    I think the Laowa 12mm is a much better lens at F2.8.

    Laowa has a slightly larger image circle so you get about the same FOV with Laowa on Monstro as you'd get with the IRIX (once you crop to inside it's circle).

    Looked at the Laowa.....great price, love the 2.8, but no PL mount option.

    What do you think of the GL Optics re-housing of the Laowa?

    I have that version--bought it over a year ago. I'm very happy with mine. GL Optics went above and beyond to make me a happy customer.

    I'm sure that the Laowa product, when it hits the shelves, will be as good (if not better) and will certainly be less expensive. But if you cannot wait a few days or weeks for that, the GL Optics version is a very credible offering.
