LAOWA 15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift Lens
Regular price 5,100.00

Description

Pairing an exceptionally wide field of view with the ability to correct for perspective distortion, the Sony E/Canon/Nikon mount Laowa 15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift from Venus Optics is an ideal lens for architecture and interior applications. The broad 110° angle of view is complemented by an impressive +/- 11mm shift range to compensate for unwanted converging lines and keystone distortion. This shift control is further complemented by a 360° rotation mechanism applying the movements in various directions for to suit both horizontal and vertical orientation shooting. Additionally, as part of the Zero-D lens series, this 15mm f/4.5 also renders scenes with a high degree of accuracy and very low distortion.

In terms of optics, two aspherical elements and three extra-low dispersion elements are featured, which reduce both spherical and chromatic aberrations for high sharpness and clarity. An anti-reflective coating also helps to control flare and ghosting for heightened contrast and color rendering. The lens uses a manual focus design for working with subjects as close a 7.9" away and has a five-blade diaphragm for producing distinct 10-point sun stars.

Details
  • Ultra-wide lens is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 22.5mm equivalent focal length.
  • As part of the Zero-D series, this lens has a rectilinear design that renders subjects with minimal distortion in order to suit architectural, interior, and landscape applications.
  • Integrated +/- 11mm of shift adjustment helps to correct perspective distortion and eliminate keystone distortion.
  • Large 65mm-diameter image circle easily covers full-frame sensors without any vignetting.
  • The shift control works in conjunction with 360° of rotation for applying the shift in various directions, benefitting switching between vertical and horizontal shooting orientations, and the rotation mechanism has click stops at 15° increments for intuitive handling.
  • Two aspherical elements limit spherical aberrations and distortion for improved sharpness and accurate rendering.
  • Three extra-low dispersion elements reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for increased clarity and color neutrality.
  • Updated anti-reflective coating suppresses flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
  • Manual focusing design and a minimum focusing distance of 7.9" suits working with close-up subjects.
  • Five-blade diaphragm produces distinct 10-point sun stars and specular highlights when stopped-down and photographing point light sources.
  • Compatible with optional Shift Lens Support for more balanced mounting and to better enable using the lens for shift-type stitched panorama shooting without parallax error.
