It was 25 years ago that LumiQuest came on the scene with its original product—the LumiQuest Pocket Bouncer. And it still remains one of the most popular LumiQuest products in the world. LumiQuest was co-founded in 1987 by Quest Couch and Heidi Kenny as a result of their Audio Visual Production company, which required Quest to be on-location shooting for clients. “This type of photography was fast-paced and required being prepared for a variety of different lighting situations,” Quest explains. “At the time, I often carried several Vivitar 283s and their metal bracket with a bounce card, which was bulky and cumbersome to pack”.

The new super wide angle Distagon T* f/2.8 15mm lens for Canon and Nikon mounts is neither lightweight nor inexpensive (1.6 lb for Nikon, 1.8 lb for Canon mount, $2950) but what you get from this manual focus lens is exceptional image quality and facility that is perhaps unmatched by any other lens in its focal length class. With a 95mm filter thread and integral and fully compatible lens shade, the lens offers an extraordinary 110-degree angle of view that is pleasure to work with on a wide variety of subjects. The fast f/2.8 aperture is matched on the narrow end by a minimum aperture of f/22, which at 15mm means there’s potential for extraordinary depth of field effects using the 10-inch closest focusing range. While decidedly not a portrait lens, the 15mm is ideal for landscape, street photography and creative advertising work, as well as architectural and urban photography, as I discovered in mybrief time working with it.
