    Sony A7R with Voigtlander 12mm Lens

    I would like to hear from anyone that is or has used a Voigtlander 12mm lens, LTM version, on a Sony A7r and your impression of the image quality, color shifts edge quality.

    Here's an old post on Dyxum with a pre-production a7R

    Doesn't perform well (IMO) on the A7 so I would be surprised if it does on the A7r.

    There is a new Voigtlander 15mm M-mount lens that is supposed to be much better on the A7R. Announced at Photokina a few weeks ago. You may want to look into that.

    But I think on the a7 it looks better than on the a7R (but a totally different scene, so hard to judge)

    Btw, a lot of the colour shading problems can be treated with cornerfix, smearing is more serious, but it doesn't look there is a lot of that.

    I've used the 15/4.5 Heliar on the A7 and it works... after a fashion.

    Any WA lens, and I would not be surprised if this was the case with the forthcoming FE 16-35 struggles at the edges when ultra-wide.

    But the point is they capture an amazing perspective. If your concern is pixel peeping you will be disappointed. But if your concern is composition then if my experience with the 15mm is anything to go by then you can create photographs with impact, just not photographs with perfect pixels.

    I use my CV 5,6/12mm sometimes
    Without own LCC-Profiles from C1 Pro its useless
    But with this function its great.

    Only in low lights situations you can't correct the vignetting.

    i really look forward to the samyang 12mm. i have the 8mm fisheye (for apsc) and has been very happy with the results. i hope they can achieve the same IQ with the 12mm (and hopefully not too big). while 16-35mm F4 is good, 12mm is still 4mm wider and that makes alot of differences. the only choice at the moment is CV or sigma zoom, but as pointed out, both not without drawbacks.
