In use the new Voigtlander M mount 12/5.6 handles better than the screw mount version, and of course now offers rangefinder coupling and can easily use filters - without the filter adapter necessary on the earlier screw mount version. The new 12mm viewfinder is much improved with a brighter, easy to see image as well as a brightline. On the other hand, the screw mount 12/5.6 costs less while stocks remain and is usable on screw mount cameras - something not possible with M mount lenses.

The smaller format Leica M8/8.2 as well as the Epson RD1 can use the Voigtlander 15-35 Zoomfinder with 12mm or 15mm lenses!
