    Cons: Original lenscap not useable with the mounted lens hood.

    Pros: Smooth focusing, high built quality, nothing to complain about the imaging quality at my D7000. Low weight makes it to an nice travel lens. Stylish lens hood. Amazing image resolution in the frame center wide open, stopped down the frame follows

    Summary: I like this old fashioned approach to fotography. Manual focusing is much fun

    Cons: Needs to be stopped down to about f2.2 to get truly sharp and contrasty images but still useable wider open. Out of focus highlights behind the subject have a bit of outlining on it but not any worse than my Nikon 50 1.4G. Cheap looking lens cap.

    Pros: Great build. Smooth focus. Good contrast. Ultra sharp when stopped down to f4 or f5.6. Relatively compact size but hefty.

    Summary: A fabulous lens if you don't mind manual focus. Don't be put off by some older reviews that talk about it being 2/3 of a stop out in metering. That was the original lens production run. Voigtlander revised the chip before its 2nd run. Mine is spot on. I read a tip somewhere and bought a 52mm Nikon lens cap to use with the hood on even though it takes a 58 without the hood. Leave the hood screwed on (you have to pay extra for the hood) and use the 52mm cap inside. It works perfectly. All in all I'd have to say this is a very good buy for the money.
