    Voigtlander 125mm f2.5 Apo Lanthar SL II macro is so sharp!

    This is an image I took earlier on this year. ISO 800 with aperture wide open f2.5







    Here is the 100% crop of the hoverfly




    The colour is rich and the bokeh is stunning. Good lens for macro shooting after all.

    That Bokeh truly is creamy. Looks like a very very good lens to have in your kit

    Great image, and my main interest is in the funky background.

    I reckon the highlight in the flower is just blown.

    As Rick said too about the bokeh.

    Legendary lens has a stellar reputation and this looks superbly good for wide open and ISO800 too.

    Is this on your Pentax?

    ....do I need to get an adapter to use it on my Nikon?
