Voigtlander Ultron 40mm SL f2

Item Description
This is a very nice copy of the Voigtlander Ultron 40/2 SL that I acquired via eBay a couple months back. I've been trying out a number of lenses that will be normal-ish on the upcoming FF, and this was one of them. Optically and mechanically, this is a brilliant lens. Compact, well built, the smoothest, most well-damped focus throw I've felt in a lens this small. IQ is superb. I am selling only because I need AF in this focal length range currently, as I'm mostly shooting moving kids. For anyone who enjoys MF lenses, this is a no-brainer as a normal prime for the upcoming FF (or as a short tele on APS-C). Condition of glass is excellent - no haze, fungus, dings, scratches, oil, etc. There is probably a speck or two of internal dust (there always is), but I couldn't pick any out when examining it. Mechanically, everything works as it should. Aesthetically, there are a couple minor scuffs on the front lens cap, and some minor brassing and coating loss on the body of the lens (very minor - the type of stuff that would only matter to you if you're a collector looking for an absolutely mint copy).

If you dig around for info about this lens, you'll find that it is apparently optically very similar to the Fa 43, with some arguing that the Voigtlander has better corner/border performance.

Sale includes lens, original Voigtlander front cap, Asahi rear cap (I'm not sure if this is original to the lens or not), screw-in hood, and matching Voigtlander close-up lens with plastic case.

I have photos taken of and by the lens, and can send links to anyone seriously interested.

We'll negotiate Paypal fees; shipping with insurance/tracking is included in price.

My loss is your gain!
