We retain exceptional sharpness of the 65mm but we add a better focal length for macro and a 1:1 ratio
The lens can easily compete with the Sony 90mm F2.8 macro G OSS (1100 euros) and does even a little bit better in term of sharpness.
For real macro where you are anyway in manual focus its focusing ring is more precise than the Sony thanks to its 360° rotation from 70cm to 35cm
The lens is also very good at portraits with beautiful blurry background but the lens is maybe too sharp for portraits

The highly anticipated Voigtlander 110/2.5 APO Macro-Lanthar hits the market, and scores a win.
After putting the apochromatic telephoto (capable of 1:1 macro) under great scrutiny, it delivered exceptional macro performance while maintaining IQ at all distances. At infinity and f/4, it’s even slightly better than the Batis 135/2.8 APO – which is one of the top Sony E-mount lenses.
The 110/2.5 APO is a great all rounder. The lack of color aberration, high resolution/contrast and telephoto focal length, make it a solid option for macro, portraits and landscapes.

The Voigtlander 110mm F2.5 Macro APO Lanthar is a stunningly sharp macro lens that offers true 1:1 magnification and a useful working distance from your subject. Boasting the same stellar build quality that we’ve come to expect from recent Voigtlander lenses, this new optic is a real gem.
