    My used M mount turned up the other day, and this morning My new 40mm Voigtlander showed up in superfast time from Hong Kong.
    So i rushed out to use it on Buster and some trees. What fun ! a real lens again. I'm going to enjoy it !

    If I were a GXR user, I'd be shooting with lenses like this. The feel of a real manual focus lens just can't be beat.

    That is beautiful, I didn't realise what a great lens the 40mm is. Which camera are you using, and what is the equivalent field of view?

    PS. I like Buster also, he's got such an unusual look about him.

    I went for the 40 (for my GXR) because it is a big big saving over the 35. Crop factor makes it about 60mm I believe .
    It's the first manual focus lens since the seventies , and it feels great ! I've enjoyed today so much, if I could afford a wide angle and a short tele I'd give away all my af lenses. But not my nikon 1. 18.5. Because that's great too.

    I think the 60mm helped to give it the 3D look, plus the wide aperture, very nice.
