That it does not fit on your camera :O

I don't think it would have been on my radar even if it had fit. I don't need just every lens on the planet, you know, even though at 8 lenses in stock, I might look like a hoarder. Big Grin

8 lenses? OI would not call you a hoarder at all. IMO, you are only a hoarder if you keep lenses you do not and/or cannot use any longer.
Of course with that definition I am not a hoarder either, with a total of 39 lenses including converters, extenders and speed boosters ...

Yet, always nice to have an option.
I wish a lens like this would have been available 40 years ago. I got a 20 mm lens back then, and a 15 mm was possible too, but the latter was 3x the price. and very big and heavy. The 20 mm was a month salary back then ....

It was a great lens at a time, but a wider lens would have been extemely useful to me for my purposes at the time. Of course now I own a 10 mm rectilinear lens, and a 17 mm TS lens, so I am not really complaining. Wink

However, I may get one. Size and price seem rather convenient, and the sample photographs I have seen really look good ....

Kind regards, Wim
