Fantastic lens, I am using it on Sony a7rII with TechArt Pro. Extremely sharp, even at f/2 wide open. It became my EDC for street-photography and group, along with the Voigtlander Nokton 40mm F/1.4 for natural light portraits.
I use the Ultron 28mm f/2.0 on the second camera in my bag, a very nice Leica-Minolta CLE. It is great for shooting crowd scenes, such as zoos or parades. I have also used it in museums and outdoor sculpture gardens.
I only use this one for my EPSON R-D1xG as a fast normal lens. I know it should be soft and it should have CA wide open, but they are quite noticeable. Remember I'm only using a 6 megapixel camera with it. Comparing to a DSLR lens with the same price, it's not as good.
Better image then the leica lens Lente Leica Vario-elmar-t 18-56mm F/3.5-5.6 Asph. Of course this is fix lens. It produces excellent video image in Leica T.
Optically solid, decent bokeh, easy to use and very well built, with solid clicks for aperture and a silky smooth focus ring. On the downside, the minimum focusing distance is 0.7m, which limits usefulness as an all-purpose lens, since it's not very usable for candid portraits or indoor snapshots in...
I also own the CV 35mm 1.2. This lens isn't as good. Its also not as a good as the Leica 28mm Elmarit despite being a stop faster. However given its a third the cost of the Leica and half the cost of the CV 35mm its a good cost for performance value.
A very nice lens that is tight corner to corner. No distortion and while not a Leica lens it produces a very honest and viewable image from my M3. Nice bokeh for the buck. Use it while you save up for the Leica version, which costs several thousands more.
I am a huge fan of Voigtlander lenses and I own several in both MFT and VM-mount. Up until recently, I have used them exclusively on my MFT cameras with their 2X crop factor. Now I have a Sony A7 and this has opened up a whole new world of true wide angle without the crop factor.
I bought this lens to use on my Sony A7R as a walk around lens. I have used it for a couple of weeks and the images are good. The lens is solid and small so it makes the 7R much smaller than using my A mount lenses with the adapter.
If you're looking for a wide-angle rangefinder lens for your A7/A7R, this is the one to get. This lens does not exhibit the magenta shift/corner smearing that is typical of Leica/Voigtlander wide-to-ultra-wide lenses. Built like a tank with excellent aperture and focus ring feel.
