Do you have a link to any of those tests ?
Thanks
You can have a few users feedback on the flickr group:
Flickr: Cosina Voigtländer Color Skopar 20mm f/3.5
Here is an interesting comparison with a Zeiss 21mm:

This lens has a kind of moustache distortion (too bad the flickr user "james liam" account have been deleted, he had a good example of this).

As promised here are a couple shot I took with the latest member of my Voigtlander family; the 20mm Skopar. It was a particularly gloomy, wet, rainy, grey, miserable day but we did our annual pilgrimage to the Gogama cemetery to tend to the graves of my late in-laws.

I'll take some more pics in a few days when the sun comes back to Northern Ontario.

Just a shot of a homemade, wooden grave marker.


A bit more detail on this image of a cherub resting on another tombstone.

I like the Bokeh in this pic looks like it could be a very nice lens

Nice!!
this lens looks fun!
I was about to get one.. but got the FA 20mm instead (yay)

30mm-35mm is my favorite focal length for walk around

so 20mm lenses on crop frame are very very attractive to me , I will most likely get that one as well if it will get good reviews by you guys

PS . looks super sharp.. the bokeh seams harsh to me .(like most lenses in this focal length) but you don't get a 20mm lens for the bokeh any way

This lens isn't about the bokeh.
That job is best left to the Nokton 58mm, or even better, its big cousin the Lanthar 125mm; the 'Bokeh-Master'!

I promise I'll do some landscapes in the next week once the sky brightens and the clouds leave.

I'd like to see some blue stuff, like sky! Those greens are looking good though, did you do any colour adjustment?

I can't remember, but I seldom do drastic changes.

The skies have been no-so-blue here lately; lots of low, grey clouds and rain.
I am going to invest in a decent CPL filter for this lens regardless.

I took some indoors pics, too.

Decent enough for 400 ISO.

There ya go - blue sky, blue water and a red and white boat.
No color adjustment.
However, I do have a circular polarizing filter.
