The Voigtlander lenses are probably the most underrated lenses on the market. Anyone who has used them agrees that they are professional level and they never disappoint. I fixed my 25mm Color Skopar onto my Fujifilm X-Pro1 and I took to the street.
First, I have to tell you that this lens works beautifully on the X-Pro1. Being a 25mm, or a 38mm equivalent, it has tremendous depth of field. Manual focus is smooth and easy. It is unobtrusive and looks cute, sexy and businesslike all at the same time. I shot using the X-Pro1's black and white application. The results were fantastic.
Next week Leica will announce a black and white digital camera. For the life of me, I can't see how they will improve over the X-Pro1. With this Voigtlander lens, and the Fuji 35mm f1.4 lens, the black and white looks like it was shot on film. I am almost tempted to just shoot in black and white with the X-Pro1. Almost, that is. The colour rendition on this camera is far too good to be neglected.
At 1,000 ISO there is very little noise in any picture shot with the X-Pro1. I found that shooting at 3,200 or 6,400 ISO rears a slight noise that resembles film grain. This gives the black and white pictures a look of the thirties, forties or fifties through a Leica. Composing is easy on this camera due to its low profile. Once the auto focus is fixed, you have the perfect camera. it's probably the first digital camera with a soul.
