If you were to crop a Voigtlander 15mm photo to 18mm and compared it to the same photo taken with the Batis, would the IQ be pretty much the same or would the Batis still have better corners?

By doing so, however, you really lose the haptics of such a once tiny lens. I had a lot of fun shooting photos of Diana in her red dress at the Kelso dune field in Mojave National Preserve. Voigtlander does make some symmetric wide angle lenses though, such as the VM 21mm f/4.0 Color Skopar P-Typ. You may expected to see the 1$ bill here once again, but with a maximum magnification of about 1:12 this simply didn’t make any sense, so I choose this target instead. Dear Roland, The Voigtlander 12mm F5.6 Ultra Wide Heliar is one of the widest-angle lenses currently available for Sony's 35mm full-frame E-mount camera system. The close up adapter might be a good choice for other FL lens like 35mm or 50mm but I do not feel it is very meaningful with a 15mm lens. Hope this helps.

The aperture ring can be declicked – a feature which is also availabe on Zeiss Loxia lenses – but the incorporation here is way better in my opinion: there is a small ring right behind the aperture ring, you can pull it forward, turn it by 180° and thereby change between click stops and clickless aperture (white dot on top: click stops, yellow line on top: clickless). Was tempted by the Loxia 21mm, but is maybe a bit large for some shots inside. I understood that the Loxia 21mm is probably a (the most) fantastic choice, yet I would need to save a bit for it. Thanks a million for all you guys do here, seriously – this site is *amazing* for all the info and feedback you provide. I don’t know of any lens specific holder for that lens yet.
