I don't remember anymore.
The first one was definitely with close-up lens.

Here are two more with close-up lens:

f3.5, 1/100 s, ISO 800


f8, 1/100 s, ISO 1250

I'm really interested in the close up capabilities of this lens without the close-up filter. Is it better than the SLI version or just the same.

Please post more pics taken by this lovely lens

Question about the difference between the SLI & SLII versions: what does the "chipped" SLII buy you (aside from the close-up lens and a different style hood)? I understand that the SLI works like an A lens, i.e., is fully functional in Av mode. Does the II get you more EXIF info or..?

In Pentax mount, the main difference is that the SLII can be bought new.
The SLI was discontinued some years ago.

I think Steve Gandy may have a few of the SL I lenses left. He is the distributor for them in the U.S. Email him and ask him about the differences in the 2. I don't think the "chip" is going to do anything for Pentax.

Scroll down until you see Voigtlander SL Series I 90/3.5 APO-Lanthar Close Focus Lens

very nice stuff.

Back to the close-up capabilities, what is the top magnification without an extension tube?

This is a "Close Focus" lens (not a "Macro")

The highest magnification without the close-up lens is 1:3.5 (focus distance of 50cm). This is the same as the SL version of the lens, and explains Cosina's designation of the lens as a "Close Focus" lens, rather than a "Macro". The highest magnification WITH the close-up lens is 1:1.8 (focus distance of 32cm).

I have the SL version of this lens, as well as the 125mm and 180mm APO-Lanthars. The 125 is a "Macro" (1:1) and the 180 is "Close Focus" (1:4). Of these, the 90 is probably my favorite, although it is difficult to say as they are all absolutely superb.

@blende8, those are great. So impressed with the resolution of this lens wide open, which is good since its speed was my one concern. The shot of those piglets is awesome.
