I've written some portraits of the lenses I've been using most. One of them is the Super wide Heliar 15mm f/4.5. As a matter of fact I don't use it as much as before. Mainly because it has become much more wide angle than it used to be. On a full frame sensor it becomes super wide. Never before I've been able to capture the whole cathedral, and more.

Some of its deficiencies become more obvious, as well. Not that they are that important when stopping down a few steps, and some people are applying special post-processing tools to get that the vignetting in the corner.

Anyway, that lens which used to be mounted continuously three years ago is now living a calm life on a shelf.
