Voigtlander 15mm f4.5 Super Wide Heliar

Voigtlander 15mm f4.5 Super Wide Heliar on Leica M9

I bought this lens for wide angle shots for weddings but it is also great for landscapes and architecture. The lens is super sharp wide open and has very little noticeable distortion. The lens is also absolutely tiny (my smallest lens other than the 21/f4) so is easy to carry around all day.

Here are a few more samples taken on day trip to London yesterday.

And some other examples, here showing the only potential negative point, the purple fringing at the corners that is sometimes seen when used on a digital body as the lens mounts closer to a digital sensor than it did to film. Coombe Abbey –
