I was just drooling over these before. Especially the two faster/wider ones. I think it might be time to pick up a Sony a7 simply for these voigtlanders.

I don't forsee cosina doing the same lenses for XF mount - the crop factor really kills it.

That 40/1.2 and the A7R2 are freaking perfect. Hell yes Voigtlander.

Wish they'll make 40/1.2 in M mount. Looks very compact for an F1.2 lens.

I saw these lenses yesterday at the CP+ Camera & Imaging Show in Yokohama. They're all beautiful; I was particularly taken with the 40mm f1.2, compact, solid, needs to be on my camera ASAP!

I wonder how long it will be before we see a version VI of the 15mm for the E-mount?

Still kicking myself for not grabbing that used A7 at a reasonable price here on the classifieds a week ago.....

The 40/1.2 is interesting:
Unlike they are saying for the 35/1.4 ; not a reformulation of the M lens - so the bokeh could be quite different ; if it's smooth and the lens does not breath, the lens could be great for stills and video.
It's the weird colour scheme that freaks me. Every time you try to operate one of these weird black controls, which are labeled in black on a black background, a small black light lights up black to let you know you've done it.
