Venus Optics announced the new Laowa 14mm f/4 FF RL ZERO-D lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras with a 114-degree angle of view. As one of the smallest and lightest 14mm Zero Distortion ultra-wide-angle lens, the lens is equipped with a 52mm filter thread.
The Laowa 14mm f/4 FF RL Zero-D is composed of 13 elements in 9 groups. The two aspherical elements and three extra-low dispersion elements suppress the distortion to nearly Zero level from corner to corner, the company said.
The Leica M mount of the 14mm f/4 FF RL Zero-D is equipped with rangefinder coupling to have a more accurate and easy focus, the company says. As for other mounts, there is a focus tab to improve stability and speed when focusing. The lens is available in Leica M, Leica L, Canon RF, Sony FE, and Nikon Z mounts. Black and silver colors are offered for Leica M mount.
The new Laowa 14mm f/4 FF RL is currently available to purchase via Venus Optics official website and authorized resellers. The US price for 11mm f/4.5 FF RL is $649 (Leica M mount) and $549 (Sony FE, Canon RF, Nikon Z and Leica L). Pricing varies in different countries. The first 100 orders through our webstore will get a free 100mm magnetic filter holder (Retail Value: $149).
