New lens!

Published May 17th, 2011

Last week I got my new lens finally!
After much confusion I opted for a Voigtlander 28mm f/2 lens as I REALLY needed something between my 15mm and my 50mm.

On my Leica M8 the voigtlander has a 37mm field of view which makes it perfect for reportage and up-and-close-and-personal portraits the way I like them.

The lens is mechanically fantastic, it's all metal like all rangefinder lenses and just silky smooth in operation.

The couple of test shots I took show excellent sharpness wide open and clinical detail once stopped down.

Overall it looks like a keeper.

More to come in my review once I get better use of it :)
