Abstract: The VST Optical Imaging of the CDFS and ES1 Fields (VOICE) Survey is a VST INAF Guaranteed Time program proposed to provide deep optical imaging covering two 4 deg^2 cosmic windows.  I will present the cosmic shear measurement of four tiles of CDFS sub-field in r-band using Lensfit.  Each tile has more than one hundred exposures to
reach deep imaging.  The r-band co-added  image reaches 5 sigma limiting magnitude r = 26.1 for point sources, which is 1.2 mag deeper than KiDS. The performance of  Lensfit on deep imaging was calibrated using VOICE-like simulation. As a sanity check, we constrain cosmological parameters by exploring the parameter space with Population Monte Carlo sampling.
