Hi-Res mode with the E-M1 II, ISO 64 and f/8.

Kind of a "meh" shot, but I haven't been out to shoot the city in a while, and was out to test out my 12-100 PRO but brought this lens along with me as well to see how it compared.

My copy arrived an hour before sunset on a dark and miserable day so I headed out into the village to give it a test. Both wide open because, you know, God wouldn't have invented f/0.95 if he didn't want us to shoot with it.

Of all the Voigts (10.5, 17.5, and 42,5), this is still my favourite by far!

This was one from my travels last year - Atlanta by Dawn, taken from the Sheraton downtown.

Just lately I completed my Voigtlander collection, adding the 17.5 and the 42.5. I shot with the former before dawn at the Yavapai County Courthouse, Prescott, AZ, while the Christmas lights were still up. The third picture is a stopped down, multi-image panorama.

Well, because I do this with every wide-ish lens I get, here's some samples of this one used on a reversal adapter, yeilding ~3:1 macro. Aperture set to f/5.6 and 1:1 center crops provided for each shot.

It's easily the best lens I've ever tried this with, the contrast, resolving power and lack of CA are superb, the flatness of the focal plane is... good enough for many purposes. ;)
