I've been looking lately at the Voigtländer N and L cameras, and am quite taken with their style. Since I don't really own anything I wouldn't take out and shoot from time to time, I was wondering what others' shooting opinions are with these. I am strongly considering the f/2.0 Ultron, but perhaps the slower lenses are better?

I have a Vitessa L. I had it thoroughly overhauled by a retired Voigtlander technician, even though it was working OK when I got it. Added a lens hood and set of filters. Mine has the Ultron f2 lens but the Color Skopar f3.5 is considered the equal of the four -element Zeiss Tessar, so either would be OK.
Be aware that the EV the inbuilt meter shows is not the same as the numbers given by a Weston meter! Was using it today. I have two Leica F111's and take it in turns to run a film through each to enjoy and ensure they don't get tired.

I'm not sure which one I've got but it has no light meter and the ultron f2. It is a fine camera, but I always have to remind myself to to take it for a stroll.
here are a couple shots
