I received my chrome version of the new Voigtlander 50mm f1.5 today.
For those interested I took some random comparison shots with the M9 & 50mm f1.4 Summilux & C/V 50mm f1.5

Images did not upload please scroll down.

The CV 50mm lens's out-of-focus area (bokeh) is very busy on this comparison.
The smoothnes of the Summilux's bokeh looks a whole lot better.

Me thinks the difference in bokeh has more to do with a different background light situation and slightly different angle then with the lenses.

All in all: Very impressive new CV lens. Although I can still see purple fringing on the top of the helmet in the CV crop, it seems the new CV 50 has less fringing then the old model? Can you verify that, Mike?

Thanks anyway for the comparison.

Mike

The CV is focussed a little forward of the Summilux. You can see it on the painted thread of the body of the figure. Also the nose is a little sharper on the CV shot compared to the Summilux.

These are impressive though thanks so much for posting them. Some prefer the more traditional rendering bokeh of the CV. That Summilux looks incredible for it's definition and correction.

In this case, personally I would go for the Summilux, though, I just :eek:'d at the price of the CV. Amazing results for the price.

I don't suppose you happened to shoot some samples stopped down did you? I would be very interested to see it if you did.

Would the term "less harsh" be fair of the Summilux photos?

Thanks. Picture 1 & 2 show the CV's PF wide open is better controlled in the new version of the lens, but it's still not entirely gone, as it is in the Summilux. But I guess something has to justify the different price tag ;)

Thanks for this. May I ask if you applied any coding to either of the CV lenses?

According to Mr. Kobayashi the optical units of version 1 and version 2 are identical.

agreed. typical dirty bokeh that seems characteristic of CV lenses. the 35mm F1.4 CV i had showed similar chaos which becomes very tiresome after more use.....the main reason i sold mine.

Ok, I take back my comment on better controlled PF in the new version. It's the same crap.

:rolleyes:

The Lux has more detail and better, more vibrant colour rendition.

The new version has new coatings, I believe. Same optics but still going to be a bit different.

The CV really looks promising. Sure it has it flaws but for like 1/3 or 1/4 of the price? Thats a great performer to me! However....... Cosmetically, I dont like the design.. Looks very complicated..

The CV is a solid performer. Especially so given the price. Just goes to show how good that Summilux is though.
