Fujifilm's GFX series of mirrorless cameras have made medium format more affordable and accessible than ever, but lenses for the GF mount remain fairly expensive. That is why, at $999, the Venus Optics Laowa 19mm f/2.8 Zero-D is a particularly intriguing option, especially when paired with its extra-wide focal length and maximum aperture. This excellent video review takes a look at the new lens and the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice.
Coming to you from DPReview TV, this great video review takes a look at the Venus Optics Laowa 19mm f/2.8 Zero-D lens for Fujifilm GFX medium format cameras. With a 15mm equivalent full frame focal length, this lens offers photographers a particularly wide perspective paired with an especially wide maximum aperture for a wide angle medium format lens, making it a potentially useful option for a range of applications, including landscapes, astrophotography, architecture, and more. Venus Optics included additional useful features, including a five-blade aperture for 10-point sunstars, a minimum focusing distance of 18 cm (0.185x maximum magnification), and a relatively portable weight of 546 g. Altogether, it looks like another interesting lens from the company. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
