Should I sell my Voigtlander Color Skopar 21/4 and get a Voigtlander 15/4.5

I live in Hong Kong, where there's a lot of people on the streets. It's dense but has a lot of details, so should I go with a 15 or a fisheye? A 12mm is a bit too expensive for me. If you recommend a 12mm, I will need to sell my canon 50/1.2 and my Voigtlander 21/4

I really want to sell my canon 50/1.2 LTM, message me if you are interested

If you want a 15mm instead of a 21mm then sure. If not then no.

The 21 f4 is worth much much more than what you can sell it for. Keep that and use that. With all the gear I have I realize decades later that my first camera with a 50mm lens was all I ever really needed.

Well, I have both and they're so different that it's a bit like asking "Should I order strawberries or ice cream for dessert?"

Purely personally, even on crowded streets, I find the 21mm MUCH easier to use. But that's me. As MIkhail says, go out and shoot. If the 21 covers too narrow an angle (and I'd be astonished if it did), then yes, consider a 15.

Cheers,

R.

21 is wide enough even for Hongkong's cyberpunk style streets sell it only if you can make money from the sale otherwise keep it and use it.
