    Comments about Voigtlander 21mm f/1.8 Ultron M-Mount Lens:

    paired with Sony A7R. it's built like a tank, very crisp in centre but loses a fair bit of sharpness near the edges when wide open.

    Comments about Voigtlander 21mm f/1.8 Ultron M-Mount Lens:

    I bought this for the Sony a7r, which is particularly tough with wide angle lenses. Great build, good focus ring and aperture ring feel. It is exceptional in the center even wide open, but it gets dramatically worse out towards the corners. Those corners don't clean up until f/8.

    It probably does much better on film or on the Leica M. It is still one of the better wide options for the a7r. The Leica WATE is much better but at 4x the price.

      Comments about Voigtlander 21mm f/1.8 Ultron M-Mount Lens:

      Using this on a NEX with Leica M adapter. Good glass makes or breaks a shot no matter the camera body. This lens does not disappoint. Very solid build, smooth focus, solid aperture clicks. Excellent in bright or low light. The RAW file output with this setup is usable for print with no post adjustments!
