    Venus Optics 12mm full frame lens

    Does anyone have any experience with a Chinese company called Venus Optics? SAR is linking some photos that are supposed to be from a future e-mount 12mm lens. I guess I'm falling behind on my research. Never heard of Venus Optics.

    They released a 15mm macro with shift a while ago. There's a thread on FM but no user images yet. Interesting images through the link though...

    The 12mm will be interesting to compare to the (slower) VC when it arrives...

    Yes. I'm on the waiting list for the VC 10mm so it will be interesting to see what it looks like. Of course being an f/2.8 I've got to imagine it will be much, much bigger but also more useful for astro.

    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    That's for sure. If you had told me a year ago that I would soon have two e-mount full frame 12mm lenses for the A7 cameras to choose from, I'd have said you were mistaken. Options are nice to have.
