I'd get it for the 15 and let Biogons be Biogons.
Or just not get "it" but just the 15 to put on my M6's.
And I don't have a 28 so I'd look into that.

Are these going to be at a higher price point than their Voigtl?nder named
lenses? That's what I would do. In real life though I'm not sure if that was
the case. That Voigtl?nder stuff was cheaper than Zeiss stuff.
