Venus Optics announced the price and availability for four new lenses in L mount: two wide-angle lenses (4mm f/2.8 Fisheye, 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D) and two macro lenses (24mm f/14 2X Macro Probe, Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro). All four are currently available.
Laowa 4mm f/2.8 Fisheye
Laowa 4mm f/2.8 Fisheye lens features a 210° Angle of view with a circular fisheye perspective on Micro Four Thirds cameras. On the contrary to the Laowa ‘Zero-D’ wide-angle lenses, the 4mm fisheye lens is designed to create an extremely distorted circular fisheye perspective.
Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D
Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D provides an extreme 113° angle of view and ultra-fast f/2.8 aperture allows photographers to create impressive astrophotography shots and low-light shooting. 2 aspherical elements plus 3 extra-low dispersion elements successfully correct chromatic aberration, realize close-to-zero distortion & deliver excellent corner to corner sharpness. It comes with Fuji X, Sony E, Canon EF-M, DL, MFT, and finally for the L mount users.
Laowa 24mm f/14 2X Macro Probe
Laowa 24mm f/14 2X Macro Probe is the world’s first consumer-grade probe lens which focuses from 2:1 macro to infinity and with a compelling wide angle ‘Bug Eye’ perspective. The wide-angle design means much greater depth of field at close distances than possible with a conventional telephoto macro lens, so more background details can now be seen. The front barrel of the lens is waterproof and an LED ring light is mounted at the tip of the lens. It can cover both standard 35mm full-frame and Super35 image sensors and is super lightweight to carry.
Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro
Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro is optimized for macro shooting between 2.5X – 5X life-size. The lens is specially designed with an extended working distance (45mm at 2.5x & 40mm at 5x) and a small lens barrel.
The Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X is developed for both professional and leisure macro photography, to be used in the field or indoor set-ups. An optional LED Ringlight and Tripod Collar are available for added control and precision operation.
