Voigtländer 35mm f/1.2 Nokton II Trickling In

The newly revamped Voigtländer 35mm f/1.2 Nokton II is starting to trickle in around the globe! The price in the United States is projected at $1399, and the (only) hood (the LH-8) is $109. The performance of the lens remains to be seen, but what we do know is that it's a little bit shorter in length over the old version with a revised optical formula. Also new is the chrome ring around the front of the lens, much like the Zeiss ZM line. More info available on the Voigtländer site.
