The following examples are shot with my Ricoh GXR-M and the CV 75/2.5 lens during my dog-walk earlier today.

Pictures are all clickable for larger view:








The last one is a Panorama consisting of 12 pictures.

Information about this lens can be found here: http://www.cameraquest.com/voigtlen.htm

BTW, larger pictures or crops available on request.

I like mine too - it now seems to be out of production in all its variants. It's a shame the Leica thread version only focuses down to 1 meter. I've used mine on the Lumix with the extension-ring sections of the old Leitz "spider legs" close up devices which act as individual short extension tubes.

Happy Dog I wish to have once this lens.

The Fujinon-TV 1.8/75 is a good alternative. covers APS-C with no vignette, IQ is stunningly good.

Stephen, the rather long MFD is obviously the only disadvantage of RF lenses.
However, the Zenit M39 tube set is the way out for me, if not forgotten at home. Wink
What I like most is the very smooth and soft bokeh of this lens.
Indeed it's already out of production, though Gandy has it still on stock.

Maybe those portrait examples with this lens may also be of interest:

Some more examples from today's dog walk shot with my most favorite 75mm lens....

As usual with Ricoh GXR-M and converted/resized with minor corrections in LR6:

For the storks I've used a M39 Komura Telemore 2x converter.

Cheers,

Some more nice ones, Thomas. The ones with the Komura converter look good - it would be nice to see some more shots from it, perhaps using other lenses as well as the 75.

Thank you, Stephen. Well, I was positively surprised when I've seen the result back home. However, the CV 75mm lens is extremely good and sharp hence the quality decrease caused by the converter is hardly visible.
The Komura converter is something unique as it's RF-coupled and it comes with a special view finder as well (80 to 270mm).
Here is a review: http://www.pebbleplace.com/reviews/rangefinder/komura_2x/index.html
My judgement isn't that negative and in some instances it's better to have it in the pocket to enable such pictures like from the storks. Therefore it's my standard accessory like the M39 ring set and a 2nd battery when I go out for shooting with my GXR-M and RF-lenses.
I'll do some test pictures with different lenses and post them here.

Cheers,

Stephen, I just ordered the Russian RF teleconverter "TK-2D" which is shown here: http://forum.mflenses.com/interesting-2x-converter-for-ltm-lenses-t69802.html and will do a comparison of both RF converters with different RF lenses after receipt. That should give you better information as to which one would be interesting for you, if at all.

Cheers,
