Venus Optics launches Piano White versions of cine lenses

Venus Optics released the Piano White version of Laowa 9mm T2.9 Zero-D Cine for Canon RF mount and OOOM 25-100mm T2.9 Cine lenses. The lenses are priced at USD $649 and USD $6,000 (USD $7,500 for the bundle with 1.4x full-frame expander and 1.33x rear anamorphic adapter) respectively.

OOOM 25-100mm T2.9 Cine

The all-in-one Laowa OOOM 25-100mm T2.9 Cine includes a default Arri PL mount with Canon EF and Sony E mount bayonets for interchange. A Canon RF mount bayonet is exclusively added in the piano-white version of the OOOM lens. The constant maximum t-stop T2.9 makes low light filming easier throughout the whole zoom range.

The 1.4x full-frame expander and the 1.33x rear anamorphic adapter are bundled with the OOOM lens. Cinematographers are able to expand the usage of the lens to fit different camera settings and filming purposes. The expander converts OOOM into a full-frame lens while the anamorphic adapter creates 2.4:1 widescreen cinematic looks.

Laowa 9mm T2.9 Zero-D Cine is currently the widest cine prime lens with a native Canon RF mount, which features a 120° angle of view on the Super35 sensor, the company says. The fast-maximum t-stop i.e. T2.9 is well suited and more flexible for filming under a low light environment. Its tiny size i.e. 54 x 62.4mm and lightweight i.e. 247g match with mirrorless Canon-RF-mounted cameras with gimbals or drones. The standard 55mm filter thread for mounting screw-in filters brings convenience.
