Pleasant bokeh!  While I don't think I could personally justify it given the 85 S, it does look like an absolute joy in the hands. I'm sure it feels much nicer than the 85 S.

Same first impression here. 2nd shot is most pleasant, and the whole set provides a pleasant sense of consistency. The wide aperture is essentially signalled by the shallow DOF, not by more or less pleasant side-effects (such as low contrast or blue fringing). Looks like it is a very good lens. LoCA is slightly disturbing on the 1st shot though (green fringes along the handlebar).

I'm also impressed by the rendition of the copper color.

The LoCA seems to be well corrected and the blurred white subjects in the fore- and the background look pure.

I also noticed that the focus ring has only the metric distant scale.  I wonder if the same model sold in the States has only the imperial scale?!

Thanks all, for watching and commenting. Nasos hit the nail on the head, for me this lens is a tool of expressing myself beyond my usual style of photography.

Very pleasant rendering, central sharpness is fine and smooth bokeh.

What a coincidence in the last image. I have the single of 'Toon Hermans' Vader gaat op Stap' on the right  ;)

I agree, nice rendering. So far I like this lens.

Nice story about the Toon Hermans single, John.

Thanks Tristin and Carl. Nature photography is not my forte but it was a nice practice in manual focusing with the Voigtländer.

The lens has a magical touch. It works very well with the Z !
I especially like how the foreground/focus area is separated from the background/out-of-focus areas.
I am looking forward to seeing more photos!

+2!

Works like magic. Foreground and background bokeh look equally good, no disturbing artefacts. This is where the otherwise remarkable Tamron SP 90/2.5 or Nikkor 105/2.5, for instance, are less satisfactory (Tamron makes FG bokeh look better, Nikkor is the other way round).

The mushrooms look like their are preparing a mass demo against the tyranny of angiosperms.
