Thanks.

So you rate the Nikkor Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S over both Voigtländers, parallel to the Noct?

Oh no. The Noct95 is superb. The CV-125 is great. The CV 65 is good.

The new 70-200 is very sharp, well enough corrected, and useful because it has auto focus and reach. I have had about all the early 70-200s, of which the FL version was the best. This never S version is better than the FL, IMO, but close. I have almost all primes, with few zooms. The 70-200 is about the only zoom i always want to have around because it is so handy. This new one is also very good, as mentioned. I don't meant o mislead you. I am mostly a close-up photographer.
