Voigtlander 10mm or 12mm

I'm looking at purchasing a Voigtlander (My first manual lens).

For architecture and nature shots.

Look forward to hearing some feedback. I've read the 10mm can be quite challenging.


I have owned both. I purchased the 10mm FE mount first. It has pretty abysmally soft corners. Really disappointing.

Show some shots?

Here is a scene for judging corner performance - it is not so bad?

I returned it and later purchased the 12 mm FE mount. I have been delighted with it. Very sharp, even in the corners. But as you probably already know, it is tricky to shoot well with a lens this wide. I'm still learning.... and waiting for the new Laowa 15mm...
