    Fuji X-Pro 1 with Voigtlander 12mm

    Hi

    I wonder if anybody has any experiences with the Voigtlander Heliar Ultra Wide-Angle 12mm f/5.6 Lens on the X-Pro 1 I am thinking or also using it on the Lecia monochrome so it would have an "M" mount.

    I have heard that the 12mm throws off (correctable in post) color caste in the corner, but the Fuji being a cropped sensor - possible does not have this problem.

    Any comments are appreciated.

    Thanks

    Phil

    Here are a couple of test jpegs straight from the camera. I don't see color cast - just a bit of vignetting and regular geometric distortion. Aperture f5.6

    Can vouch for the LTM version: smaller, less weight ....
