Summary: After I bought a Bessa L for a really nice price, I went to Downtown LA to shoot some pics in B&W. I basically learn on the spot how to use the camera (it doesn't work like my GH3, GX1 or the others, LOL!)the results were awesome. It is quite sharp even on the borders.
Well made little super wide angle lens for the money

Summary: Thus far, I've really been impressed with this little lens. It has the widest field of view of most anything available for my Leica screw-mount cameras, and with an adapter, it makes a great landscape lens for my Ricoh GXR.
Summary: Very nice lens. Works best if stopped down a bit. Great construction and affordability. Since there are no other lenses available in this focal length, your choices are limited. Leica's own 21mm is phenomenal, but very pricey.
Summary: I concur with prior positive comments about the Voigtlander 15mm. The optical performance appears to be very good, the build quality is nice, the compact size is handy, and the value is unbelievable! My only reservation is use with full frame format, which I have not tried.

Summary: The Voigtlander Super-Wide Heliar 15mm f4.5 aspherical lens offers suprisingly good performance as one of the two widest lenses available from Voigtlander for screw and M mount rangefinder cameras.
