Shift Happens! GFX100S with Laowa 15mm Shift lens

I had the Laowa 15mm F4.5 Zero D shift lens for a day. Brought it to an interior shoot this morning. Didn’t used much as it too wide for my liking.  If I am correct, that would means it a 12mm lens focal length when mounted on the GFX100s. I am sure it would be amazing for landscape or city scape photography. 

Tried a shot for an interior scene


Later in that same afternoon I had an hour to play a little while waiting for my daughter to finish her art class. It’s a pretty fun lens to use. Perfect for architectural photography.This manual lens is build like a tank.  I have tested a couple hand held snaps and I feel that this lens sharpness level is above average. Distortion is not zero but very close.All the below photo are shot either in F8 or F11. I am sure when mounted on a full frame camera is going to be much better. On the GFX100S, the result are good and I guess I needed more time to put this lens through it paces to squeeze the best out. If I needed this lens for work, I would still recommend. It’s 100% useable and at this price point of USD$1199, this lens do command value.
