Having to buy one should I buy the UltraLight version or the normal (20$ is not the point). Is the UltraLight (more expensive) better or, given lowest weight, is worse (for example due to more plastic and less metal) ?
Asked by: Marcello
The UltraLight version is more so meant for use on drones for aerial photography.

Quick Question... Just purchased the Laowa 7.5mm ...

Quick Question... Just purchased the Laowa 7.5mm F2.0 lens for landscape use on either my EM-1 MII or my EM-5 MII. Is it appropriate to set the camera mode to Manual, select shutter speed on the camera and then select aperture on the lens ring. Or, alternatively is is better to select camera mode to Program, and then select the desired aperture on the lens? For those that use this lens, what is considered routine or optimal practice for well to decently lit landscape photos?
Asked by: Larry
It does not matter which one you choose, it is all a matter of which you prefer using and what aspects of your photo you want to change.
