Just what I'm looking for! Looks great. Didn't need to be f1.7, but looks good.

Not many choices for ultrawide primes. Corners look a tad soft even stopped down a bit. I wonder how it will perform for astro? The small size is nice but probably couldn't prioritize minimizing vignetting. I also wonder about coma performance. Suspect it might be better in the end than defishing the Oly 8/1.8 fisheye pro. Time will tell.

I was hoping for a bright and weathersealed Pro ultra wide prime from Olympus/OM as my second lens to complement 12-100mm F4, but I settled for 8-25mm F4 when it was announced, also weathersealed and taking 72mm filters. 9mm F1.7 will still fill a big gap in the system, but my priority now is probably 100mm macro.

Me too. Wish it was a 21mm-equivalent, but probably get it anyway.

You can always try the Laowa 10mm, about the same price.

Starry sky AF is the cat's meow so prefer AF for astro landscapes if possible. Finally found a review that looked at comatic aberration and not so great at F1.7 as expected.



It appears likely that he used a converter that probably used the baked in linear distortion correction so might not be as bad if use another converter that can ignore that metadata--- (depends on the algorithm used in the correction. ) I don't hold out much hope that the coma performance is actually acceptable at F1.7 though. It is a fine interesting lens and great for many applications but may not be optimal for astro. Perhaps Oly (OM systems ) will make a rectilinear fast WA with different design
choices so is better for astro. At least one can hope.

Does the Laowa have a hard stop infinity? Are really expecting perfection across the frame at f1.7 in a 9mm? Seems a tall order in a $500 lens. Not even sure it is possible.

For a little bit more, I take the AF and weather sealing and forego my exact preferred focal length.
