Venus Optics Laowa 7.5mm f/2 for M4/3 Review by Darren Miles

GET A GREAT DEAL on the Laowa 7.5mm f/2 Lens from B&H HERE: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc…

CONCLUSION: So to wrap up this review, we give the Venus optics, compact dreamer, lightweight 7.5mm f/2 lens a 35.5/40 and our Recommended Rating.

THE FINAL WORD: More often than not, wide angle lenses suffer from some inherent issues, weak edge performance, distortion, vignetting, and bad flare performance, well, I’m pleased to report that laowa does a great job with distortion control and edge performance, both seem to be really great as the verticals straight out of camera are in fact pretty straight and the edges look really sharp to my eyes, however, the laowa does suffer from strong vignetting – especially wide open and weak flare performance in brightly lit situations, which again aren’t really strong suits for most wide angle lenses, but they are noticeable in the Laowa – but all in, at just $519 the laowa does in fact offer some really nice benefits for this kind of price – specifically, if you’re a drone operator, video shooter and if you do real estate and landscape photography – sure, you only get manual focus and aperture control, but again, when it’s this wide, big scenes are going to be mostly in focus anyway at or close to infinity on the focus ring. In spite of its shortcomings, the pros, definitely outweigh the cons.
