Sony E mount. This ultra-wide fast-aperture lens was designed for use on Sony E-mount cameras. You can also use it on APS-C cameras, on which it’ll give you a 22.5mm-equivalent focal length.
Ultra Wide, Fast Aperture, Close Focus. The Venus Optics Laowa 15mm f/2 FE Zero-D’s f/2 aperture, 110° angle of view, and virtually distortion-free performance make it great for astrophotography and general low-light shooting. Its 72mm filter compatibility means it excels at landscape shooting, while you can use its 6-inch minimum focusing distance and ultra-wide perspective to get great bokeh shots and wide-angle close-ups.
Virtually Distortion-Free. This lens’s rectilinear nine-group/twelve-element optical design keeps distortion at an absolute minimum. It includes two aspherical elements and three extra-low dispersion elements which help to eliminate chromatic aberrations and color fringing. The Frog Eye coating keeps the front element clear of dust and moisture, allowing you to work in inclement conditions.
Fully Manual Lens. This is a fully manual lens that provides no electronic communication with the camera. You must manually make all aperture and focus adjustments on the lens itself, and lens information is not transferred through EXIF data. A dedicated switch lets you quickly de-click the manual aperture ring for smooth, quiet rotation that’s great for video.
