  • Superwide 7-14,7.5,8mm

    Planning for my coming Bromo trip. Milkyway is the main focus.

    I have already that 7-14/2.8 but I am looking to something brighter. That Laowa 7.5/2 seems to fit the bill, low price, small and light

    BUT with an EM1.2, I can use that Oly 8mm FE as a Rectilinear.

    What are your thoughts?

    I am planning not to bring that 7-14. would I be making a mistake?

    I have the Laowa 7.5 f2 and really like the lens, it’s tiny and the image quality is as good as the 7-14 4/3 lens I had so would recommend it!

      I'm no expert, but isn't a fisheye better for wide-field astro (no stretching of stars at edge of frame)? The 8mm f1.8 is super fast too - you can usually do an exposure at a reasonable ISO that's short enough to stop star trails.

        That's what I am thinking. either that Laowa or the 8mm.

          The Laowa gives a rectalinier image

            Think I will settle for the Laowa. It's slightly cheaper, Smaller and lighter. The reviews on the points to a lot of CA. Hope I am not going the wrong direction. Now to hunt for a low cost unit of that Laowa.
