Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero D Image Gallery

New lens company Venus Optics has released their newest (and possibly most interesting) lens – the Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero D.  The Laowa 12mm not only has an incredible 12mm full frame coverage but has the claim to fame to have “zero distortion” (Zero D).  That’s a claim that I will be testing in my review, but, if true, would make it a truly incredible lens.  Note that any wide angle lens will have some perspective distortion (you can only overcome that through a tilt shift mechanism), but not having any actual barrel distortion will make correction of perspective much easier.  So far the lens has been impressive, though it is manual focus only and might be a little more challenging for some users due to the dauntingly wide focal length.  Watch for my ongoing coverage of the Laowa 12mm f/2.8 along with many photos that will be posted and shared here.  The Laowa 12mm will come in a Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony A and E, and Pentax K mounts – click here to see the lens in the mount of your choice.
