Key Features
  • Micro Four Thirds System
  • 15mm (35mm Equivalent)

  • Automatic Aperture Control
Now featuring automatic aperture control, this version of the Laowa 7.5mm f/2 MFT is a super-wide lens for Micro Four Thirds Cameras.

Venus Optics Laowa 7.5mm f/2 Auto Aperture Reviews

Excellent wide angle lens for Micro Four Thirds

By Dennis
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-10-13

I really love this wide angle lens with my GH5. I believe it is the widest rectilinear lens available for micro four third cameras, and as such, It enables me to achieve video I could not get otherwise. It is a speciality lens and one must be careful when using it not to get curved edges, but for establishing shots, opening introduction shots it is wonderful. I rented the Panasonic 8 -18 zoom for comparison and on the wide end I found the Laowa superior. Sharper, better contrast, much lighter and less expensive. I have the auto aperture version which adds a little more convenience in operation, but the manual lens works very well also. I am very pleased with this product and I highly recommend it.

Will this lens activate peaking and image magnification when the focus ring is turned?
Asked by: Walter P.
Yes. For example Sony and Panasonic come fully equipped with two powerful tools for manual focusing. This is useful for photographers using old manual lenses, with an adapter, or those filming videos.
