How do you compare it to Voigtlander 12mm F/5.6 III in E-mount? I have a 16-35mm F/2.8 GM zoom for ultra wide. These two lenses would take it even wider. If I want to get one, which one would you recommend?

I don't have this Laowa 10-18 but have seen some reviews, not bad but also not spectacular.

Not spectacular, no, but fine on 42MP FF or 24MP APS-C. It is a sharp lens, and very Voigtlanderish in terms of sunstars, etc.

I'll post more photos in a week or so....

Current feeling is the lens has a learning curve, but really does what one would hope it might do. It's just that 10mm is hard to shoot right.
