Laowa 12mm

PostSat Jan 18, 2020 5:33 am

The Laowa 12mm T2.9 is ready to ship, at least the PL mount version. EF and MFT are coming. ... ro-d-cine/

With a 1.6 crop on S35 sensor, it's about 19mm focal equivalent. MFT has a 2.0 crop, or a 24mm equivalent.

I wonder how well this fair compared with the Rokinon Cine DS or Xeen product lines.

With its zero distortion I would think it’s very appealing. If I didn’t have the Tokina 11-20mm, I’d try this lens.
