Laowa’s 12mm F/2.8 with, “Zero-Distortion” made a big splash in the lens world not that long ago, and is looking to continue this winning streak by teasing the release of a native E-Mount lens.
By the looks of the promotional image, we should be expecting an ultra-wide to wide option—and that’s perfectly fine with me. Laowa’s optics have put a lot of pressure on their competitors to create new super wide’s which will only help every shooter out there. Creating more small flange E-Mount lenses seems to be in an effort to carve out a larger section the market for themselves.
What would you like to see from Laowa and other native E-Mount manufacturers?
Venus Optics teases the launch of a new Full Frame E-mount lens
Via Sony Alpha Rumors:
Venus Optics is known for making some excellent optics. So it’s great to hear they have one more new lens coming at Photokina! The lens is a “pure” E-mount lens which means it doesn’t come for any other mount and it’s designed for the FF E-mount cameras. I have no clue about the lens focal length yet… what’s your guess?
Their current FF Sony lenses are:
15mm f/4.0 macro at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay
12mm f/2.8 on Kickstarter (campagn just ended with a huge success)
105mm f/2.0 STF lens at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay
60mm f/2.8 macro at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay
