Venus Optics Laowa 15mm f/4.5R Zero-D Shift for L Mount

Laowa 15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift is currently the World’s Widest Shift lens for full-frame cameras and medium format cameras. The amount of shift is ±11mm for full-frame cameras and ±8mm for medium format cameras. The lens is perfect for architectural and interior photography. The sky-high buildings can be captured in a corrected perspective easily.

Image quality is guaranteed with high image sharpness and nearly no distortion (Zero-D). 15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift enriches the diversity of Laowa’s extensive wide-angle lens collection by giving photographers more control over the perspective in their images.

World’s Widest Shift Lens

15mm f/4.5 Shift is the widest shift lens for full-frame cameras. The angle of view is 110°, and it covers a huge ⌀ 65mm image circle. The wider perspective offers a great deal of flexibility for photographers to capture architecture and interior shots when space is limited.

±11mm Shift Amount

The maximum possible shift amount of the lens is ±11mm for full-frame cameras and ±8mm for medium format cameras (e.g. Fujifilm GFX / Hasselblad X1D). The shift capability allows photographers to capture straight architecture with ease. 15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift straightens the lines that appear to converge in the distance. Crooked images can be corrected by changing the perspective of the lens. Perspective distortion is eliminated to create an image that matches reality.

Large Image Circle

With a huge 65mm image circle, the lens not only works with the full-frame format but also covers the medium format sensors. This makes it currently the World’s Widest lens covering Fujifilm GFX sensor with no vignetting.

Zero Distortion

15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift is composed of 17 elements in 11 groups. It suppresses the distortion to nearly Zero level from corner to corner. Perfect for architecture photography as any straight lines will be retained.

High Image Quality

15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift coupled with new lens coating. A significant improvement in the chromatic aberration, flaring, and ghosting.

Extremely Close Focusing Distance

15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift is an ultra-wide shift lens coupled with a 20cm closest focusing distance. Thanks to this macro-like photos can be created easily. The functionality of the lens is diverse and a wide-angle macro image can be easily captured with this lens
