Hi Alastair,
One of the best all time great lenses Leica produce. Not to mention, but it 
happens to be my favourite lens when shooting travel assignments. Or I'm 
squished for space or shooting interiors and you want to "make 'em look 
really really big and lots of space! ;-)

One never has to fear competition with this lens, simply because if they 
don't have an equal lens they're dead in the water! And the vignette? Hell 
it's not worth mentioning simply because it's a bonus and saves one the 
trouble of slightly burning down the sides all round! ;-)  OK it may not be 
for everyone, but I make use of it all the time because it holds the viewers 
eyes right to the photograph.

Very nice canyon shot for sure! And without the 15mm you'd never have had 
it!   Well done mon ami. Good on you..
