Sample Images from Laowa 15mm f/4 Wide-Angle 1:1 Macro Lens

Speed Review - Venus Optics 15mm f/4 1:1 Wide Angle Shift Lens Laowa 15mm f/4 from Venus OpticsMy Laowa 15mm f/4 from Venus Optics arrived today.    This is the world's first wide angle macro lens. Offering 15mm and 1:1 macro capabilities.  Manual aperture and manual focus with a shift mechanism is added at the rear end of the lens with a maximum adjustment of +/- 6mm, which is extremely useful for landscape/architecture photography for distortion correction.01-4.42 mm_1-120 sec at f - 1.8_LG-H815My first thoughts - This lens is interesting - Wide angle lenses typically don't make good macros as you need to get close to achieve 1:1 and that's true with this lens too. Some of the photos below I was actually touching the subjects.Live view exposure simulation doesn't work, leaves you to use the viewfinder and with manual focus only that can be tricky.   I took a handful of images with the Canon T6s and the Canon 5D Mark III. I haven't played with the shift mechanism yet - Will be posting more photos soon.Available to order direct from Venus Optics or B&H Photo Video
