The Voigtlander 15 is horrible on my NEX7, I think it should be a little better on NEX 6 though. I tried so many Leica M mount style super wide lenses on the NEX 7 and finally gave up, and now I only use my SLR wide angle lenses on it. well, not that wide any more after the 1.5X crop facor, but at least I don't have to deal with the horrible edge and corners.

The CV15 was not that bad on my NEX-5. It must have next to zero problems on the 16 MP sensor. I sold my copy, because I do not use wides very much and decided to stick to only one mount (I had Canon FD, M42, M39, Olympus OM and Pen-f). The Pen-f 20mm has also a bit magenta corners with the NEX-5, but corners are clean and sharper on my NEX-F3.
