Two reviews worth noting: Nokton 25/0.95 and Heliar 75/1.8

The latest review of the Voigtländer Nokton 25/0.95 lens for Micro Four Thirds comes from Peter Lück, whose site I found recently and who regularly posts great reviews and articles about Micro Four Thirds and Leica(-related) gear, comprising wonderful images showing off his great photographic skill. Anyway — he praises the Nokton for its very good build quality and very good optical qualities, calling it a “gift” to Micro Four Thirds users, as compared to a Leica Noctilux or Canon 50/1.2 this lens is a bargain with an unbeatable value-for-money ratio.

The lastest review of the Voigtländer Heliar 75/1.8 M-mount lens comes from Ancient City Photography, the blog of NYC-based photographer Tony Ventouris. The new Heliar 75/1.8 has the same great build quality as the aforementioned Nokton (I tried them both at photokina — this is the quality we will also see in future Voigtländer products), and is also very good optically. The design is spherical, and thus a tad soft wide open, but there is enough sharpness to achieve during processing. Then again, you might actually want this slight softness when shooting portraits with it. Stopped down it becomes critically sharp.
