That size and weight, even with the smaller area size may be a worth checking out. Long focus throw (300 degrees), very fast lens, APO, for around $500. I have to check it out.

Interesting concept, even through it only is DX format.

Laowa does make a lot of exciting designs. I have acquired a few over the last years and put them to good use. A pity they don't put CPU chip into their lenses. I have added chips for those in F mount, though. No option, so far, for the lenses in native Z mount.
