to recall classic lens designs of the 1960s as well as afford more secure handling during use. Mixing the classic-inspired design with contemporary usage, the lens also sports an AI-S type CPU to permit in-camera adjustment of the aperture setting for faster, more intuitive exposure control.
