Verdict

The Voigtlander Color Heliar 75mm f/2.5 SL is a tiny lens with an excellent performance - it is very sharp, shows little vignetting and both distortions and lateral CAs aren't field-relevant. Typical for Voigtlander lenses the quality of the bokeh (the out-of-focus blur) is very good although slightly underdeveloped due to the moderate focal length combined with the relatively slow max. aperture (for a medium tele lens). However, the lens has also a few weaknesses - in contra light it is prone to flare and in very critical scenes you can also force it to produce purple fringing at f/2.5. In principle the build quality of the Voigtlander is excellent - that is apart from the mentioned faux-pas. The 75mm f/2.5 is a manual focus lens with no electronic coupling. Consequently the handling is somewhat cumbersome when used on a Canon EOS DSLR (using an adapter) and generally an approach for enthusiasts only.
