I’ve tried a couple of Leica Summilux-M 75/1.4 lenses, but never bought one. I don’t use 75mm lenses a lot, so I can’t justify the relative high prices for such a lens. But now Voigtländer comes with a new 75mm lens: the VM Nokton 75/1.5. Without having seen or tried it, I can already tell you it’s probably going to be a good lens. None of the Nokton lenses that Voigtländer has released have been less than great.

The lens looks stunning and will cost 1150 USD. I think a bargain for a lens like that. I’m curious how much it will put on the scale. It won’t be light, but it looks rather compact (short, with a larger diameter front lens).
