Pros: Possibility of perspective distortion correction, macro, sharpness at the center, gradually closing diaphragm and smoothly, the quality of materials.

Cons: complex distortion, confusion at the edges, vignetting, lens hood.

Opinion: Intrigued by this object (and do not allow potendomi Zeiss optics ...) I bought this supergrandangolo loving this type of photography. I immediately like getting the build quality, is made of metal and glass as always should be. On the barrel is a release lever that allows you to vertically decentralize the optical group of 6 mm downwards or upwards to correct perspective distortion, but given the large field of view and its inherent distortion better place all on tripod leveled. Unfortunately, in general, the distortion is accentuated as is normal, but in the filming of the complexity of geometric elements fabricated curves is pretty obvious note, barrel but not regular, which make the correction even in post production difficult. I have yet to explore macro photography with this objective, which promises new possibilities thanks to the characteristic of being able to shoot even the background, as well as close to the subject, what prevented other targets, I just noticed that the rapportho 1: 1 is obtained with the subject practically in contact with the lens, with the loss of sharpness, which, moreover, is excellent in the center of the frame in the landscapes, and dematerialized at the edges in a manner also quite important. Infinite possibilities of iris, which closes gradually and smoothly. The lens hood does not have the same quality of the lens and tends to invade the frame accenting vignetting. Ultimately an interesting lens and fun at a fair price.

Pros: 77mm filters, compactness, cost-to-features ratio, 3-year warranty.

Cons: Construction only discreet, difficult to use for those who start and/or do not know exactly what they are buying; flare and ghost in certain shooting situations, vignette on fullframe when using the shift "6mm", soft at the edges.

Opinion: The optics is unique in its features, it is fun to use it because it allows really unusual compositions. It is made of metal and the diaphragm diaphragms are easy to reach, while the diaphragm does not have the typical bursts of progress, the construction is only discreet and despite being made of metal you can not compare to a zeiss: you have to settle for what it costs. The photos you find in my gallery are just one example of what you get by paying attention only to the ghost and flare when you frame with the sun at the corners of the frame. The use of the classic 77mm filters is priceless so the 14mm samyang has often remained in the backpack. The overall yield is decent/good in the middle of the frame while on the sides the performances drop a lot. The full review can be found here: http://www.wazer.eu/venus-laowa-15mm-f4-macro-tilt/
