    Thinking of getting a Voigtlander 15mm f/4.5 wide for the E-PL2 and E-P1 and was wondering how good it was and if it is a good focal length on M4/3 for landscape and general walk about. Important thing is is it sharp?

    Or would i be better off getting the Pany 14mm f2.5? The voigtlanders look so much more sexy than the pany lenses!LOL

    I also desperately want the Voigtlander 40mm f/1.4 Nokton which will be a deffinate purchase!

    These are a few of my shots using the Voigtlander 15mm, f/4.5

    P1000446.

    P10004421.

    1000261.

    1000243.

    1010871.

    For landscape work it's a toss up between this lens and the Voigtlander 12mm, f/5.6 for me these days. The 15mm is probably that bit sharper than the 12mm. I find that applying some correction for vignetting is advisable, to that end I've actually made some pre sets for all my lenses in my raw processor (Bibble Pro 5 in my case).

    Thanks for the images. I love that bus! Looks like a photo from the 70's!
