    i tried this lens on my ep1 late last year at photovillage in nyc and looked thru the viewfinder for 10 minutes , not long unuf to know it but i was impressed by it

    i currently have the 57 1.2 konica slr lens ,but the 1.1 lens has less heft and volume but its still big ,[its a rangfinder lens]the voigtlander might be slightly more contrasty too \

    its a newer design so perhaps sharpness is better wide open than mine whish is pretty good

    I bought this for my wife and by far, this is her favorite lens. Below's a link to photos she's taken with it on flickr. She uses it with her GF1.

    Not that often hanzo, as we mostly shoot indoors or at night. Only time she used the evf with it was when we went to the beach.
