Laowa 12mm Ultra wide lens review

long exposure image with Laowa 12mm

The Laowa 'Zero-D' 12mm f2.8 lens has become something more than just a Kickstarter project. It is now available at several brick and mortar stores around the world, and not just online and on eBay. After backing the original project I received my lens in the first quarter of 2017. Since then it has become a mainstay of my bag for commercial and industrial work. I love the lens, but isn't everyone's taste. I recently put together a review for Landscapegear.co.za as they are now the official distributors for Laowa in South Africa. 

As an added bonus, if you pick up this lens in the next two weeks, you can get the Nisi 100mm filter older as a bundle with a R1000 discount. This is phenomenal value, and the filter holder outperforms the original Venus Optics holder in every measurable way. Plus, it includes a circular polarizer that doesn't vignette!
