The Laowa 24mm f/14 Relay isn’t a rifle, it’s a lens

laowa 24mm f/14 relay

Laowa is set to start shipping soon a pretty weird lens, the Laowa 24mm f/14 Relay lens.

The new Laowa lens is basically a 2:1 macro lens build so that it can go into places that are impossible to ordinary lenses. As you can easily figure out from the videos, a Canon mount version will be announced for sure. So far they teased the Laowa 24mm f/14 Relay lens on FaceBook.

DigitalRev posted a pre-production model hands-on review:

[…] the lens was very light and constructed decently well, although it’s worth noting this is a pre-production model. I wouldn’t say that it’s as solid as other Laowa lenses, which use quite a lot of metal in their designs. This is probably to keep the long tip flexible and easy to maneuver, even though it doesn’t look very rugged. Regardless, it’s not a lens you’ll be using excessively – more like something you’d keep in a case and bring out just for a specific shot or two.

As soon as the Laowa 24mm starts shipping I will post it. Stay tuned!

These are the best primes and zooms for the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II, according to DxOMark

Eos-1dx Mark Ii

DxOmark posted a list of what they consider the best prime and zoom lenses to be used with the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II.

Surprisingly (or maybe not), the zoom lenses ranked first and second are not Canon.

  1. Sigma 24-35mm f/2 DG HSM ART
  2. Tamron SP 15-30 mm F2.8 Di VC USD.
  3. Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM

The three best ranked prime lenses (recommended for photojournalists):

  1. Sigma 20mm f/1.4 DG HSM
  2. Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM
  3. Canon EF 24mm F1.4L II

What does it mean that third party manufacturers build lenses that are considered the best for Canon’s flagship, the EOS-1D X Mark II? It means that both Sigma ad Tamron made some significant advances in the last years and are now able to build lenses with outstanding optical performance and to sell them at a price that’s usually lower as the Canon counterparts.
