Pros: Opening 1.4, size, beautiful lampshed, general rendering.

Cons: Diaphragm ring a little uncomfortable.

Opinion: I use it on my analog Leica CL and I feel great, perfectly proportioned to the size of the machine. Excellent full-opening blurry, soft but pleasant. As soon as you close the diaphragm by two stops, it becomes very engraved and makes a remarkable micro detail. As mentioned in the cons the only flaw is the diaphragm ring that needs habituation in order to be used intuitively. Nothing serious given the global surrender that makes me not regret the Summicron. I am very satisfied with the purchase even if I have not yet tried it digitally which I will do when I decide to detach it from the CL. Global vote 9.5

Pros: Weight, Size, value for money

Cons: Not comfortable the ring of the diaphragms and focus (especially vertically). Minimal focus a little long but normal for an optics born with Leica attachment

Opinion: I bought this second-hand toy for use with A7RII. It's the SC version and I have to say I'm 100% happy with it. I had buy Sony to attach all my vintage optics that have "character". At full opening it is certainly soft and vignette, but if you buy an optics like this maybe that's just what you are looking for. Without prejudice to all the "defects" in post production, they can practically be zeroed. Coupled with the A7RII I take it everywhere without being noticed. I travel a lot for work and in the last four years I have often gone to India, and shoot with Canon 5DM3 and a 24-70... don't go unnoticed. Next purchase the 21mm f4. The optics are old-fashioned, all metal and glass, rings absolutely as fluid as the old manual targetss. If you are not in a hurry to shoot without composing, and if you are not "addicted" to autofocus, I suggest it with your eyes closed.

Pros: Character, build quality and weight.

Cons: Position of the diaphragm ring... but just get used to it.

Opinion: I purchased a Nikon Z6 to be able to use precisely this type of lenses. Construction quality of the lenses of the past, only glass and metal, but despite this a feather weight. I immediately asked myself: how do you weigh 1/4 of Sigma Art while having the same brightness? The doubt is that it is performing 1/4 of Sigma Art. And here the surprise in this small barrel is enclosed a unique character. Of course, at the end of the day it is not a blade but just close a couple of stops and it becomes very sharp, contrasted, but above all unique. The photos taken with this little guy are distinguishable from those made with the latest generation of hypercorrect lenses. Pleasant and fluid rings even if it is necessary to make a habit of using the diaphragm ring that is placed at the front end of the lens.

Pros: Weight, personality, micro-contrast when standing on 2.8, off-plan even if closed. 1 or 2 stops, cost, versatility, size.

Cons: Build quality, edges up to 2.8, blurred quality for some looking softness.

Opinion: Taken to really.. 2 lire.. Before I blasphed for a ridiculous rendition on my a7r3.. It went from mighty to crappy on very simple shots. Then I.. Got the Voigtlander adapter.. Close up and.. Screwed in front and rear lens (if I was moving I felt TAC TAC). He's been a surgeon ever since. A. 1.4 is soft. At 1.6 The center becomes good and the edges seem less nervous. At 2.8 it becomes sharp and very micro-contrasty in the center maintaining a remarkable detachment at medium distance... Uqasi good edges on 42mpx se to infinity. At F4 it pulls off almost like 2.8.. And it's sharp. Much and 3d. At 5.6 It becomes an infinity blade. A F8 on tripod at night moves for surrender and Stellati. I'm just saying I had the 50 art.. Excelled. But flat. Obviously it went 2 times better but in the portraits at 2.8 this detached and so much more. I sold the 50 art for the surrender of this united to the weight.. And I wait for the TechArt... Focal length from 40 mm that if you get used to it is over.. That little shorter than 50 for reportage.. That little bit longer than 35 to make less deformed portraits.. Recommended and remember.. To be used only on Leica and Sony with BSI that have no problems at the edges.

Pros: High sharpness from f / 2.3 onwards, blurred, colors, atmosphere; Very compact

Cons: Wanting to rush there is a TA too little vignetting and a bit too soft. Minimal focus a bit long.

Opinion: Beautiful voigtlander lens I bought when I also had summicron-c 40, then resold because the f / 2 performance is almost indistinguishable. It has a particular rendering, its character that gives the atmosphere to the photos. Natural colors but saturated, no excessive contrast with shadows that are not closed as in standard lenses. The photos are very "plastic", both on film and on the sensor. The transition between fire zones is not sweet and progressive.
