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 bought the 10mm ....largely because the 12mm wasn't released until later.

When the composition is right the 10mm offers a uniquely ultra wide perspective...but the moment you start pointing the lens slightly upwards or downwards you have to contend with distortion.

You can find my photos taken with the 10mm lens here. Some photos work better than others


Yeah and neah. One of the things that I do like about such a wide angle is that it allows for a lot of perspective corrections.

Or, the distorted image in the camera looks very different post post-edit. This is often overlooked when we consider FOV and composition:

As seen in camera, or OOC.

Post edit, a view impossible with 'narrower' FL lenses.
