  • Laowa 7.5mm f/2 MFT

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    Small Light Affordable High image quality
    Maybe too small

    For ultrawides for my Oly EM1.2, I had an old-but-good Oly 7-14 Four Thirds lens, a modern PanaLeica 8-18, and this very small Laowa 7.5. This summer I decided to complete my comparisons and choose one keeper. I immediately rejected the Oly 7-14 as being too heavy and hard to use filters on. I shot the two of them on a sturdy tripod and head. The Laowa surprised me with superior image sharpness at both F4 and F5.6 and no visible distortion (in landscapes). This one I'll be carrying happily in my rolling case.
