I decided to go with the 12 based on the IQ of posted pics. Happy with the IQ, color and contrast of this lens. Makes a great companion lens with the WATE. Shot f/11 on A7r.

I still can't decide between the 10 & 12 since I'm keeping my 15...
Nice shots everyone, thanks for sharing.


I'm in the same boat. I have the 10 and the 15 but thinking about the 12 as it might fit my shooting style more. I might even give up both 10 and 15 for the 12.

Comparing the CV and Laowa 12s would definitely be interesting . . .

I like the 12 a lot. I actually switched gears sold my Loxia 21 and getting the Batis 18. So 12,18,24-70 setup. Perfect spacing

I have the exact same 3 lenses covering that end.

The Laowa 12 can accept filters through their own filter holder. Still testing my copy of the Laowa 12.

I'm very interested to see how this lens compares to the CV12. I would love to have a good astro lens (with minimal coma) as well as excellent stopped down performance into the corners. Maybe I am dreaming....

Couple from today at Sainte Chapelle in Paris. Hand held and very low light as it was raining outside. At F8:

Does anyone have any close-up samples with the m mount version and one of the close focus adapters or TAP?

I did not like the first one above so here is a different one with the same lens. It is tricky getting the shot lined up properly with such a wide lens hand held!

Here's a just for fun shot taken with the CV12mm FE on tripod and then swapping to the Leica WATE at 21mm to see the difference of wide vs hyper-wide. Dave





12mm vs 21mm

I absolutely love this lens for its size and IQ and rendering.
It's not quite as sharp as a good copy of the CV 15/4.5 (choppy) at the very edges but the corners show noticeably more resolution when compared to the CV 10/5.6.

Here are a few samples:

Nice shots Fred I totally agree . I'm going to NY in a couple weeks and it's the first lens going in the bag.

Can someone please comment on how the CV 12mm handles distortion and flaring? Can anybody provide some high res samples? Maybe Fred with your beautiful Yosemite images?
