    Have used this lens on my X-Pro1 with great results; took it for a test drive this morning with the M8. All zone focused at F8, shot mostly with the Voigtlander 15mm external finder, which is obviously a bit wider than the effective 20mm FOV on the M8. A bit of PP on LR4.4.

    Those look sharp, and the corners look great. I'll bet you could find a 20mm finder, or make a mask for the existing finder to match up with the M8 FOV.

    Thanks, Brian, good suggestion. The VC is a sharp lens, and has very good contrast.

    Great shots with the 15 - I especially liked the one of your dog, who my wife thinks looks like a bear on the loose :).

    I've never been much good with ultrawide lenses, but here's one from yesterday with this lens on the M9:

    Thanks, Amin, great shot of your boys, as usual! Presumably taken before the M9 was shipped off to WI?

    Thanks, I made sure to take a photo walk before shipping off the M9 for repair :).

    This lens really is quite a bargain in Leicaland, isn't it! If I used true wide angles, I'd have this one. Great shots. You didn't need to use Cornerfix on the M8?

    I have the screw mount of this lens and am looking forward to trying it out today on both my M8 and OMD.

    No, just straight PP on LR4.
