Summary: A really excellent lens, for what it is. It's not fast aperture, it's not AF, and it's not razor sharp in the corners wide open. At this focal length, I don't care much about those - I have other lenses that give me a large aperture and I just don't care all that much about corners.
Excerpt: This was my 5th lens, and last maybe, of my kit. My camera is the 6D. I love wide angle but I'm not sure I really need wider than this.I shoot this lens almost always at around f/8. I most often focus with my my eyes, brain, and the camera numbers (not looking through the viewfinder).
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fun, HIgh image quality, Lightweight, Low distortion, Rugged, Strong Construction

Summary: very sharp lens even on the outer edges. i use it for landscape photography. i recommend it for any serious photographer who is particular about detail and sharpness. i use the Zeiss 18mm, Nikon 50mm 1.8 and 12-24 mm, the Voigtlander 40mm 2.0 and the 20mm.
Summary: I purchased this Voigtlander lens specifically to use on a Glidecam HD1000 with a Canon 6d. It is perfect for this application, but more than that, it has almost instantly become my favorite lens.
Summary: I purchased this lens for travel use, primarily documenting architecture and everyday life in urban spaces. focus is noticeably sharper in the corners than most other wide angle options and the manual focus action is superb which made it a clear choice for my video and stills purposes.
Excerpt: excellent for photographing streetscapes, for example in historic areas. Quality lens, compact, well built. In a wide angle lens like this the lack of autofocus isn't a problem. It's expensive and I dropped it one start because of that.
Excerpt: I've been looking for a few good pancake lenses to make up a simple day kit, as part of my overall kit. I already have the Canon EF 40mm f/2.8, a Voightlander 28mm f/2.8, and recently added this lens to round out a nice range of focal lengths for various needs while out shooting for the day.
