Lens Works Well With Sony a7r

charllie, Adorama
26 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I have not yet studied the corners of images made with this lens and the Sony a7r. But the image does not appear to vignette and looked good in the camera. I am using the camera and this lens in particular as a backup to a medium format camera, but from all I have seen would not hesitate to purchase...

Way better than you'd expect

Brad W, Amazon
10 March 2013
  • Summary: This lens if fantastic. It performs really well, but where it really shines is in how compact it is. I'm used to F/4 lenses because I also have a mamiya 7II, and honestly I'd rather have quality over speed more of the time anyway. This thing easily fits in a pocket, and it's 21mm...

Best bang for buck 21mm "M" mount lens

A. Hasija, Amazon
8 March 2013
  • Summary: A 21 mm on a full frame camera would be considered an ultra-wide lens, if you are using it on a micro four thirds body, this would be effectively a 42mm FOV. If you google a little bit, you will find that this is one of the cheapest 21mm M mount lenses out there.

WHAT FUN!

David Siegfried, Amazon
7 March 2013
  • Summary: I love this little guy. OK sure it doesn't deliver the same mind-blowing image as the , but it is a tiny fraction of the size and weight of that lens, not to mention costing less than 1/4 the price. Wow, this lens is WICKED sharp in the center of the frame. I mean, it will blow your mind, man!

  • Summary: I am in the process of selling this lens in favor of the Zeiss 18mm f/4, yet still I have a very high opinion of it. Here's the good: -This lens is very sharp. Central sharpness is great even wide open at f/4.

Sako, Adorama
18 December 2012
  • Excerpt: I owned a number of M series lens. You pay a small fortune for the "red dot".Cannot knock the quality of the Solms glass, but when you buy and use this lens ( I decided to sell my M6 and Bessa bodies as frankly loading from the bottom may appeal to the Leica elitist diehards, but life was not meant...

DOCTOR Z, Adorama

a tiny lens with a tiny price

Doctor Z, Adorama
12 January 2011
  • Excerpt: This works great on my Leica M8. Great for street photography, landscape and for travel. Don't need an external viewfinder due to a 28mm coverage in the viewfinder . Slight corner softness is seen. If you are using it for architecture look for something costing at least 2k.
