If you are looking for small, high quality lenses
for your Canon Dslr’s, look no further, they are here! The Voigtlander Utron SL II 40mm 2.0 is totally amazing. Sharp wide open on the a full frame sensor, slight vignetting is visible, but that is to be expected, and pretty much flawless once you stop down to 4 and 5.6. The 20mm 3.5 Color Skopar SL II is not far behind, although the edges are not sharp wide open on the 5D2. Stopped down to 5.6 it produces amazing results. Just love them, the built quality is first rate, manual focus ring is very smooth and a joy to operate. I am using mine on the 5D mark II and the 7D.Check the short video for to see how they look mounted on the camera and compared to the Sigma 50mm 1.4 and the Canon 28mm 2.8 (one of the smallest lenses in the Canon line up). Photozone posted a review/MTF test of the 40mm, tested on a Nikon D300.
