Venus Optics Argus 18mm F/0.95 MFT APO Lens

An f/0.95 ultra-fast aperture

An f/0.95 ultra-fast aperture is perfect for creating impactful images. From an eye-catching portrait to stunning low-light photography, both lenses would make shooting much easier with quality results. The large aperture also makes it a great tool for astrophotography.

Equivalent to 35mm Focal Length

A 35mm (equivalent) focal length is one of the most popular choices among photographers. It is extremely versatile due to the semi-wide but comfortable image. Apart from portraits, it also works for landscape, street photography, and as an everyday lens.

APO Design

The lens is engineered with an Apochromatic Optical Design (APO) which suppresses longitudinal and lateral chromatic aberration across in-focus & out-of-focus areas. Purple fringing and ghosting are controlled to the minimum throughout the aperture range. The APO design reduces the post-editing time substantially. Giving photographers the best image performance. 

Close focusing distance

The Argus 18mm can focus at a very close distance. Creating an extremely blurry background. It allows the photographer to capture different perspectives with details of the object.  The Laowa Argus 18mm f/0.95 MFT APO has a close focusing distance of 20cm.

Aperture Ring Click Switch Mechanism

The aperture ring click switch mechanism offers the photographer and videographer options to choose either clicked or de-clicked aperture ring. A great option for videographers when changing the aperture during shooting.

Low Focus Breathing

It features low-focus breathing, which is perfect for video shooting. It eliminates the distraction of the changes in the angle of view when moving the focus from one object to another.

Internal Focusing

As with other lenses in the Argus series, this lens also has the same internal focusing characteristics. It maximizes the optical performance in both infinity focus and minimum focusing distance by enhancing stability. Also, it prevents dust from getting into the lens. It is compatible with accessories designed to be set to a specific position like polarizers, and petal-shaped lens hoods. An absolute advantage for both photography and videography.
