The Laowa 15mm F2 Zero-D Lens is specifically designed for Sony full frame sensor E (FE) mount cameras, such as the A7 series. This allows E mount users to take impressive ultra wide angle pictures by using the 110 degree angle of view. Ultra-fast f/2 aperture will also be embraced by everyone especially the Astro and landscape photographers. Relatively compact and lightweight lens housing superior optics.
The Laowa 15mm f/2 FE Zero-D is the second member of the "Close-to-Zero" distortion line-up, following the launch of 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D last year. The lens is specially designed to remove the optical distortion which commonly exists in wide angle lenses at infinity focus. Straight lines will be retained.
Super Light & Compact
Currently the widest f/2 rectilinear lens in the market which comes with a native E mount (i.e. Does not require additional adapters). It is an ultra-wide & ultra-fast prime lens which covers both full-frame & APS-C sensors. Despite the extreme specifications, we have successfully minimized the weight of the lens to around 500g and 8cm long. This compact and light lens comprises of 12 elements in 9 groups with two aspherical elements and threee Extra-low dispersion elements. Even though the distortion is minimized, chromatic aberrations are also kept relatively low, the Laowa 15mm F2 still delivers a superb optical performance from corner to corner.
72mm Filter Thread
Ultra-wide & fast lenses in the market tend to be huge and have a dome-shaped front element. It is a headache for landscape photographers who need to use filters very often. Venus Optics understand their needs and manage to design a flat front surface and include a 72mm filter thread into the lens. 72mm screw-on filters can be used and no more investment on bulky filter holder is required.
Ultra Wide & Fast
The extreme 110° angle of view and ultra-fast f/2 aperture allow photographers to create impressive astro-photography shots with ease. It also gives photographers a fast and wide-angle option for landscape photography and low-light shooting.
Close focusing distance
Photographers can take advantage of the super close focusing distance of just 15cm's. This together with the f/2 aperture, it is a great tool to create some bokeh and wide angle close-up shots.
The new Laowa 15mm f/2 FE Zero-D is specially designed with an aperture switch which allows users to quickly switch between click-less and clicked aperture. This added feature is essential for for videographers.
