LAOWA 10mm f/2 Zero-D Lens
Regular price 1,700.00

Description

Ultra wide and ultra compact, the Laowa 10mm f/2 Zero-D from Venus Optics is a Micro Four Thirds prime lens characterized by its sleek form factor and impressively broad angle of view. The portable design makes it particularly well-suited to drone and vlogging applications and the wide-angle field of view is ideal for architecture, landscape, interior, and astrophotography subjects.

As a Zero-D lens, distortion is very well-controlled and the optical design uses aspherical and low dispersion elements to minimize a variety of aberrations for high sharpness and clarity. It has a manual focus design, with a minimum focusing distance of 4.7", and a built-in CPU and motor permit intuitive camera-based control over aperture settings. Additionally, a petal-shaped lens hood is also incorporated into the lens' design to reduce flare and ghosting when working in strong lighting conditions.

Details
  • Ultra wide-angle prime is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and provides a 20mm equivalent focal length.
  • Bright f/2 maximum aperture is well-suited to working in low and difficult lighting conditions.
  • Rectilinear design renders subjects with minimal distortion in order to suit landscape and architectural applications.
  • Three extra-low dispersion elements reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for increased clarity and color neutrality.
  • Two aspherical elements limit spherical aberrations for improved sharpness and controlled distortion.
  • Manual focus design offers a minimum focusing distance of 4.7".
  • Five-blade diaphragm produces distinct 10-point sun stars when working with smaller aperture settings.
  • Integrated CPU chip and motor enables camera-based control over aperture settings and also transfers Exif data for recording lens setting metadata.
  • Built-in petal-shaped lens hood shields the lens from stray light to reduce flare and ghosting and also protects the front elements from accidental impacts.
