Looks like a good stablemate for the Zeiss 21mm f/4.5c.

The head bartender's website Cameraquest.com has had the announcement up for awhile now. And he's taking deposits now I believe.

yeah, I tested it also at photokina, definitely one of the coming purchases ! I doubt i won`t give my 21mm:4 away, because it is just so sweet and small. Regards Jukka W

The pics are convincing, 21mm and F/1,8. What now: Leica, Zeiss, C.V. That F/4,0-21mm was already a nice lens but after my Photokina ........

I for one am really excited about this lens, ordered mine on the day it was announced and can't wait to get shooting with it.

I'm sure it will be another quality VC offering.

Cheers

Jason

I can assure you, it is not soft. Even at 1.8 it is remarkably sharp. Look at the license plate on the red MGB (that is at f1.8 -f2.0). I havent had a chance yet to shoot comparisons with Biogon 21f2.8 and f4.5 and the VC 21f4 - but weather permitting - I will try some technical Pan and various 21's - including the Summilux 21f1.4.

Looks like it has impressively low distortion for such a fast superwide. That's important to me as a film shooter.

Tom, any night time shots with the lens? I'm really eager to see what it does in dark streets

Voigtlander 21/1.8's IN TRANSIT

The new Voigtlander 21/1.8's are now in transit and expected to arrive after Christmas.

As anticipated the Cosina factory was unable to fill all of my order,
but some of the new 21/1.8's are still available.

Next shipment is likely several months away.

Thanks For Looking!

Stephen

All are at f1.8 or 2.0, ISO 640, the B&W files are out of the camera "vintage black and white."
Lovely images... I have been pondering this lens for the past couple of weeks too, ready to pull the trigger any time now.

Got mine few days ago and am very impressed with the build quality and how the lens balances with the camera so well, the fixed hood does make it a bit bigger than it needed to be, but it feels nice.

Sharp enough wide open, I really like the rendering and didn't pay attention to distortion at all. Close range shots below are at .7m, gotta do Tom's strap measuring mark for shorter distances.

Quite remarkable lens indeed. I consider buying it. I wish there were more posts here. Especially, after I saw http://www.flickr.com/photos/hhackbarth/11036232333/ I read this lens suffers from field curvature, but I wondered if this was common to all lenses or this was just a bad copy? I mean, in this example is rather obvious with the buildings in the right back became sharper while they were supposed to be more out of focus.

I think this lens is as issue-free as it could be. Let's look at the facts:

-sharp wide open, sharper stopped down (we're talking about a f/1.8 ultrawide here, don't forget that)
-mechanically really solid and well made, i don't see a difference between my leica lenses and this one
(from a small test it is sharper than the 21 summilux, both at f/2)
-very low distortion, not only compared to ultra wides
-vignetting is well controlled
-lens is really good regarding flare
-reasonably sized and priced for the specs

Given those facts I think this lens is a win in every way. It's not for you if you like it smaller/lighter and certainly not as sharp as the Super Elmar f/3.4 ASPH. Otherwise I think you can only take that lens from my cold dead hands...
