Is the Voigtlander 50mm f1.5 II the best 50 for film?

Yes. The 50f1.5 II has pretty nasty vignetting is you plan to shoot at big apertures often.

 

I guess I missed out on the nasty vignetting.  These were shot at 1.5 on film using my M5.

I don’t have to show any samples. Anyone with the lens can point it at a clear blue sky and see. That this lens has significant amounts of vignetting isn’t anything controversial 😀

Since he doesn’t have the lens he can check everything here

Like I said on digital with the profile corrections it didn’t bother me. That’s all I have to say about that.

Looking at that test I see your point.  I had not used this lens wide open at infinity so the vignetting never was an issue.  Interestingly the Leica Summilux 50 Asph has a 46mm filter thread compared to the 43 on the CV, and naturally vignettes less.

It is an interesting design choice by CV, and also why I bought the Summicron 28 Asph instead of the new CV 28 Ultron because the CV has a smaller front element and vignettes much more.

Yes, I had it coded to Summilux ASPH. 100000

The paint and application can be quite finicky, and if your coding template isn't exact it can do word things.  

Same here, I code mine as Summilux 1.4 ASPH and found that using an Inkzall pen worked better than a regular Sharpie.
