    Might be a good a good one if it's in the vein of the Nokton II.

    I hope this is a good lens. I hated d the 50 nokton and the 15 once digital came out. I have the 24 through 75 luxes but got them at good prices now they are all sky high and the 21 lux just not enough use to get oen and not enough money.

    Yeah I owned the 50/1.5 Nokton but I really only liked it for B&W pictures. The newest 35 Nokton version II is probably the first Voigtlander I've tried that didn't leave me with mixed feelings concerning the rendering.

    the 35 Nokton II is awesome. I like some of the 1.1 shots I get with the 50mm Nokton but it's more hit and miss and not nearly as sharp. Hopefully that new lens is more like the 35mm type.
