Here's a few shots snapped today. It seems this lens vignettes a little more than the Summicron ASPH, so I took a few shots to try and show the vignetting. What's the verdict? Acceptable?

Thanks Jon.

The vignetting perceived effect all depends on the subject, the colors, etc. Hard to tell from those samples ! But I'm still a bit surprised by the amount of vignetting which I can see here at f/4 and f/5.6. Shots of illumination test charts will tell later, no doubt that many will be available around quite soon.

Now that we live in the digital age with embedded or computer image processing which can fix vignetting very easily, I suspect that most lenses manufacturers will chose to produce lenses which vignette if it's an easy way out for distorsion, especially pesky moustache distorsion.

So, very recent lenses might not be such a great deal for the money if you shoot film, even if those lenses perform extremely well with digital thanks to the digital corrections applied after the light has gone through the optics...

Thank you, Mike, for those close-ups! The lens is really very good. Only a bit of flare in the last one.

Btw, I didn't see any flare in your pictures (many, many) with the Biogon 35mm f/2 in the thread of that lens.

Erik.

thank you so much for the images, Mike! Really appreciate it.

Would it be possible to show some images where the lens is mounted to both the sony and the leica?

I'm deeply impressed by the IQ but somehow I'm unsure wether I like the classic design of the lens or not.

I'm completely in love with my VM 35mm 1.2 II, the VM 35mm color skopar and the VM 75mm 2.5 Color Skopar.
But this new Ultron Asph is just so different...

or is there maybe eben a thread and I just did not see it?

A touch of vignetting is a pleasant thing, I think. These look good.

But I will have to wait for the special LTM version to come out...No M camera right now.

Erik, Predicolous, Oldwino, thank you for the kind remarks.
Erik, the flare in the last shot was because the afternoon sun was behind the subject and since she was much shorter than I am I had to lower the camera and tilt it up to get the shot thus catching some flare.
Here are a few more from the same outing.

It is hard to believe but corner sharpens on Sony FF looks to be more than acceptable in landscape photos.

Me thinks Cosina/Voigtlander have given up on LTM.

I would strongly prefer that they make everything LTM mount and bundle in their high quality LTM/M adapter. I'd pay more for it!

So would I.

Then I could use them with my Barnack, my film M's and my digital M. That would be ideal.

Best,

Lots of great images here, thank you jonmanjiro and Yokosuka Mike!

I wonder how this renders compared with the LTM Ultron f1.7. That lens was beautiful.

Hi all! I just got the lens! Out of curiosity, have you guys experienced seeing the same amount of grease showing on your lens as I have? In looks rather much as it oozes out like this. To be honest, this is the first new lens I've purchased so would appreciate your feedback.

Mine was similar. They went a bit overboard with the grease at the factory. I just carefully wiped off the excess with a cotton bud (Q-tip?). Itís not doing anything useful on the inside of the mount so you may as well wipe it off.

I've seen something similar before as well. Didn't bother me, and like Jon said any excess grease I wiped off.

Look for an Ultron 35mm f/1.7 Aspherical V1. That lens is in LTM. Great performer! Small size! Black paint!

My sample is coming the next days! Will post samples from an A7 and analog M. I can compare it to the summarit 2.5 and the Cron V4.

PCR, lmk if you had the same amount of (overwhelming) grease as I had.

It should look quite familiar to many ZM lens owners...

Ultron @ f2 on Natura 1600! Really impressed with its coma control. Its right up there with the Zeiss Distagon 35mm f1.4 and far better than the Zeiss Biogon 35mm f2.

Ha! Michael came around!
On his picture some barrel distortion is visible in the extreme corners. I am nitpicking here.

Am I the only one who would like to have a way to limit focus range to 0.7m? My M3 (that couldn't be modified to focus down to 0.7m) drove me mad with loosing rf coupling with "modern" lenses.

I understand that Cosina wants to sell those lenses to folks that use them with adapters on other mirrorless cameras, but a screw to limit the travel beyond 0.7m (heck, even 0.9m when they are at it) shouldn't be that hard to do, right?

It looks like Michael still has that Zeiss Distagon 35mm f/1.4 on his M6TTL. Did you convince him to try the Ultron?

Totally agree, I kept the ZM 35 f2 over VM Ultron 35 1.7 because of this, although I do believe that optically the VM Ultron is slightly better than the f2 Biogon

Yep, excellent coma control. Vignetting is also typically less detectible in these night shots. Thanks again, Jon.
