Anyone recently acquired this lens (Voigt Apo Lanthar 90mm f3.5 SLII). Care to share your shots/experience?
I am looking for some info also. I quess it has the same optical design which was outstanding but I wonder how the close-up lens is mated with it. The 40mm SL ll has the close-up lens aslo so I wonder if they are using the same one and what the results are. Quess I will have to do some googling..

I have been wanting to get another Voigtlander lens ever since I sold my Nokton 58mm. That ones on my list also.

oh my oh my oh my...I just received my first Voigtlander lens, 58mm SLII, and it's a gorgeous piece of work. Did a quick test in the last light and it's super sharp and feels great, very well made, perfect focus damping, easier to focus than my A50/1.4 and only cost 4x as much
Oh well, worth every penny I hope and just in time for a portrait shoot on Friday.

Well, partly thanks to this forum, and partly because Voigtlander is discontinuing their Pentax lenses, I've got a 40mm and 58mm on order.

4 views of a red flower with the Voigtlander 90mm SL 1 - there's significant loss of quality due to photobucket rendering, but you get a rough sense of how excellent this lens is:

I can't wait to get this outside for some street shots, but so far, as a low-light or no-light lens, the VL 40/2 Ultron has performed just as I'd hoped. Pentax MX BW400CN (at ISO 1600) F2.8 1/30. The F2 max aperture makes focus a snap.

Nice! Always eager to hear/see more about this lens (and the 20mm 3.5).
