First in-depth review of the new Laowa 7.5mm f/2 by 3Dkraft: “surprised how well it performed”


3Dkraft (Click here) posted the First in-depth review of the new Laowa 7.5mm f/2.0 MFT lens:

This is one more lens demonstrating the skills of the designers and engineers at Venus Optics putting so extreme features in such a little housing. The lens seems to be build very solid and the focus and aperture ring operate very smooth. The optical performance is not perfect at open aperture as you can see some coma, some CA and vignetting and a bit decreasing resolution in the edges but for that size and weight I am really surprised how well it performed. Stopped down to f/5.6 or f/8 the lens is also a good choice for architecture and landscape. For drone applications I whish they could make it even lighter – e.g. with a special edition in a plastic housing – as for example the gimbals of DJI’s micro Four Thirds cameras currently can balance and stabilize only lenses up to 158g.

The lens is yet not available for preorder. But It will start shiopping soemtimes in early 2017.
