Voigtlander 110mm f/2.5 APO Lanthar - no LoCAs
According to Cosina it was one of the design goals to eliminate those so maybe it's really the next best thing to the old 125mm f/2.5

Sample images:

Hum but specific to the E mount. I wonder what changed from the 125.... Hum... bokeh behind the subject looks 'wrong' from the sample images.
They stole these 15mm! Smile
Maybe they needed it to make another 15 mm manual focus lens the world was so desperately waiting for.

Speaking of it: instead of burning time with ChCh, some of us would welcome a test of the also MF Irix lenses 15/2.4 and 11/4 - they come with EXIF and feature some interesting details.
You won't catch me with the EXIF argument. ;-)

Of course not - they would need to send you free samples like Laowa does Big Grin

But seriously, the quality is really nice and some features like the rear filter holder and focus lock are unique. Oh, and it features a spring aperture, imagine that.
We asked Irix for samples.

Their answer was that they are happy to do so ... IF they get ALL copyrights of the review in return. Thanks, but no thanks.

Well, that's blunt and rattenfrech! And it also doesn't help that the rate of first buy to sell as 2nd hand is better than with normal ChCh, you'd still loose some more money than the cheapos cost.
Just a though, you are always testing brand new lenses, most lenses are excellent brand new, however some deteriorate rapidly.
An example is Canon 18-135, brand new it's awesome however after heavy use it slowly degrades.
Testing used lenses would cost less, and give us a more real life insight
Clearly a job for our man in Lebanon! Go and get yourself a testchart, a couple of analyze programs and test the data of used lenses, see if the light burns out the glass, if the AF gets stutters and count the dust particles inside of each indivdual lens. Maybe you can find out this way how much one single lens was stressed and we can tell you afterwards how relevant that knowledge is for our lenses - being much more or much less stressed than your copy... If you want to get results, don't waste (other people's) time, just do it yourself!
