A month or so ago I reported on a chrome version of the Voigtländer Nokton 50mm f:1.5 lens that was passing through the shop stock. I am ashamed to say that I made fun of it for looking like a refugee from a the set of "Metropolis". The lens is a good performer but I considered the aesthetics over the top.
Two more examples of this lens have come in - these are in black. The appearance is greatly improved, and should you elect to take it out with your Leica or Voigtlander or Fuji or Ricoh ( with adapter ), you will have a wonderful street shooting lens. Discrete where the other was garish.
Build quality? Superb metal finish and smooth operation. Aspherical formula.
