    Voigtlander 17.5 / 0.95 coming...???

    Still a rumour ...

    ....but nice. 12 or 14 mm would have been even nicer.

    Odd focal length to add at this point. A wider angle lens would have seemed a no brainer, & better seller.

    Or a portrait lens with closer minimum focus distance than Voigtlander's M mounts. A 35/1.2, or 50/1.0, would be sweet.

      A portrait lens would have been fantastic. 35/0.95 would have been perfect. Of course, there's the Zeiss 35/1.4 now, so, really, not that much need I guess. Whereas the ZF 18mm is an f/3.5, and the Voigtlander is f/0.95, so yeah, I'm looking at this new V pretty ravenously. That's nearly four stops faster... sixteen times as much light...

          I pre-pre-ordered it just in case the rumour is true .... am really fascinated by what Voigtlaender seems able to bring out, merging new & old school in lens building ...

            I have a Voigtländer 35/1.2 and it's a very nice portrait lens. Fast enough at F1.2 also.

              Did you guys note that it had the option to go 'clickless' on aperture by moving the ring forward?

                I think I'm going to get one (when they are available) and just tell myself it's 35mm.
                Sure have enjoyed my 25 f/0.95.

                  Not forgetting the 75 mm f 1.8 which is a really nice lens that I've started to like a lot. Panasonic should team up with Voigtlaender as their manufacturer of speedy primes.

                  Status has changed from rumour to announcement it seems...

                    ..... de-clickable aperture & 15 cm minimum focal distance. Yes.

                      Can you imagine if they were to then go on to make a similarly-fast and well-built 42.5mm lens?

                      Then we'd have the MFT focal length equivalents of classic 35mm, 50mm and 85mm lenses, at an absolutely INCREDIBLE price/performance level.

                      I vote for that next. Followed by a 14mm (28mm equivalent) and 50mm (100mm equivalent) lengths.

                        Steve ... both the Voigtlaender 50 mm f 1.1 and the 75er 1.8 are extremely nice lenses (and the 35er too, but I don't own that) ..... but you have to attach them via a Leica-M Adapter and the 50mm is a bit bulky while the 75er is about the same size as the 25er. I think Panasonic should be happy that somebody started building such extremely fast MFT primes and I do hope that MFT will earn itself a future beside the consumer level.

                          This is good news!
                          Just placed my deposit w/CameraQuest (where I got my 25mm 0.95).

                            Yean, I was talking about native MFT lenses - no adapter required - to match up as a "set" with the 17.5mm and 25mm lenses.

                            Would be nice, wouldn't it?

                              The logic should go as follows: 25mm 0.95 was a raving success for Voigtlaender. 17.5 mm 0.95 is a bit too expensive but the second true MFT lens with even more incredible features as the 15 cm minimum focal distance and - much more important - mechanics to click or de-click the lens.

                              If this is a hint to be detected in any way .... they really may go out to have a family of MFT super primes in the future. I dearly do hope so.
