Venus Optics Laowa 15mm F4 Macro Fullframe E-Mount Lens offers true 1:1 magnification with ultra-wide perspective on full-frame cameras. Get exceptionally close to their subjects with a minimum focus distance of just 4.7″, and fill the frame, while still capturing a wide view. Internal focusing further assists by not disturbing your subject, even when you reach the 0.2″ minimum working distance.
Optically, it is designed to minimize distortion that plagues wide-angle lenses with the use of an advanced 12 element in 9 group construction with one extra-low dispersion and three high-refractive elements. Multi-layer low-reflective coating improves image quality by reducing the appearance of flare and ghosting. When used on APS-C cameras, or in crop mode, the lens offers +/- 6mm of vertical shift which can help correct for perspective when shooting objects such as buildings.
Full manual operation is required with this lens through the use of a physical aperture ring with a range of f/4 to f/32 and a large focusing ring. A flat front element provides room for a 77mm front filter thread. It has a near circular 14-blade diaphragm for smooth out of focus elements and comes with a lens hood.
