    Hey guys,
    I'm getting that GAS attack and what I'm looking for is a good 21mm M Mount to use on a GX7 (m4/3). It'll give me a 42mm view with that crop and should be a nice street combo.

    I'm interested in the Voigtlander Color Skopar f/4 because of the price, but Adorama has a used Zeiss f/4.5 C Biogon for $669. Is it worth it to go with the Zeiss or will the Voigtlander be good enough?

    thanks!

    You need to be careful that the rear element of the lens does not jam up in the camera, non-retro-focus 21's can go deep. I would check what has been used over on the u43 Sister forum.

    Looks like everybody's using the voigtlander with no issue. Have not found one adapted 21mm Zeiss yet. I'm kind of tempted to be the first.

    I cannot use my (wonderful) non-retro focus Canon 19/3.5 and Rokkor 21/4 on my M 4/3 cameras.
