    Some reports that I read, show that the lens has problems with smearing and aberrations in the corners of the A7 series sensors (common problem to almost all of rangefinder wide angle lenses).

    I am using a Nikkor 24 f2.8 AIS lens, quite happy with the results.

    Seeing that you use APS-C cameras, I'd go for the Sony/Zeiss E 24/1.8 if the price of the Leica 24mm is anywhere near the price of the alter-native.
