some testshots

Trying out the Voigtländer Nokton 58mm F1.4 - I love this lens. One shot at F1.4, the other at F2.8. See the difference in DOF.

Quite a bit of CA though. But nothing really serious imo. Camera shot with Nikon P7000 - note the BlueSLR addon.

Domke F2 loaded

Spot the lenses ;) from left to right and clockwise
Nikon d700+mb10 grip w/sigma 150mm f2.8 macro attached
Tamron 17-35mm (removed the lens hood otherwise it wouldn't fit)
Nikon 85mm
Nikon 24-120mm
Lensbaby Composer with on top a Voigtlander 58mm nokton
And the sb900 that goes on top of it all
Not bad for a small shoulder bag.

The info on the domke site is a little ambitious, I really had to puzzle to get everything loaded. The site is probably still using old fashioned "thin" lenses for their "fits X lenses":

 Ideal for: 2 Pro SLRs, 4-6 lenses, pro flash and accessories.

Yeah right! Definately impossible to fit 2 modern Pro SLRs in there. Maybe Without grip and lens yes, but then you'll never get 6 lenses inside. And the SB900 won't fit either .. 

I do love the military duffel bag look though. Schweet.

Quick tests with the Voigtländer 58mm F1.4 Nokton

F1.4 is razor thin DOF.
Portrait shot with F1.8
I like this lens. Very long focus throw (old-fashioned, almost). One niggle: lens hood is screw-in type, so lens cap won't fit anymore once the hood is on. Sigh.
FWIW, I didn't buy the original ($35,-) lens hood but a third party $5,50 equivalent metal hood.
