Introducing the Voigtländer Color Skopar F2.5/35mm P II.

I’ve been experimenting with this lens for the last 24 hrs and, so far, I like it.  Small, sharp, smooth.  Its strength is in daylight shooting, not just because it is limited to a maximum aperture of f/2.5, but because of the way it holds highlights.

Images will follow — maybe in a few days — so you can judge for yourself.

Voigtländer always delivers great lenses, so I shouldn’t be surprised at the results.

In the meantime, feel free to re-visit my report on one of my favourite lenses, the Voigtländer Nokton 40mm f/1.4.
