I'm an ambassador just now, for LAOWA optics, and they kindly sent me their 15mm wide angle f/4 macro lens to play with - and it opens up a world of possibilities - designed to allow macro photography that capture scenes beyond into the landscape distance. Great fun but niche, here are some taken on our family walk around the Brockholes Nature Reserve on Monday. Bracket fungus, grey-coral fungus, dead mans fingers,, more toadstools and fungus, fallen leaves and more. This lens is so different.
For more details check out the Venus site here https://www.venuslens.net/product/laowa-15mm-f/ref/6/ if this lens gets you licking your lips...

@IPClark - the exif isn't showing for some reason... (Markdown software of the forum?)

    These are very cool. Don't worry re. Exif, it's really only they aperture, shutter, ISO etc. I wanted to know. :)

    You wouldn't get the aperture for this manual lens and I'm guessing the lens was wide open at f4.

    I've owned this lens for several years but, in view of it's special applications, have scarcely use it.

    I had it attached to my FF A7r3 for the first mushroom survey of the season but a heavy downpour was forecast and my backpack is not waterproof. The downpour never happened.

    I want to try it for stereo pairs.
