Laowa 4mm f/2.8 Circular Fisheye Lens for Micro Four Thirds

Anhui China, Aug 7, 2019 – Venus Optics, the camera lenses manufacturer specializes in making unique camera lenses, unveil the pricing and availability of the Laowa 4mm f/2.8 Circular Fisheye Lens for Micro Four Thirds (M43) cameras.

Laowa 4mm f/2.8 Fisheye lens is an 8mm equivalent fisheye prime specially designed for Micro Four Thirds cameras. On the contrary to the Laowa ‘Zero-D’ wide-angle lenses, the new 4mm fisheye lens is designed to create an extremely distorted fisheye perspective.

210° angle of view

The lens features an ultra-wide 210° angle of view. Photographers can take advantage of the dramatic field of view to capture. A full 360o panorama can also be done using a few as 2 images as opposed to shooting 6 or more images with conventional fisheye lenses. This lens is also particularly good for VR photography, shooting virtual tour and spherical panorama.

Outstanding sharpness

Houses with 7 elements in 6 groups, the new 4mm has an outstanding sharpness throughout the frame. Along with the 210o ultra-wide angle, photographers can either ‘de-fish’ the image in post-processing or crop to transform the image into a rectilinear image.

Super Tiny & Lightweight

The lens is extremely tiny and lightweight. Measuring only 1.77” (45mm) long and weighing 4.7 oz (135g), the lens is so small that can be put into pocket for shooting anywhere, anytime.

Huge Depth of Field

The depth of field of this lens is so deep that no focusing operation is required. Simply park the focus ring at infinity focus and stop down the lens to around f/5.6, everything will be in focus.
