I'm guessing his English is better than my Swiss, OR, the translator blew a gasket.
Well, the Swiss do not have a language of their own...so they have to choose one to use.

I know. I have a Swiss-French Ph.D. candidate and she earned her B.S. in Quebec. Most people wouldn't catch that comment.

Hello, thanks for info,
Blessed is he who has them both
I found these two graphs

Carl Zeiss Makro Planar T 100mm f/2.0 ZF Lens Review. html

Voigtlander APO Lanthar Macro 125mm f/2.5 SL Lens Review

what do you think?

hello thanks
Between the two, I would definitely choose the Voightlander: it is apochromatic (and it is 1:1). It is also very good at long distances.

By the way, the person who has both is Swiss as well.



A side remark: just as there is no Swiss language, there is no Belgian language either

Back on topic (I hope!), former pentaxforums member lbam compared the two on a Nikon D700:
Clash of the Titan Macro’s The Pictorial

Could help?

He ends up saying the VL125 is the better lens, but they're both impressive.

The 100 WR is also a fantastic lens, excellent contrast, colour and sharpness, and very well controlled for aberrations.

Thank you for your reply, you devvero a nice comparison.
The voigtlander is in my research, but is not easily, and I'm tired of trying.
Zeiss is a great lens, only has a problem, it is not APo, and zeiss could think about it.


The pentax Wr lens is valid, but if it has the same risolvenza DFA series, zeiss and is less than the voigtlander.


The more defined among all 100 macro, is the Leica 100, but it is very expensive
