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

Share


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:

Net SE (Meyer-Optik) files for insolvency in Germany

Share

The German website Photoscala reports that “Net SE”, the company behind Meyer-Optik, Goerz and Oprema Jena filed for insolvency in Germany. And the reason for this is a tragic event. CEO Stefan Immes had a near-fatal car-incident. It’s unclear yet if the company will be saved or not.

Meyer Optik successfully funded E-mount lenses through Kickstarter. But we don’t know yet if those projects will be continued or not. There are also currently 13 E-mount lenses listed at BHphoto. They might be out of Stock soon.

Very sad news. I hope Stefan Immes will be able to recover from his injuries.
