Experiences with the LAOWA 12mm f/2.8 ZERO-D prototype (by Dierk Topp)
I am a wide angle junky, bought my first 17mm fish eye Takumar in 1970 :-)

A few weeks ago Venus Optics contacted me and asked, if I would be interested in comparing their new LAOWA 12mm f/2.8 ZERO-D to the new 10mm f/5.6 Voigtlander. Of course I was interested! Last Saturday the packet from Hong Kong arrived, customs and everything payed by Venus Optics.
