Any idea, why CV announces lenses they can't deliver in a customer friendly timeframe?
I am waiting to buy their newly released Voigtlander 110mm f2.2 Macro lens. It suppose to be available in this month but it's been delayed.

Here is a quote from a website:
"July 2018

Koshina Co., Ltd.

Thank you very much for your patronage from usual day. As for MACRO APO LANTHAR 110 mm f / 2.5 E mount now, We have announced the planned release in August 2018, but due to the production circumstances of our company, Although we are sorry indeed, we decided to postpone the release date.

I guess Cosina is very busy with scheduling all of their product lines' manufacture.

That's great for Cosina, love those news!
But they should rethink about announcing lenses before availability and not 8-12 month before...
Which seems "normal" for them the last years (i.e. my Ultron 35 VM)

At least the german webpage has a release date, the 13th of September (this year, yes ). See here https://www.voigtlaender.de/objektiv...mm-112-nokton/

https://shuttermuse.com/f-stop-chart/

Seem f1.2 IS half a stop faster than f1.4. However, it can also be 1/3 of a stop. Lets hope the VC is half a stop , rather than one third. With 2 aspherical lens surfaces, and 8 elements, this is be a cutting edge lens.

I'm sure that I shall be swiftly corrected if I was not correct in saying so... but, here goes:

perhaps the photographer was talking about t-stop and not f-stop? t-stop, to my understanding is the light that is transmitted to the focal plane and not the light gathered by the front element (f-stop). When light travels through the lens elements, some of the light may be lost (?) so what might be f1.4 value of light gathered may travel and, as I say, some lost - ending up hitting the film/sensor actually a value of f1.5 etc.

Once again, take my advice with a grain of salt. I am not particularly intelligent.

Well, this concerns the amount of light that passes the lens. However, I think that the quantity of light that shines through the lens is not the main reason of existence of fast lenses: that is rather the small depth of field that the photographer can use as an expression tool.

A very attractive lens I must say. It can replace both the 50mm f/1.1 and the 50mm f/1.5.

I understand that there are two shades available for this lens, the smaller one is shown here.

Are there more pictures made with this lens available? I want to see how it handles straight lines.

Erik.

Looks like the price jumped from $899 to $1059 at some point over the last few days. Sigh.

Yes, the smaller one looks much better then the other.
It is the LH-8 from the Nokton 1.2/35 and 1.2/40

The other one looks like the elusive shade of the Noctilux 50mm f/1.2. That shade was so big that the well known photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson did not want to use it. He used the quite expensive lens with neither hood nor filter.

Not for me. I'm fussy. 50 = 1.4. Not 1.2 (not worth the cost bump), not 1.8 or slower. 1.4 = Goldilocks zone for a 50 imo. That said, I'm sure this lens is a little gem.

Pretty much the same. I will be buying at least one of 40/1.2 and 50/1.2. Not sure which one, not sure how soon.

Ended up picking up a(n already used!) 40/1.2. AMAZING lens, loving it so far. I was going to wait for the 50 to compare both but I love 40mm anyway.

I’m very tempted to upgrade my M-mount Nokton 50 1.5 to get this. Does anyone have both that could do comparison shots or anything?
