    Looks beastly indeed! Hopefully it'll be a good performer for those who like to use MF in their m4/3's.

    About a year ago, I emailed Voigtlander to ask if they were going to make a fast wide. I'd already bought the three primes, but the lack of a fast wide bothered me. The SLR Magic 12mm f1.5 had quality control issues, and the Olympus 12/2 wasn't fast enough. Much of my work takes place in dark situations where lighting would be impractical or intrusive. I told them of this, and suggested that a 12mm f1.5 would be great.

    Voigtlander's reply was something like, 'we are planning to release a number of products in the future, and something there might please you'.

    Now they have announced a 10mm f0.95 and it's more than I imagined. Great work, Voigtlander. I'll be on the preorder list for this one.

    Yep, exactly like the other lenses. A bit soft and glowy wide open, and as it stops down, it sharpens up and the glow disappears. It will be a fine, fine addition to the kit.

    Just sent in my request to be on the waiting list. This is very exciting!
