Venus Laowa 9mm f/5.6 FF RL Lens for Nikon Z

Designed for full frame cameras, the Venus Laowa 9mm f/5.6 FF RL is currently the world’s widest rectilinear lens. The remarkable 135-degree angle of view allows you to capture landscape images with ease and realize formerly impossible shots. The lens includes two aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion elements to suppress chromatic aberrations and distortion to the minimum. Despite the one-of-a-kind perspective, the lens itself is super compact (2.4 inch long) and weigh only 12.3 oz. It also features an extremely close focusing distance of 4.72 inch (from subject to sensor) for photographers to create mini macro shots with ultra-wide perspective.

Extraordinary 135-Degree Angle of View

Featuring a remarkable 135-degree angle of view, the Laowa 9mm f/5.6 is currently the widest non-fisheye lens ever developed for full frame mirrorless cameras. The ultra-wide angle of view is particularly helpful for interior as it helps exaggerated the sense of space. The one-of-a-kind perspective also helps realized a lot of formerly impossible shots.

Extremely Close Focusing Distance

In addition to the ultra-wide perspective, the new Laowa 9mm lens can focus extremely close, almost like a macro lens. The closest focusing distance is only 4.72 inch measuring from subject to sensor. This is so much closer than the other ultra-wide angle lenses in the market and it provides a greater flexibility for photographers to compose shots at any distance, create wide angle shots at close distances and control depth of field much more easily.

Perfect 10-Point Sunstars

The 5-blade aperture system produces a pleasing sunstar rendering. Simply stop down the aperture by 1 stop and can create the perfect 10-point sunstars.

An Exaggerated Sense of Space

With a remarkable 135-degree angle of view, the lens creates a sense of space by exaggerating the relative size of foreground objects. This lens is extremely useful for interior photography.

100mm Filter Holder

Despite the ultra-wide angle of view, Venus has managed to work with partners to carefully design a filter holder (sold separately) that 100mm-wide filters can be used without serious vignetting.
