Controversial lens in reviews, but hard to find a perfect UWA lens. This is a great lens in terms of quality, feel and especially size compared to anything else in its category.

Love the way it feels, super small and super solid. Every other lens in my kit is Zeiss and this matches the quality and feel. Super close focusing.

Not razor sharp wide open. But very nice 5.6, 8, etc.

Perfect for street, event, architecture.

Comparatively: Zeiss 18 or 21 (the only lens everyone raves about and is the Holy Grail of lenses in this category) but are 3-4 times the price. Canon/Sigma are autofocus, a bit cheaper but much larger and quality certainly not as solid.

This lens is extremely well made (above Canon build quality, up to Zeiss standards) and renders nice colors and contrast. It's also really small and pretty light. This + Canon's 40mm pancake makes for an inexpensive and extremely convenient travel setup.

If you have a full frame sensor and sharp corners are important to you, be prepared to stop down and still be a little disappointed (if that's you, you should look into the Voigtlander 28mm for Canon). I use it on a 5DII, and lack of corner sharpness + vignetting doesn't bother me - its awesome size makes up for those faults. It's certainly not distracting, it's just not up to Canon's or Zeiss' ultra wide angle standards. On a crop sensor most users should be plenty happy with it.

In daylight, operation of this lens can be extremely fast. When shooting at f/8, focus can be set to infinity and you'll get basically everything from around 7 feet and further in focus. No AF to wait for on shutter release makes it really snappy. This makes it great for street shooting.

I purchased this Voigtlander lens specifically to use on a Glidecam HD1000 with a Canon 6d. It is perfect for this application, but more than that, it has almost instantly become my favorite lens. Manual focus is not a problem, it has yet to slow down and single shot when I'm using it off the glidecam and the build quality is so good it feels fabulous to us. The image quality is outstanding, anyone who is not impressed has to be impossible to impress. The results are visibly better than my Canon 24-105 L lens at the wide end. I chose this lens over the Rokinon/Bower/Samyang/Pro Optic 14mm f/2.8 (FX) and am so glad that I did. Having a lens that communicates with my camera makes using it much easier, this lens is much smaller and easier to balance, not to mention carry on the glidecam and I'm certain the image quality has to be better based on the reviews I've read. The build quality is wonderful, the price is reasonable, I'm delighted with this Voiglander lens; it is a no reservations 5 star lens.

A really excellent lens, for what it is. It's not fast aperture, it's not AF, and it's not razor sharp in the corners wide open. At this focal length, I don't care much about those - I have other lenses that give me a large aperture and I just don't care all that much about corners. You give those things up for a lens that is WAY smaller than any other lens in similar focal lengths. Also build quality is really great, and IQ is for the most part great as well - definitely good enough for what I need it to do.

AF is the thing I miss the most, and this is my first MF lens. But I am getting the hang of it, and honestly it's pretty easy to do at this focal length - only indoors at f/3.5 do I need to watch the focus, or if I'm doing up-close work outside.

This is a niche lens, for sure, but I love it!
