    Very excited about this lens. It'll be interesting to see how it stacks up against my Loxia.

    Re: Voigtländer 50/2

    Don't know about the Loxia, but if it stacks up to my 65/2 or 21/1.4, it'll be sublime.
    In fact I'm more interested how it stacks up to its peers: the Leica 50/2 APO-Summicron M or SL ...

    Not a doubt in my mind that I would order one when available. Odd that Voigtlander doesn't provide MTF for any other lens.

    Thanks. I see this is showing in stock on December 11, 2019. I wrote B+H to see if they have it on the calendar yet.

    B+H says this is not yet showing as officially released or announced by Voigtlander. I know there's been a press release from somewhere, but nothing official just yet. Fingers crossed for next month.

    Re: Voigtländer 50/2

    I'll probably use my saved pennies first on the APO Lanthar 110, before spending it on this one.
    I'm sure it will be stellar (like all recent Voigtländer offerings) but I already have enough nifty 50's, some good, some very good and some where "character" surpasses quality

    You will not regret purchasing the 110mm. A stunning lens.....

    I’ve purchased all of my Voigtlander lenses (a total of about 8 lenses over the years) from him except one and it was always a pleasant experience.

    Just a heads up for anyone interested in Voigtlander lenses, CameraQuest is having a sale right now on them (Sony FE/ Leica M/ Micro 4/3 alike).
