Designed primarily for travel and reportage photography, Laowa have produced the smallest lens in its class at just 910mm in length and 70mm in diameter and weighing a meagre 496 grams makes this lens very convenient to carry just about anywhere. With no electronic connections. It can also be used on Sony's smaller APS-C sized sensors cameras, still giving a wide focal length of 15-27mm equivalent. As well as being a very capable performer, the lens has a straight 5 bladed aperture, carefully chosen to offer a pleasant 10-points sunstars rendering, making it an excellent tool for nightscape photography. Short focusing distance as close as 15cm (which is about the closest in its class) for some mini-macro shooting possibilities
The all metal barrel of the lens houses 14 elements in 10 groups with one extra-low dispersion element and two aspherical elements to deliver exceptional optical quality and performance. The angle of view is 102-130 degrees with internal manual focus which means the front element does not rotate. A rear filter slot is included to fit 37mm filters or an optional filter holder is available for 100mm wide filters (such as Gradient /ND Grads, or other 100mm filters). For Cinematic uses the aperture ring can be switched to de-clicked silent control of the aperture’s, the minimum aperture is F:22. With a high quality chromium FE mount to ensure a solid coupling between the camera body and the lens.
