Venus Laowa 15mm f/4 Wide Angle Macro Lens with Shift for Canon EF Mount

The Venus Laowa 15mm f/4 Wide Angle Macro Lens with Shift for Canon EF Mount is the world’s widest 1:1 macro lens. Featuring an ultra-wide 110 degrees angle of view of with 1:1 maximum magnification, allowing users to focus very close to the subject but at the same time, include the background details (where and how the subject lives) into the photo. Added with a +/- 4mm feature, this lens is an ultimate creative tool for landscape, macro and architectural shooting.

Focus from Infinity to 1:1 Magnification

The new Laowa 15mm f/4 1:1 Macro lens is the first lens in the market which possesses an ultra wide angle of view and 1:1 Macro ability. This allows photographers from around the world to start experiencing the rather undeveloped field of ‘Wide Angle Macro Photography’ without using an extension tube. Macro lenses currently in the market tend to have a mid to long focal length and it limits users to take very close-up shots on the insect or flowers, without showing much of the background details like its habitat or environment.

Coated with Anti-Reflective Process

The new Laowa 15mm f/4 1:1 Macro lens features an ultra-wide angle of view of 110 degrees with 1:1 maximum magnification. Photographers can focus very close to the subject and let the foreground dominate in the photo but at the same time, have the background telling viewers about where and how the subject lives. You picture will immediately become very informative and intriguing. Every glass is coated with anti-reflective coating to prevent any flares and ghosting.

Metallic Build Plus +/- 6mm Shift Function

The lens can also serve as an excellent ultra-wide angle lenses with infinity focus for cameras with full frame sensors. A shift mechanism is added at the rear end of the lens with a maximum adjustment of +/- 6mm for APS-C cameras, which is extremely useful for landscape/architecture photography for distortion correction.

Useful for Landscape

The lens houses with 12 elements in 9 groups with 3 high refractive elements and 1 extra-low dispersion element to deliver crystal sharpness both in the center and the edge. Barrel distortion was also carefully controlled. 14 aperture blades form a close-to-circular aperture, capable of creating creamy shallow depth of view. The enclosure of the lens is made of metal to strengthen its durability. Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony A, Sony FE and Pentax K mounts are available.
