I do not understand why you have varying sizes for A B C. That is a bit odd to do comparison.

nice of you to provide these tests. maybe it would be better if they were resized to the same size and then also provide smaller crops of the large images.

are we supposed to guess which is which?

Sure, you can guess which is which, and you also can see something from these three big pictures. From these two pictures, you can find something special!

Note: In the second picture, I took at open aperture.

The left one shall be Pentax, gives you more detail.
The second one shall be Canon, and the third shall be V, I guess

I'm not sure what your point is with the tests, but if it's to say the Voigtlander 125 mm Macro is somehow an inferior lens I have real life proof to the contrary.

My copy takes stunningly sharp images with a dreamy/creamy bokeh.


...and I'm not parting with it any time soon!

He already mentioned it was on the right, which is the better pictures. I think everyone can go back to sleep now knowing it is the best, lol.

Dang, I have a massive resolution setting on my monitor and I had to use my mouse to move the bar to get to the quick response tab...

Anyhoo, there it is, the Voigtlander on top of some lines and numbers. You can see how much sharper the Voigtlander test chart is compared to the others (I kid, I kid!).

I shall now return to playing with my copy of this lens with my new found pride.

You say you tested some lenses.
There are gigantic pictures.
Now I see some groovy MTF graphs of lenses; one is other than the original 3 test subjects.
Help me - what is the point?
I'm sorry, but pointless measurebation drives me wacky!
I doubt if anyone would challenge that the Voigtlander APO-Lanthar 125 Macro SL is anything but a superior lens.
