  1. CV 40mm f1.4 is one of my favorite adapted lens on Fuji-X bodies. It's small, fun to use and make interesting shots. Yesterday I've received "MINT" sample from eBay US seller claiming the lens is used only once. The lens has tons of hidden issues, and I'd like to expose them so you'll not buy (or just return) similar lens. Please feel free to ask questions or add suggestions. My case with that seller is not over yet, he still insists the lens is perfect and I'm wrong : ) Ok, so discovered issues list: 1. Checking the focus ring. It should rotate smooth on all Voigtlanders. I was surprised there are no grease and ring rotates sometimes stiff sometimes very loose. 2. It looked suspicious, so I inspected rear side. There are shiny black painted areas on disassembly threads. Make sure you inspect it on your Voigtlander/Zeiss/Leica, etc. lens 3. Typical inspection with strong flash light under different angles unveils more details. You can see a lot of dust. 4. And now we came to the most scary part : ) I found someone's fingerprint under the glass. After noticing that I also checked the box - styrofoam inserts was from another lens. No manual. Plastic bag is "100y old". Also white paint on lens became yellowish - one more indicator of the lens age. Optically lens works excellent, but all that issues make overall experience very bad. Hope this short review helps someone purchasing better options.
  2. Keep looking for manual alternative of XF 27mm 2.8 lens. Decided to try Voigtlander 28mm 2.8 SL II in Nikon F mount (Canon mount version is heavier and larger). I like how it performs on Fuji sensor. F2.8 F2.8 F5.6
