Anyone tried or thinking of buying the 'new' 15mm f4.5 Voigtlander?

    Just to explain if everyone isnt up to speed - like I wasnt - Voigtlander have just issued a new (version iii) of this super wide angle lens. The version ii which I tried about a year ago wasnt really usable on an A7 camera - it suffered from color shift, corner smearing and vignetting - and a lot of each.

    Supposedly the new version has been specifically designed for digital FF cameras such as the A7 and these problems have now gone. The few shots I have seen from this lens on the internet look pretty good although I cant really tell if they have been fixed.

    Would really like to see a few shots with some commentary if anyone has one.

    Just don't put the sun in the frame. You get a regular sensor reflection pattern showing.
