Laowa 15mm f/4.5 Shift lens

I watched the DP Review on the Laowa 15mm shift lens .

Anyone tried that out?

Any thoughts?

There are quite a few threads currently running on this lens over the past month.  Do a quick scroll down in this forum and also check out comparisons to the Canon 17 TS-E in the Canon Lens forum.

Re: Laowa 15mm f/4.5 Shift lens

Hi guys,

I bought one and have tested it with my D850 and GFX 50R. Honestly, I am very satisfied with this lens compared with the price tag. Image quality, it depends on how you compare with. If you really like to compare with Canon 17mm & Nikon 19mm, go with that with a triple price to get the result you may think good. Image sharpness you have to set the lens as F8 or F11 to get the best result.

As a hobby photographer, this lens is great to get a really good result. Using photoshop to make it straight up is different.

By the way, I want to point out using the shift lens is required for some patients. Set your ball head straight right, level it, and shift the lens up or down to make your composition, then re-focus. You will see the difference. I saw many people use it in a wrong way..............
