    Is that the M mount lens - if so, it has it's own softness at f1.5 .......... supposed to get a lot better at f2.8

    as I understand it people either like it or (do not) like it - no middle opinions really

    also if it is optimised for f1.5 ....... other apertures suffer and if optimised for f2.8 .... then f1.5 can be (is) very soft

    I have thought about the lens, but wide open shots put me off the more I see them, (just a personal opinion and not a criticism)

    Thanks for posting, if it is the RF lens, maybe it is a little unfair to base any opinion on it's use on the M43 cropped sensor

    but am I thinking of the correct lens? - no sure now that I have thought about what I have said

    Its the LTM / RF version made by voigtlander jp. I find its sharp enough for me wide open. Didn't know that it can be optimsed at different apertures like the zm sonnar 50f1.5. Pretty like the look wide open and sharp enough for me.
