Sorry for offtopic, but do you think clickless apperture is necessary feature for video amateur (weddings, events, occasionally music videos)? Thanks.

I can have Voigtlander 25 mm mark I (clicking aperture) for a quite nice price, or pay $240 more for clickless aperture. Is it worth it? Price for Mark I is convenient, price for Mark II is not. :)

I wouldn't say so - either i'm doing smth wrong(most probably), or it just goes that way BUT using aperture on the run still caused darkening in the frame for a few seconds - camera need time to respond to other light conditions, they don't change instantly.
In my opinion not, but i'm not a videographer.)

I see. I think it is necessary only for proffesionals. And I think this thoughts about buying another new lense Voigt 25 mm is only G.A.S. again :D but voigt 25 mm mark I for 560 $ new... that is good price right?

The "issue" I have with using aperture to adjust a shot's exposure on the fly is that you're changing DoF. IMO, it's very distracting to go from having a narrow DoF to a wide DoF while maintaining the same exposure. I'd much rather work with a variable ND filter so that I can maintain my DoF while equalizing the exposure.
