Voigtländer 35/2

I bet it is a nice lens as is their other 35mm f2. APO corrected lenses on such short focal lengths are overkill.

Ditto. The improvement might be pixel level improvements or not. The lenses are of different formulas, so whether the APO lens element makes a big difference or not might be debatable. We won't see the same lens with and without the special element. Many variables change at once with a new lens design.
I'm certain they are awesome lenses.

It will be a breakthrough lens if it's as good as either the 50mm f2 or 65mm. I will be getting one. Now I wish they would produce an APO-Lanther 90mm.

Well, there is this 65 and 110 so I guess there’s room for a 90.
I’d like to see an APO-Lanthar 28mm F2 ... ;)

APO isn't a lens element. It's the overall correction of aberrations of the entire lens.

I get a bit jaded by announcements of new lenses but my experience with the 65mm APO-Lanthar makes me sit up and take notice at this one.

APO lenses usually contain a very low refractive element or group. Sometimes ED glass or a Fluorite element. It is to make the different wavelengths diverge less after going from one medium to another.
