Zeiss vs Voigtlander 21mm
Requesting input on the opinions and facts between the Zeiss 21mm F2.8 lens and the Voigtlander 21mm F4 pancake lens. I am interested in the love hate relationships and the brutal facts you have come across. I have an M2 and have been putting quarters under my pillow wishing the Leica Fairy would bring me a M8.2, but I had my hopes dashed about the age of 7  when my mom woke me up pulling the lost baby teeth from under my pillow. Although one never knows.
Some of what I am interested in is has anyone shot with either of these lenses?
What is your opinion?
Have you show with both and can see a difference?
Barrel distortion better on one or the other?
Shades cutting into the viewfinder?
The cost difference and the F4 to 2.8 differences is obvious and I cannot find a lens in the condition I hope for at the price. KEH has a non aspherical 21mm now at the price point of the Ziess at EX condition, but I would like to see a bit better unless others have had great success with EX shape Leica lenses from KEH.
Really like to know if anyone has had one of these two lenses on an M8 or 8.2. and is the extra distance from the 24mm marks in the M8 cameras to the frame edge approximately the difference between a 24 and a 21mm, such that one would not need a little finder on top of the camera with a 21mm on a M8  or 8.2.

Lots of questions but I come to believe the immense experience on this site is incredible if you tap into it.

Try Rangefinder Forum. Both lenses are highly thought of, as also is the Zeiss 21 f4.5.

I use a 25 and 35 Biogon on a film RF and both are great lenses, with very consistent colour etc.

There are a lot of M8 and M8.2 users over on RFF who should be able to comment onhow they work with an M8/M8.2
