    A real bargain 'old school' optic that has fantastic imaging; the Canon 35mm f/2 LTM using the LTM to M adapter.
    No other optic will give you such a Compactness to Cost to Performance ratio...
    The 'heavyweight' Noton f/1.2 should only be purchased if Ultra low-light is your main emphasis.
    The modern mirrorless digital sensors perform like never before, especially with their low light performance, so a high speed lens isn't as important as they used to be...

    The Voigtlander 35mm f1.7 and f2.0 are both exceptional lenses at a much lower weight. Something to consider maybe.

    I have the 40 mm f /1,2 VM on my leica m type 246 i really like but honestly consider buying the f/1,4 SC vm why big heavy and very agressive focus throw. I do know the smaller version has the same focus throw but you have a finger tab. Makes it easier. But a big wish to voigtlander start making the focus throw a big longer and less agressive.

    have the 40mm 1.2, very similar, think the same lens hood- if your gonna keep it get the hood-clicks twist on nice- i shoot my 40 on my m2, with a 6 stop ND- can get some 1.2 shots but hv to settle for some 1.4, f2- or f4

      I’ve been debating buying an ND filter for it!

    Have you tried pairing you m240 with the Voigtlander 35mm f/1.4 SC?

      No I haven’t! But I do like the idea of it’s far smaller profile. I thought I’d find myself using f1.2 a lot, but I rarely use it!
