Venus Optics Laowa 15mm f/2 FE Zero-D Lens for Sony E

The Venus Optics Laowa 15mm f/2 FE Zero-D Lens for Sony E is the ultra wide, fast and compact prime for your Sony full frame E mount camera. This lens is currently the fastest in its class, offering a superb optical quality for the Full Frame Sony E mount camera. It features close-to-zero distortion with a 110-degree angle of view. The ultra-fast aperture f/2 enables photographers to capture impressive astro shots very easily. The 72mm filter thread allows a quick installation of filters for landscape shooting. This lens is going to be an everyday lens for most of us given its compact size (62mm long) and weight (only ~500g).

Super Light and Compact

The Laowa 15mm f/2 FE Zero-D is currently the widest f/2 rectilinear lens in the market which comes with a native E mount (i.e. does not require additional adapters). It is an ultra-wide and ultra-fast prime lens which covers both 35mm full-frame and APS-C sensors. Despite the extreme specifications, Venus Optics has successfully minimized the weight of the lens to around 500g (~1.1 pounds) and 8cm long. This compact and light lens consists of 12 elements in 9 groups with 2 aspherical elements and 3 extra-low dispersion elements. The patented optical design successfully minimizes the distortion and chromatic aberrations to its lowest but at the same time, delivers a superb optical performance from corners to corners.

72mm Filter Thread

Ultra-wide and fast lenses in the market tend to be huge and have a dome-shaped front element. It is a headache for landscape photographers who need to use filters very often. Venus Optics understand their needs and manage to design a flat front surface and include a 72mm filter thread into the lens. 72mm screw-on filters can be used and no more investment on bulky filter holder is required.

Ultra Wide and Ultra Fast

The extreme 110-degree angle of view and ultra-fast f/2 aperture allow photographers to create impressive astro-photography shots with ease. It also gives photographers a fast and wide-angle option for landscape photography and low-light shooting.

Close-to-Zero Distortion

The Laowa 15mm f/2 FE Zero-D is the second member of the Close-to-Zero distortion line-up from Venus Optics, followed the launch of 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D last year. The lens is specially designed to remove the optical distortion commonly exist in wide angle lenses at infinity focus. Any straight lines will be retained.

Focus as Close as 15cm

Photographers can take advantage of the super close focusing distance (i.e. 15cm) and the f/2 aperture to create some bokeh shots and wide angle close-up shots.

Handy for Videographers

The new Laowa 15mm f/2 FE Zero-D is specially designed with an aperture switch which allows users to quickly switch between click-less and clicked aperture. This added feature will be extremely useful for videographers.
