Laowa 9mm F2.8 Review:
UPDATE: Venus Optics is now taking pre-orders on their latest lens, the Laowa 9mm F2.8 Zero-D (zero distortion). The first 100 people buying this lens will get a set of 49mm filters (ND 1000 + CPL +UV ) for free. First comes first, so order now to be high on waiting list. The lens is not yet available at BHphoto & Co.
Jonas Rask just published his Laowa 9mm F2.8 Review… and it comes with tons of stunning samples at jonasraskphotography.
Here some excerpts:
- absolutely tiny and stelar build quality
- rectilinear lens, nice straight lines right to the corners
- It is really sharp in the 3/4 central part of the frame, but it loses a little bit of sharpness towards the edges, there’s also a fair bit of vignetting when shot at f/2.8
- some gorgeous sun stars
- vibrant colours and some great contrast
- this lens is pure fun, fun, fun!
- It’s such and amazing performer, especially when you take the small size into account.
- suggest retail price of $499
- Easily one of the most usable lenses I’ve ever mounted on my X-series system (And I have mounted A LOT over the years!)
Don’t forget to check out all the fantastic samples Jonas Rask took with this lens at jonasraskphotography.
