I just got the f2.8/21mm Zeiss Biogon (32mm FOV on R-D1) and will be giving it a workout this weekend. I can say in very preliminary test shots that the Zeiss has very minor vignetting which does not need any correcting at all in most shots.
I don't have the 25mm but do have the f4.5/15mm Heliar (23mm FOV on R-D1) and other than the vignetting - which is correctable - it is a wonderful lens, razor sharp and has beautiful contrast. I mention this in case you are looking for something a bit wider too.
I will be posting some 21mm shots in the next few days on my site (www.ocgarzaphotography
) under the R-D1s Gallery. Any wide shots currently in that Gallery are from the Heliar, any longer shots are from a Leica Summicron 50 (75mm FOV).
