Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D with Luke Tscharke and review by ePhotozine


Laowa 9mm f/2.8 APS-C E-mount lens is now available for preorder at BHphoto, Adorama and at VenusLens Store.

ePhotozine reviewed the new lens:

The Laowa lenses as a range are certainly very interesting, sometimes unique and always deliver the goods in terms of performance. Traditional metal construction does mean a higher price, but we have to choose whether the trade-off of quality of results balances out the cost/performance equation. This will obviously be different for different users.
What we get is the widest lens in its class, with a fast, bright f/2.8 aperture, that performs very well indeed.

In this video Luke Tscharke introduces you to the new Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D:

Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D review at Opticallimits: “is pretty good indeed”


Laowa 9mm f/2.8 APS-C E-mount lens is now available for preorder at VenusLens Store.

Opticallimits (former Photozone) tested the new Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D. They tested ther X-mout version but the conclusion are 100% valid for the E-mount version too:

Extreme ultra-wide lenses are never perfect. Keeping this in mind the Laowa is pretty good indeed. It’s super-sharp in the image center and if you avoid f/2.8, the borders/corners are decent. Lateral CAs are generally not an issue. Image distortions are extremely low for a lens of this focal length – and that’s without image auto-correction. The primary weakness is vignetting which is rather extreme at max aperture. However, at medium aperture settings, it’s a lesser issue outside of lab conditions. Flare in strong contra-light can produce quite a bit of glare – a generally weaker aspect in Laowa lenses it seems.

The Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D may have some shortcomings but that being said we really enjoyed using the lens out there. In real life, the fully manual character wasn’t really an issue. Given the depth-of-field of a 9mm lens you can pretty much guess the focus distance and if needed for close-ups, you can just use magnified focus view in your camera. For most of us, a 9mm lens is quite exotic already thus it shouldn’t be a burden when carrying it. The form and size factor is pretty perfect if these are your constraints as well. We heard that the Laowa 7.5mm f/2 MFT is pretty popular among the drone folks. The 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D has the potential to do the job (and more) on APS-C mirrorless cameras.

Preorder the lens now at VenusLens Store.
