I have a Gordy wrist strap and it failed today pulling camera I put strap around my wrist lifted out of bag and was left with wrist on my arm. Camera and 12mm hit the deck in a rocky flower bed and caught the top petal and bent it and scratched the hood. Gordy strap is being burned.


for what it's worth, I'm using this strap on my A7Rii. It's very comfortable and has no plastic - all metal and fabric. I have no fear of the camera coming lose.

The clasp itself opened up somehow. Totally off guard on that one. All I can think of it got jammed somehow to open part way. Great strap though. I'm using a Lance braided neckstrap now. Really nice

Reason I went like that if I have it cross shouldered on the street I can just rotate to shooting position without it grabbing on my shoulder. But definitely the Gordy strap incident was a rare moment . Weird how that happened for sure

Does this lens suffer from sample variation as much as the 15mm?
I'm undecided between this and the 15mm, but I don't really want to go through the expensive process of shipping lenses back and forth until I find a good copy.

Surprisingly it does not. I have tried three CV 12/5.6 lenses and they performed very similarly. Definitely not the case with the 15/4.5 III where it is very difficult to get a good copy.

Fred, many thanks for that info. I think then I will give the 12mm a try, although 15mm would suit me better.

Same here. I'd much prefer the 15mm, but given the poor QC, I'll go for the 12mm instead.
Thanks!

Guys, one more question. Is the new version much better than the old one?
I see that the 12mm II has a filter thread and it's much cheaper, especially used, whereas the new version doesn't accept filters and it's much more expensive. Of course I'd expect the new one to be substantially better than the previous model, but is it 300-400€ better?

here is a cut-out showing the CV 10/5.6...The CV 12/5.6 III should be very similar.

Are the 12mm E-mount and M-mount versions optically identical?

Wow, those stars are nice. Interesting though that they give a feel to to the image which is very different than the feeling of actually being in that space, which I remember being very austere and serene. Something like Sagrada Familia floating in space.
