Nikon’s lenses take some beat­ing, but Venus Op­tics is out to top­ple the AF-S 14-24mm f/2.8G by pro­duc­ing the widest and fastest rec­ti­lin­ear ul­tra­w­ide lens with FX sen­sor cover­age. The Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D boasts a 122-de­gree field of view, and its 16-el­e­ment de­sign (in­cor­po­rat­ing three ex­tra-low dis­per­sion el­e­ments and two as­pher­i­cal ones) has been de­signed for max­i­mum sharp­ness and al­most no dis­tor­tion.

First im­pres­sions_ Some bold claims: we’re look­ing for­ward to putting these to the test soon.
