I finally am getting another rangefinder (a Bessa R2 w/ the 35 f/2.5 PII) and I've been wondering how good the lens itself is. It appears that it's a pretty solid lens, but I can't help but wonder if it will be too small for my largish hands?

Ted, Here's a color shot taken w/ the older "classic" LTM version of this lens. I later sold my copy, but then regretted it and got the PII version.

Thanks all, the LTM version seems great, am looking forward to testing it out in a couple of days.

I also preferred the CV 15 and 21 in LTM. Had both 15s, kept the LTM, only had the CV 21, which I like a lot for it's size and rendering, but it does flare when shooting into the sun. If I used 21 a real lot, I'd probably try the Zeiss ones out as well.

The CV 35/2.5 PII was a great all around lens, but I sold it, because at the time, I had too many 35s, and the others were as good, and faster, but I still have a lot of great 35/2.5 PII photos.

I've shot a couple rolls now using this lens and my Nokton 50mm. I have to say though I wish it were a bit faster, I really love this little lens. It's quite a decent performer on film!

Thumbs up

I like the fact that you can shoot a brick wall with this lens and it still shows no distortion at all.

CV 35/2.5 great for groups

Terrific edge sharpness at all apertures. On some group shots I can count hairs on women's arms on the M9. Counting hairs on men doesn't count and isn't as much fun. Amazing that this puny lens does as well as any lens that I have.

I was only in town for a very quick weekend - not nearly enough time for me to take all the pictures I would have liked to. I would have loved to have attended the beer festival that took place at SLOSS the day before I made it over. Just means that I need to make a trip back there :-)

Someone local was offering an LTM version of this lens for $250 last year which was just outside my budget at the time. I'm still kicking myself for not finding a way to buy one.

Lovely shots all.

I just picked one of these up in Shinjuku tonight for a wicked price with a lens hood included (Under $250 USD). Feel glad to have gone to that shop tonight, I doubt that lens was in the shop more than a few hours.

Sorry for entering this thread without any photos made with the 35mm Skopar. I'm thinking about buying one as cheap and compact second 35mm and I'm not sure, if there is a big difference between the first LTM- and the second M-version.

According to the specs the M-version is smaller and lighter, but how about sharpness and image quality. Has anyone here a good comparison of both versions? Thanks in advance:

There is no optical difference between the two versions, as far as I know… I'd take the M39-version, because it's cheaper and you can use it on LTM-cameras, as well as on M-cameras…

That's what I thought, but the dimensions are quite different, so I was not sure. The size would be an important part of the choice. I'd prefer the smaller one, if there i no optical difference.

With cheap I meant as a really cheap companion to a Summilux, so 50$ difference would not mean so much to me.

Thanks for the answer so far. Any additions about possible IQ differences? Also I'm not sure, if the PII has a focus tab. The image on the Voigtländer site does not show one. Any comments to that?

Yesterday my new used Skopar LTM in silver arrived. It really is a tiny lens and I am very pleased with the image quality. The focus-"thingy" is really usable. Thanks for the useful comments here.

While I generally loved the Canon 35mm 2.8, the soft corners wide open weren't really my preferred look. I took several shots wider open and up close to see how the VC performed in my first roll with it. I'm definitely much happier with the performance.

Little bump for the Skopar. What a sweet lens.
