26 Mar Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero D for Fujifilm Review – Dylan Goldby – Photographer

As a portrait photographer, I don’t stray into the ultra-wide-angle realm all that often. I’m certainly not against using the Fujifilm XF 16mm f/1.4or even the Fujifilm GF 23mm f/4 for dramatic effect as you can see on my YouTube video about shooting wide-angle portraits, but any wider and I’m not usually going to reach for it when shooting portraits. But, when Laowa reached out and asked if I’d test their 9mm f/2.8 Zero D lensfor Fujifilm, it seemed like a great time to get out and shoot something different.
This will be far from a technical review. There won’t be any closeups for sharpness or test charts. But, I’ll try to pepper in a few details as I see them being relevant. In the end, most modern lenses are pretty darn good and the technicals don’t really need to be talked about unless they absolutely stand out. So, let’s take a look at this fun little lens and what it’s capable of.
Laowa’s slogan for this lens is “Carry Less Capture More” which is absolutely true with this lens. Just like Fujifilm’s f/2 series of primes, this lens is so small and light you can just toss it into any corner of your bag and not worry about whether you’re going to use it or not. Like Carol King, it will always be there for you…
