Voigtlander had the 20mm f3.5 SL II (N) which measures horribly in MTF testing and is quite good in "infinity" reality, and the rather lovely 40mm f2 (nice bokeh rendering). The also discontinued 28mm f2.8 was only nice for APS-C (soft at the edges on full frame).
That Voigtlander 28/2.8 looked super cool though, and I thought Lenstip said it was good by f/5.6? (so it is/was better than the awful Leica 28/5.6 lens released recently, at least you had larger apertures for when you don't really need/want good corners. )
