Venus Optics LAOWA 9 mm f/2.8 ZERO-D

10. Focusing

The Venus Optics LAOWA 9 mm f/2.8 ZERO-D has got everything a manual lens of good quality should have. Its manual focus ring is relatively wide, it moves evenly and is well damped. Running through the whole range needs a turn through an angle of about 130 degrees. That value might seem not so big for a manual instrument but with such a depth of field as that provided by the Laowa 2.8/9 it is more than enough.

The situation is even better in practice. In the majority of cases you won’t need to touch the focus ring at all – it’s enough you set it near the infinity mark and it will be quite enough for 90% of all photos. The remaining 10% concerns those moments when you want to shoot something from a closer distance by f/2.8.
