Venus Optics Introduces the Laowa 14mm f4 Zero-D Lens for Full-Frame Cameras

Venus Optics has announced the release of its latest lens, the Laowa 14mm f/4 FF RL “Zero-D” lens for full-frame mirrorless camera systems.
As one of the smallest and lightest 14mm Zero Distortion ultra-wide-angle lens, the lens does not compromise on its performance. It is equipped with a 52mm filter thread so that urban explorers can simply put on the screw-in filter and create incredible images with ease.

The 14mm f/4 FF RL Zero-D delivers an extraordinary image sharpness with a 114° angle of view on a full-frame sensor while maintaining near-zero distortion and is composed of 13 elements in 9 groups. The 2 aspherical elements and 3 extra-low dispersion elements suppress the distortion to nearly Zero level from corner to corner.

A 52mm filter thread is available on the 14mm f/4 FF RL Zero-D. Photographers can take great landscape and cityscape pictures easily without carrying heavy filter holders. For photographers who opt to use slide-in filters, the specially designed magnetic filter holder allows them to use their 100mm-wide filters with no vignetting.

The 5-bladed aperture creates perfect 10-point Sunstar rendering. With just a simple stop down the aperture by 1 stop and can create the beautiful 10-point sunstars.

The Leica M mount of the 14mm f/4 FF RL Zero-D is equipped with rangefinder coupling to have a more accurate and easy focus. As for other mounts, there is a focus tab to improve stability and speed when focusing.

Here a gallery of sample images provided by Venus Optics:

The Laowa 14mm f/4 FF RL Zero-D weighs 228g and the measured dimension is 58 x 59mm and is available in Leica M, Leica L, Canon RF, Sony FE and Nikon Z mounts. Two different colors (black and silver) are offered for the Leica M mount.

All versions retail for $549, with the exception of the Leica M mount, which retails for $649. Shipping will start in late September for all but the Leica M and Canon RF mount versions, which will see the first shipments go out in late October.
