Kowa Prominar 12mm f/1.8 Review

Specification

Kowa Prominar 12mm F1,8 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. Having looked at the Prominar 8.5mm f/2.8 (T3.0) lens, we now follow up with a review of the 12mm f/1.8 T1.9) – the 25mm f/1.8 (T1.9) will follow in due course. The 12mm looks the part, just as the previously reviewed 8.5mm did, and balances well on the Panasonic Lumix G6 used for this review. Let's see how this one fares compared to the first.
