Featuring a remarkable 135° angle of view, the new Laowa 9mm f/5.6 is
currently the widest non-fisheye lens ever developed for full frame mirrorless
cameras. Landscape photographers can now experience an ultimate wide-angle
photography with beautiful scenery captured in one shot. The ultra-wide angle
of view is particularly helpful for interior shooting as it helps exaggerated the
sense of space. The one-of-a-kind perspective also helps realized a lot of
formerly impossible shots.
Super compact & lightweight
In response to the demand from mirrorless camera shooters of having a compact
wide angle lens, Venus Optics have taken advantage of the flange distance of
mirrorless cameras and compress the size of the 9mm f/5.6 lens to the
smallest in its class, measuring approximately 2.4 inches (~6cm) long and
weighing only 12 oz. (350g) with a lens diameter of 60mm. It is a welcome relief
for landscape, architecture, interior or travel photographers that are traveling
over long distances and looking for a high quality and portable ultra-wide lens
to carry anywhere.
Extremely close focusing distance
In addition to the ultra-wide perspective, the new Laowa 9mm lens can focus
extremely close, almost like a macro lens. The closest focusing distance is only
4.72” (12cm) measuring from subject to sensor. This is so much closer than the
other ultra-wide angle lenses in the market and it provides a greater flexibility
for photographers to compose shots at close and far distances and control depth
of field much more easily.
