Voigtllander Help

Matsuiya have the 90 and 180 APOs in K-mount up for sale (new). How are these in IQ in comparison to the 125s? And are these really better than PTX equivalents (if any)?

If Life is learning......when do I start?

My Cosina-Voigtlander 35/2.5 Color Skopar (Leica thread mount) lens is sharp and very well-made.
I too am curious about the quality of the Voigtlander SLR lenses...

The 180 APO Lanthar is an incredible lens. Below is a link to some photos, but there was another thread recently that had even better photos by people who have more talent than I:

John, if this helps you, I have purchased an expensive lens from the seller. The transaction went off without a hitch. I paid right after I won the auction and the lens arrived from Japan to North America a week later.

Why not buy from the US distributors: CameraQuest Home and The Photo Village, Inc.

I have no association with either other than as a satisfied customer.

Matsuiya store is a reputable store. My friend bought his Contax 85 there, and all went smoothly.
