Voightlander Help

Matsuyia have the 90 and 180 APOs in K-mount (new) for sale. How do they compare with the 125? And are these really better than PTX equivalents (if any)?

Any thoughts?

Thanks, JK

Posts: 149 also still has a couple 180s in stock and Stephen's price I believe is a little better than Matsuyia if I am remembering correctly.

I don't have the 180, but read a lot of good things about it prior to buying the 125.

Here is the Photozone review

I used to have the Voigtlander 90mm. It was a dandy of a lens - it easily held its own against a k85/1.8 and an A 85/1.4 at comparable apertures. If you don't mind the fact that the lens is a little slow I would consider the 90mm a very good buy. The only thing I will warn you about is the cosina QC. My lens came with a 125mm bayonet mount attached instead of the 90mm mount - so I had to send the lens back to the factory to get it repaired (worked great after the repair though)
