The new one will be better and more compact on a MILC camera.


better and aparently much cheaper?

I think so. We will know how good the lens will be when it is available.

I can't comment on if it's worth the price. But did you know that finally a new 110mm f/2.5 successor was just released?

do you think that is better than the 125mm lanthar?? I tis not a colletible item this 125mm?

I got an offer of 1200 euros today...


I have never used the 125mm. But it's an excellent lens by all accounts. The new 110mm should be as good or better, but it's always best to check reviews and samples first.

My advice is buy one of each! Wink

so apparently there is not minimum price for these lenses that one inproves the last best one, etc, etc....
does is it possible to find this 125mm in a couple of years for less than 1000 euros??

Hard to say really how prices will develop, it all depends on how well this new lens performs.

Back on topic, among the many macro lenses I have, the sharpness and bokeh of CV 125mm is definitely the top.

The lens I most regret selling, everytime I see photos from one it makes me feel more angry with myself, I will almost certainly purchase the new 110mm if it proves to produce images near to the 125. I found the original very easy in use, hopefully the latest one will be the same.

Same here, sold my mint one in box just to regret it badly, but bought a used one back (at a much better price actually) Wink

If only I could learn from my mistakes Laugh 1
The new version is starting to appear to pre order on some UK websites, prices from £860-£1050, sold my 125 for £900 so if they are indeed as good then I didn't lose to much lol
