Mounted on a Sony NEX 6 with a Voigtlander adapter, this lens provides 42mm equivalence and is very sharp and contrasty. The lens is small and balances well on the camera. There are no color shift artifacts. The lens is a pleasure to use with this camera, which provides great dual focus aids for manual focusing. And, the results are terrific. No noticeable distortion. Highly recommended.
I studied up on this lens. The $$$ lens was simply too expensive! I use this lens for street photography and low light photography. Also the size of the lens draws less attention than the faster $$$ lens. I would recommend this lens too any photographer. i love it!
For the price, the 28mm f/2 Ultron is a great deal, especially when mounted on a Leica M8. The 1.33x crop on that camera will give you a hair's bigger focal length than a 35mm. It has pleasing bokeh, nice contrast, and is a easy performer on the streets. Of course, it will not be as sharp in the corners as a Leica Summicron, but you'll really only notice that in larger prints, and even then it's not signficant. When compared to a Leica, or arguably even a Zeiss, the Ultron is "cheap," but it doesn't feel cheaply made nor does it give you cheap results. And, when it comes down to it, approximately $600 dollars for a rangefinder lens is cheap, but in the whole scope of things, it's not pennies like a Canon 50mm Mark II f/1.8. That's a cheap lens in every sense of the word. The main negative is that the lens will show in the bottom right corner of your view finder. Then again, so will the Leica 28mm. I think the only one that doesn't do that is the Zeiss.
