dpreview has posted the several sample images and first user impression of Voigtlander Macro APO-LANTHAR 65mm f/2 lens. This lens is already released, now in stock at B&H Photo Video and Adorama. dpreview said that this is a very sharp lens with excellent build-quality.

What I like:
- Excellent build-quality
- Very sharp throughout aperture range
- Focus ring turns with exceptional smoothness
- Electronic contacts allow lens to communicate with camera
What I don’t like:
- Focus ring hard stop at infinity end is beyond infinity (this may be an issue with our copy though)
- 65mm field of view takes some getting used to
