I don't have this lens, but did wonder what had happened to its popularity. When I joined the forum several years ago this lens (first version then) was all the rage. This thread has had little activity since 2012/13, and with few other mentions elsewhere it seemed to have completely fallen off the forum radar.

More recently, the tiny CV 35/2.5 and new CV 35/1.7 have eclipsed their larger 35/1.2 brother in levels of praise. I have noticed this with other lenses. Again, years ago, the CV 50/2.5 and even the CV 28/3.5 received little attention. Now, they are highly regarded. Popularity seems to change with time, but it also seems that some lenses take time to be fully appreciated - or fall from grace.

I think simple novelty is a factor. A 35 f1.2 lens was a novel thing when it first appeared and perhaps it just took some time (and the fatigue of carrying a big-ass lens) for people to get over that. When something doesn't exist, then it does, people can't help but gravitate to it.

@Yokusuka Mike - those are some really nice skin tones from the Sony A7II. How are you processing these? What program are you using for the raws? I've seen too many A7 photos with oddly sallow or grey skin tones that these are quite striking.

I think that the time has come for Cosina to bring out a set of affordable simple small 50mm f/2 and 35mm f/2 lenses in M-mount, without any distortion, preferably in both black paint and silver chrome versions. The Leica offerings are out of reach of many people now.

Erik.

Hi Archiver, the truth is that all my Sony A7II images are jpegs straight out of the camera. The only post processing I do is to adjust the alignment in the simple photo editor program that I use to view the images.

One thing that I do that might attribute to the skin tones is that I always shoot at the lowest ISO that I can get away with; preferably ISO 50 or 100. I read about cameras that boast of incredibly high ISOs, well coming from a film background I never shoot over ISO 400; it just never occurs to me to go any higher than that. My biggest pet peeve with micro 4/3 cameras is that most don't go below ISO 200.

Anyway, I appreciate your kind comment and I hope my response is helpful.

All the best, Mike

Good choice of the subject and consequent cutting of the image.

Nice photos everyone. Mike’s photos makes me realize how much I want to return to Japan for another visit.

I used to own v1, which was magic on my Epson RD1s, but didn’t seem to be anything special on the Sony A7R. I sold the RD1s, A7R and v1. I just recently bought a Fuji XT-2 and now own the CV 35/1.2 v2. I’ve only shot that combo around the house, but the XT-2 sensor and processing engine does wonders with this lens, at least to my eyes. I can’t wait to try to try it out on the streets.

Voigtlander 35mm f1.2 v.2 on Leica M (262)

I originally bought this lens with idea that it would be replaced by a Leica lens when I could afford it. Now, I'm not sure I want to part with it. I recently added a Leica 50mm Summicron v.3. I enjoy the 50 not obstructing the viewfinder but in my estimation it doesn't perform as well as the Voigtlander. I fear I'm losing my snobbery!
