    Quite a good price and clean design, waiting for the comparison vs the 15mm F2.8 Zeiss that costs an arm and a leg

    Too bad they have no aperture ring, oh well, money in my pocket.

    I received and used the 15mm f/2.4 lens this past weekend. It is very sharp and has minimal distortion for such a wide angle of view. I was surprised at the low vignetting even at f/2.4. Most wide angle lenses start at f/3.5-4.0 because of the heavy vignetting. With the aperture closed down (a bit) to 5.6 it nearly goes away completely. My night shots start with an aperture of 8-9 and with the shots processed in Lightroom I found almost no vignetting or distortion. Both were easily corrected in post. I used the lens on my Sony a7 and used a fairly cheap adapter that worked great with aperture control and saved my EXIF data to my RAW files. The readings on f/2.4 actually show f/2.5, but that is understandable with the unusual aperture. Sony, Canon and Nikon all show f/2.5 as well even though it is actually a slightly wider aperture.
    The lens is beautiful and I had several photographers come up and ask about what lens I was using. I love having the infinity soft click that lets you know you’re set at infinity focus. Using the focus peaking in the Sony a7 is amazing with getting everything you want in quickly in focus and sharp at that. For less than $400 (I got a slight rebate from Amazon for a past shipping error) this lens has become one of my real favorites. How they can make this quality of a lens so affordable is quite a feat. You can tell that the Swiss had strong supervision on the manufacturing process. The Firefly (“plastic” body) is very well made and feels much like an alloy type lens body. Aside from the lens cap it really is a great, well made lens, I would recommend to anyone wanting a ultra-wide rectilinear lens.
