Is this really possible? What kind of witchcraft is this? The good folks over a Laowa at Venus Optics have reportedly created the holy grail of wide angle lenses. Based on the videos below Im very impressed. It has a very Stanley Kubrick vibe. Kubrick shot much of A Clockwork Orange on a 12mm (see Kubrick Lenses for more on that).
But Ive always had issues with distortion, as everyone else does. The Venus Optics Laowa 12mm has some great potential. Check out some more info on the 12mm miracle.
