    That’s it. Selling my Contax G2 and getting a Zeiss Ikon. This is freaking awesome! I LOVE cosina voigtlander!

    … same size as Leica SX 21 (Länge: 66 / 77 mm (ohne/mit Gegenlichtblende) Größter Durchmesser: ca. 69,5 mm), but nearyl one stop “slower”, or 2/3ds.. the biggest advantage could be the interesting price..

      Nonetheless it’s the second fasted 21mm lens ever produced for 135 format.

      Of course the biggest selling point is the price – the summilux is priced at $6,995. That’s what you’re gonna pay for that extra 2/3 stop.

    interesting, 21mm is an interesting focal for talented street photographers.
    I am not very talented, so I just use my Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 for landscape, the boring stuff 😛

    and ZeissRumors is rumoring a ZM 1.8/25mm

      Well it’s “ZR’s prediction”, based on fantasy.

    Kobayashi-san, could you please reintroduce the 50mm viewfinder, please?

    • You mean the Kontur?

      • Regular

        No the recent round viewfinder, with 50mm frame and very right glass.

  • Very nice I wonder whether this lens has a spherical or flat focal plane.
