    Would comma be reduced at f1.4 or f1.8? (For astro shots)

    I was really disappointed with the reviews for this lens. Up until the release, I was eagerly looking to try it as an astro lens. I've had some fun results with the Voigtlander 17.5mm which is a really excellent lens, even wide open. I consider some of the distortion on that lens quite appealing. The 25mm has a similar character but is quite a bit softer. It is nice for portraits though and has an interesting contrast profile, just like the 17.

    The 10.5 though... I haven't used one, but would like to give it a try just to confirm for myself if it's as bad as the reviews make it out to be. It fills a void in the m43 line-up as a 21mm equivalent.

    Let us know if you give it a try. I'd be really interested to hear others' impressions of it.
