    Good price for ultra wide.

    Nice lens, although with that aperture rating I hope the US prices translates to around the 15mm price.

  • Am to assume that this is an updated 12mm f/5.6? Voigtlaender has had a lens like this since at least 2001:

  • The original 12mm f/5.6 was in LTM (necessitating an adapter for M-mount) and non-rangefinder coupled (meaning you had to guesstimate the focus). The newly announced 12mm (and it’s 15mm big brother) are now natively M-mount and rangefinder coupled. You still need an external viewfinder to frame the image but you can focus through the camera’s VF. CV makes a kicking 15-35mm VF with corrections for FF and 1.33x sensors.
