Ultra Wide and Fast with Superb Optical performance
The Laowa 7.5mm f/2 MFT is the widest f/2 rectilinear lens ever designed for Micro Four Thirds Cameras. Despite the extreme specifications, Venus Optics has successfully minimized the weight of the lens to a less than 200g and 55mm long. The optical performance and distortion is controlled to its finest.
Perfect for Astro, Architecture & Landscape photography
The extreme 110 angle of view and ultra-fast f/2 aperture allows photographers to create impressive astro-photography shots with ease. It also gives photographers a fast and wide-angle option for low-light shooting as well as landscape photography.
Compact, Light, Easy to install filters
The lens comes with a 46mm filter thread which can gives additional portability for landscape photography with screw-in filters.
Light-weight option for Aerial Photography
The feather-light weight opens up a new opportunity for photographers to shoot wider footage with gimbals and drones. Thanks to the compact size, the lens also pairs up with the compact Micro Four Thirds cameras very well and is believed to be an ideal every-day lens.
Standard & Light-weight versions available
2 versions (Standard & Lightweight) of Laowa 7.5mm f/2 will be available to pre-order. They shared the same optical design but have a different weight. Although both of them are still metallic build, we carefully designed and replaced some of the materials to cut the weight from slightly less than 200g (Standard) to 150g (Lightweight). The Light-weight version is specially designed to work with drones.
