Subject: [Leica] Kobalux (was Voigtlander 25mm Skopar)

I'm curious as to why there are so many discussions about the
Cosina/Voigtlander lenses and not the ones by Kobalux.  Is it just that
the Cosina/Voigtlander ones are more widely available?  Both the 21mm f2.8
and the 28mm f3.5 Kobaluxes are rangefinder coupled, and if the photo that
Dante Stella has on his website is anything to go by, the performance of
the 21mm is impressive.  I'm curious as to the evaluation that LUGgers who
have used these lenses, either in comparison to the Cosina/Voigtlander or
the Leica equivalents, may have regarding performance, construction
quality, finders, etc.
