The new Voigtländer is 1.5 stops brighter than the 20mm f/1.7 lens. The lens alone weights 410g and Björn noticed that “the camera be somewhat unstable held at arms length, reflections on the rear screen can make it difficult to judge the optimum focus distance“. “I’m still debating whether adding this lens will be a priority. On the one hand, it has amazing potential as a low light lens where you can choose to work with a relatively shallow depth of field. On the other hand, it’s quite heavy, expensive and automatic control of focus and aperture are not supported.
