What is it with all these “world’s firsts” lately? It almost seems like companies are trying to outdo each other for an ego stroke, no matter how ludicrous their announcement may be. Well, now, it’s Laowa’s turn. Again.
The first new lens is the 7.5mm f/2 for Micro Four Thirds cameras, the widest f/2 lens ever designed for MFT. The other is the 15mm f/2 FE Zero-D for full frame cameras. It’s another lens in the “Close-to-Zero Distortion” lineup and the world’s fastest 15mm rectilinear lens for full frame. I wouldn’t get too excited, though, it’s only available in a Sony mount.
