The amount of serials collected gives a sample large enough to make this an accurate assessment of the production volumes, so there is no reason to continue this project anymore. You can read the original post, updated in November 2012 with up-to-date information here:

A few days ago a Nikon version finished in the UK for $1130 / EUR1037 in MINT condition (complete in box),
are the prices finally getting back to "normal"??

The second-hand prices for the Zeiss 135 APO have come down quite a bit too and probably all reflects the soft market for photo gear. Only natural that the Voigtländer would follow suit.

That was predictable anyway. Once the peak is reached the marked will regulate the prices. The initial hype based on the introduction of mirrorless cameras seems to be over now. Hopefully. Wink

Thanks, its size and weight make it a fantastic travel solution for a longer lens too. Now I just need my adapter to be delivered, haha.

We always seem to be waiting on adapters...that can't come quick enough.

I have a 125 APO with serial number 9120865 (first Nikon run). The curious thing is that it's labeled as Cosina, not Voigtländer - not only the lens itself, but also the screw-in cap and the hood.

I've never seen any other APO Macro labeled as Cosina, and I've specifically seen earlier ones (by serial no) with "Voigtländer" markings.

Any info on how many lenses were sold as "Cosina"?
