    A couple additional notes:
    - Shutter is loud but more noticeable inside the house.
    - I didn't notice any shutter shock as all shot hand held. A few trials w/ Canon 70-300mm IS gave me sharp shots at 300mm at 1/15sec inside the house. Canon 18-55mm IS lens nearly covers the sensor at 24mm f/4.

    After all the bad press about the CV super-wides, I think I just might have to take a look for myself. Maybe rent one first or something and decide whether its too much hassle or not.

    Thanks for these, Serhan.

    It depends on how wide if you want to go, usually more problems below 28mm. A7 has less problems w/ rf lenses also, but again you can search for specific lens and see if you can live by the corrections needed. Usually Zeiss biogons are worse due the closeness of the back element to the sensor. RX1 has a similar design, but the back element most probably covers the whole sensor so the light beams are not angled that much... There are also small slr lenses like Zuiko OM 21mm 3.5 and it is not that expensive either.

    I'd probably be looking for wider than 17mm. I'm perfectly content with the Olympus 9-18mm on my E-M5 for everything else. We'll see.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for sharing - what's your general impression of the 21/3.5? Pondering getting one as a stopgap until Zeiss releases an ultrawide native lens :)
