So Voigtländer is giving us a 21mm f/1.8 Ultron for $1,500 or so!

Question is, how will it perform (will it give the Summilux a run for its money?) and will it have any focus shift (as many of their latest lenses seem to suffer from)?

I was a little worried about Voigtlander for a while. Good to see they're going to continue designing and releasing new products for rangefinders. Hope this is their best fast lens yet!

If it has the magic of the Nokton II then I will be a buyer for sure.

Over on ClubSNAP, NazgulKing has posted a Flickr set of samples: Voigtlander 21mm/f1.9 Ultron saying, "It's freakishly sharp wide open at the center. Light fall out, even uncorrected, is not too bad. Though improves somewhat with the 21/2.8 setting."

Whole bunch of stuff in the (relatively new) Voigtlander Ultron 21mm f1.8 Aspherical pool on Flickr. Populated mostly by Tom Abrahamsson but it should start taking off soon as these lenses get out there.

Looks like it works well on the M9. Any idea how how it's being coded?

Some more samples, shot on an M-E are popping up in this GetDPI thread and they look good; no coloration, sharp to the corners stopped down (f/8 and even f/2.8 so far) and little distortion.

Looks like this lens could be a winner, so far.

John from Robert White just posted a video introduction to the lens.
