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.


it's not so much about which lens is better optically but rather which focal length you really need.

For me it's none of the above. I only use lens like wider than 14mm for astro, and both of these two are really slow so not the best for this particular application, for none-Astro landscape application, 15-18mm is what I normally use. therefore I went with Samyang 14 2.8 and Batis 18 F2.8 for on my Sony A7R II. I will give the Voigtlander 15 E mount a try again, the last two copies Ii tried was horrible. Some friend use 10 and 12mm for architecture, but I prefer to use my Canon Tilt and Shift 17 instead, i like to do the perspective correction on the spot instead of in PP.
