    VC 15mm II on M9

    So I sold my original VC 15mm when I traded in my last M8 for another M9... I had made numerous great images with it on M8 over the last few years. Great lens...
    Than, I found on KIJIJI a brand new Version II for the same $$... I could not pass. Today, I tried it for a first time on my M9 and processes the test image with Corner Fix. Lens was "coded" as 21mm per asph. and profile shot was just a gray wall in my home... More than happy with result!

    Now, I am gone totally wide on M9! This little glass does not stop to amaze me...

    Jason Howe has a wonderful review of this amazing little lens on his website, and I absolutely recommend it to anyone considering (or already enjoying) a 15/4.5 Heliar.

    Stephen - On Jason's recommendation, I was very close to getting the 15/4.5 for use exclusively on the Monochrom. The possibilities are exciting, and it's not a crazy expensive lens

    Here is the first test shot:



    FYI: cyan streaks on the top are from the existing light fixtures, not the lens...

    Don't forget that the CV15 is also a wonderful portrait lens
