Laowa Magic Shift Converter (MSC) is an adapter specially designed to convert the Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D (Canon / Nikon mount) into a 17mm f/4 +/-10mm Shift lens and use it with the Sony full frame E-mount cameras. With the MSC, you can have precise vertical lines rather than converging lines while shooting. This is a must have super useful feature in architecture and interior photography.

Laowa Magic Shift Converter (MSC) took advantage of the short flange distance of mirrorless cameras and incorporated a patented optics system into the converter.The patented optical system in the MSC will enlarge the image circle of the 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D from 43.2mm to 60mm in diameter and convert it a 17mm f/4 lens with +/- 10mm shift capability. The camera can be rotated through a 360 degree full circle, allowing a quick switch between landscape and portrait framing or in changing the shift direction.

LAOWA MFC comprises of 5 elements in 4 groups, with 2 Extra Refractive elements. The optical structure is carefully designed, giving minimal impact on the image quality of the Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D lens. It will also cancel out some of the chromatic aberrations and distortion of some ultra-wide angle lenses. Therefore the close-to-zero distortion feature on the Laowa12mm lens can also be retained.

Laowa MSC will come with 2 variants, Canon EF to Sony E & Nikon AI to Sony E. The Canon EF to Sony E version is open for Pre-order now, expected to start shipping in late July / early Aug 2017. The Nikon F / AI to Sony E version will be available later. The SRP price is expected to be £299.00
