Some lenses really come as a surprise and this 7Artisans 28mm 5.6 is definitely one of those.

I don’t know about you, but I did not see this coming.
So let’s find out in this review who offers the better 28mm 5.6 lens.
The lens is being tested on 24mp Leica M10 and 42mp Sony A7rII.

Laowa 15mm 2.0 with wide angle adapter ring, bridge ring and square filter holder attached

I have previously reviewed the H&Y Revoring (which I bought from Kickstarter back in the day) and already at that time I was thinking: “Combining this ring with a whole filter system would be a good idea, right?”
