A 15mm seems like a long way from 35 - I'm guessing here, never having owned one. But I have used the 25mm Skopar for a year or so and had very good results from it. It's a LOT wider than 35mm, and you will see converging verticals if you don't hold it level, but so far I haven't found a place where I wished I could back up more. Pretty reasonably priced with a decent viewfinder, and the great depth of focus plus click stops on the focusing ring make it very easy to set the "guess" focus at eye level after just a bit of practice. I use it mostly on a IIIf, where it more or less permanently lives, although it works great on the M6 too, with an adapter.
