Venus Optics has announced the Laowa 14mm F4 Zero-D full-frame lens for Canon and Nikon DSLRs.
The lens consists of 13 elements with 10 elements, including two extra-low dispersion elements and two aspherical elements. Like other Zero-D lenses, it offers virtually zero distortion despite its wide field of view.
In the description of the new product, the manufacturer also notes the low weight (320 g in the Canon EF version and 360 g in the Nikon F version) and emphasizes that the lens has a completely different optical device compared to the Laowa 14mm f / 4 FF RL Zero lens released last year. D for mirrorless cameras.
In addition, it is the first lens to feature what Venus Optics calls “Focus Scale Adjustment System.” It makes it very easy to calibrate the infinity point. The calibration process is shown in a short video:
The lens is equipped with a built-in processor for electronic aperture control in the case of Canon cameras and an aperture drive for Nikon cameras. The minimum focusing distance is 14.5 cm. The aperture is formed by five blades. Filters with a diameter of 67 mm can be attached to the lens. The largest diameter of the lens itself is 72.5 mm. The Canon EF mount version is 75mm, and the Nikon F mount version is 73mm. Both versions cost the same – $ 499.
