Voigtländer Ultron 40mm f/2 SL-II

I’ll readily admit to having a weakness for compact, well made manual focus lenses.  I’ve considered the Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 pancake lens to be an excellent value lens, but I’ve been disappointed in the fact that this first lens that was equipped with an STM focus motor doesn’t actually focus very quickly or smoothly with Canon’s modern DPAF focus systems.  Although the Voigtländer 40mm has been discontinued at a number of retailers, I decided that I would like to pick up a copy anyway and give it a try as a replacement.  The Voigtländer 40mm ups the ante with an all metal construction, beautiful focus action, and, of course, a full stop faster f/2 aperture and the ability to create more bokeh in an equally compact package.  That all sounds good, but is the little Voigtländer actually an upgrade?  Find out when my review launches in a few weeks.  In the meantime, check out my photos of this beautiful little pancake prime along with the photos I’m taking with it as a part of my review.  Here’s a careful look at the design, features, and handling of the lens:
