Just posted in my review of the Nikon D800 is an evaluation of the Voigtlander 90mm F/3.5 SL II APO-Lanthar on the Nikon D800.
Anyone looking for a very high performance lens at relatively low price which is compact and lightweight should take a look at the 90/3.5. It is a manual focus lens, but is “chipped” for electronic aperture control.
Get one while you can, because it is apparently discontinued.
Given its high performance, this is one lens I’m likely to re-test on the Nikon D800E.
See my list of Nikon gear with in-stock status at B&H Photo.
