Voigtlander VM 15mm 4.5 II Super-Wide-Heliar on Sony A7rII

While Cosina has updated the Voigtlander 15mm 4.5 to a 3rd generation (which even comes as native E-mount lens), the second version still cannot be beaten in terms of size.
Is this lens still a good choice on a digital camera or should you stick to the bigger and more expensive Mk. III version?
Lens is being tested on 42mp Sony A7rII and 24mp Leica M10

How would we process your image?

The idea

We would like to make a little experiment: You can send us a raw file and then some of us will process it, show our settings, discuss our approach and maybe compare our results.

The idea is that you can compare our results to your own processing and maybe improve on it. At the same time we can compare our results and learn something as well. So everybody benefits 🙂

How to get an image to us

The easiest way would be to leave a comment with a link to the raw file. But you can also send an E-Mail to xxxx.

Edit: Thanks to all those who contributed! We now have a good selection of images to chose from 🙂
