A few weeks ago Laowa sent me a copy of their first lens dedicated to Sony’s full frame e-mount system, the 15mm f/2. This lens is meant for landscape & astrophotographers who want to capture as much of the beautiful night sky as possible; which means wide and fast. Last year I was able to get a copy of their 12mm f/2.8 for Canon and used it on my Sony A7Rii with a Metabones adaptor. I was quite surprised how much I enjoyed the lens. A lot of what was great about that lens can be translated over to this one as well. First, let’s talk about the physical design and characteristics.
Well, it's been a while since I had updated my website so when I saw that I was going to have to run through and get back to maintaining the site again I decided to just buckle down and simplify everything.
I typically have more to say in my first paragraph but this camera blew me away and “wow” is one of the best ways to portray my first reactions. I was fortunate to test out the GFX 50s for a week starting a few days before the new year. What a way to start 2017!
I’ve had a copy of the x100F since early November. During that time I kind of made it my go to camera for just about anything and everything. From my more artistic professional shots, to travel, to basic family vacation images. This camera has been everywhere. From around my own home in Kentucky, to the Great Wall of China, to Disney World in Florida. I’ve thrown just about everything I could at this camera and it delivered wonderful results.

A few weeks ago the company making the Laowa 12mm f/2.8 lens contacted me to see if I would be interested in reviewing their upcoming lens. They have a lot of information on their kickstarter already so I knew what to expect: sharpness throughout, zero distortion (amazing for such a wide field of view), and a fast aperture, all packed into a nice compact collection of glass and metal.
This post is purely opinion based much like everything I write on here so take it with a grain of salt. Though I feel as though it’s something that really needs to be addressed in the vast world of photography groups. Over the last couple of years I’ve been apart of many photography groups. I’ve left most of them.
