Kowa Prominar 8.5mm f/2.8 Review

Kowa Prominar 8,5mm F2,8 Front Oblique View

Kowa is indeed a venerable name in the world of photography, having produced many cameras and lenses from 1954 to 1978, plus more recently spotting scopes and even a range of ultra-telephoto lenses. The Prominar lens name has been used extensively and now we see it reappear in a series of three compact prime lenses for MFT format. We are looking first at the Prominar 8.5mm f/2.8 (T3) lens, and to follow will be reviews of the 12mm f/1.8 and 25mm f/1.8. The lens looks good on the Panasonic Lumix G6 camera body, so let's see how it performs and handles and if it lives up to its distinguished heritage.
