    It would be an odd focal length, but wondered if anyone tried this setup.

    I have to say, I actually quite like the 35mm (70mm equiv) focal length, idk why. Perhaps because the first lens I ever bought that could give me a decent amount of bokeh was a 35mm f1.7 cctv lens. I consider it a good focal length for portraiture indoors or in casual social settings, as well as environmental portraits on the street.

    Obviously not a voigtlander(heck, this lens cost me 35) but I've gotten some of my fav images out of it). So, obviously not commenting on that lense's quality, just the focal length. Here are some I took with the CCTV 35mm f1.7. Excuse the composition and grain, as I was just starting out when these were taken. I can only imagine what the CV would produce at f1.2.

    70 equivalent is great. I use an OM lens, which is a nice choice. Of the CV choices I'd actually suggest either the 35 1.4 or even better the 40 1.4 as lighter, cheaper alternates that are almost as fast.
