Anyone shot with both the Voigtlander 58mm f/1.4 and the Cosina 55mm f/1.2?

I have the Cosina 55mm f/1.2 now, and I've been wondering about the Voigtlander Nokton 58mm f/1.4 for a while now... read the reviews, checked out sample photos, and I know it's a good lens. Having both would be too much for me (too close in focal length, and I have the Pentax FA 50mm f/1.4 and Sigma 50mm f/2.8 AF DG Macro).

So I'm wondering, has anyone shot with both the Cosina 55mm (or under it's other names - Ricoh, Revuenon, or Tomioka) and the Voigtlander 58mm? The build quality of the Voigtlander and the KA mount are both appealing... how much will I miss the Cosina 55mm f/1.2 rendering?

I have the Cosina as well and came close to buying the VL a few months ago. Other than the VL panache, the main attraction for the VL was that it would work with auto exposure and PTTL. I ended up deciding that, given other financial considerations. it wasn't worth $500 at the time.
