Hi guys,
I am really excited about this lens. back to the future of the Leica M days. The built quality is superb, the focusing ring is superb, and it focuses from infinity down to 1:3.9! yeah, not a big deal but for video it is a big deal. I love it. Got it at 7pm ran out and shot a few clips, direct link here, let me know what you think, will try to answer all questions

I have one on order from CameraQuest. Should be here in a few days. Apparently the first production is already sold out.

I expect to have a review within a month or so.

Cameraquest, Chris. Sold out now, next shipment December. I know, BH is always very late to the party with Voigtlander lenses.

My initial review (stills only) will be online within the next couple of days.

Agreed, it is a fantastic lens, able to create a unique "look" for both stills and video.
