One of the reasons I bought one of these is to use for panoramic shots with
the negative cropped appropriately. I've just got back from Tunisia and am
beginning to develop some of the B&W stuff I took.

I bought a 15mm SW Heliar because it seemed cool to be able to obtain, all
of a sudden, such an exotic focal length so cheap. I shoot at f8 - the peak
of the sharpness graph I've seen. This lens is amazing and whats more I find
I use it far more than i ever expected. The one essential is foreground
interest - the shots need to be mainly foreground IME.
