Lenstip reviewed the new lens and concluded:
The Voigtlander Apo Lanthar 35 mm f/2 Aspherical has everything that is needed to be called a top-of-the-range, premium lens. Its build quality is excellent, its optical properties – beyond reproach. In many categories it is able to outclass its direct rivals. Still high quality costs and, accordingly you can hardly call this lens cheap as you have to spend about $1150 on it.
However the high price tag doesn’t change our assessment which is very favourable indeed; in this case we feel such a high quality is worth paying for. When a lens comes with a long list of assets and is practically devoid of flaws we always grant it our ‘Editors’ Choice’ badge. We feel the Voigtlander fully deserves it.
