    Can the Zeiss 21/4.5 be used on the M9?

    This is one compact lens! Has anyone used it on the M9? Besides image quality, I am interested whether it displays color shift and vignetting wide open. Is it helpful to code it for one of the Leica 21's? Will Cornerfix handle the color shift and vig?

    I had one, but used it only for a few frames on the M9. It was 6-bit coded as 21/2.8 Elmarit ASPH. It displays a red color shift in the left part of the picture and vignetting is quite important. I understand that both problems can be solved in Cornerfix, but I haven't tried it at the time. This lens is a pleasure to use due to its compactess and total lack of distortion.

    Yes, I know of at least one user that's using the Z21/M9 with CornerFix. Your mileage may of course vary....

    Is vignetting worse on this lens than other 21's?
