Micro 4/3 Wide Angle Comparo

wide angle comparo

Here’s a quick one for ya.
Veydra just began shipping the 12mm Mini Prime which completes the full set. I’ve had some time to play with it and I have to say it’s impressive considering it’s wide angle nature and the fact that it’s coming out of China. Like I said in previous posts with the other Veydra Mini Primes, these are probably the only Chinese lenses that I enjoy using. But how does it stack up to a few other options? Here’s a quick comparison including the Veydra 12mm, the Voigtlander 10.5mm, the Rokinon 10mm, and the Rokinon 12mm. Not a perfect apples to apples, but a valid comparison nonetheless. Click the image below for full res. This is a center crop from each lens set at T2.1. I’ll have a more in-depth look comparing other features such as mechanical, optical, and build quality.

  1. I´m curious you are not adding the SLR Magic 10mm/T2.1 to the field – great cine lense in my opinion and i guess in the same category as the Veydra and the Nokton regarding to the optical performance.

    1. I considered it. I had played with an SLR Magic a while ago and was really unimpressed – especially in the corners. I didn’t have one on-hand for this test either. I may do a more in-depth look and include the SLR Magic.
