Very happy with the Laowa 10/2

I bought this lens recently as the UWA rectilinear lens to fill the range gap between the 12-40 and the 8mm/1.8.

I've taken test shots and been amazed by the vignetting in the extreme corners.

Recent shooting with it at family events in a garden have shown how well it produces detail and colours.

Paired with a used PL25/1.4 mk i, it has revitalized my EM1.1 as a small kit.

Not noticed this mural before and 12mm would have crushed me into an obstacle behind. Vignetting not having much effect.

Not a keeper but shows what the lens can do - small body + small lens = unobtrusive.

Note the small but perfect sun star on the phone at the right.
