Nikon F Mount. This ultra-wide angle lens was designed for use on Nikon FX-format F-mount cameras. The large 65mm image circle easily covers any full-frame sensor without vignetting. You can also use it on DX cameras, on which it’ll give you a 22.5mm equivalent focal length.
Shift and Rotation Functions. The Venus Optics Laowa 15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift for Nikon F has an extremely broad 110° angle of view that’s complemented by an impressive +/- 11mm shift range that helps compensate for converging lines and eliminate keystone distortion. The shift control works in combination with a 360° rotation mechanism that allows you to apply the shift in a range of directions to best suit shooting in horizontal and vertical orientations. The rotation mechanism has click stops at 15° increments for intuitive handling.
High-Quality Optics. This lens’s rectilinear optical design keeps distortion at bay, making it perfect for architectural, interior, and landscape photography. Its eleven-group/seventeen-aperture design includes two aspherical elements and three extra-low dispersion elements that help to eliminate chromatic aberrations and color fringing while keeping images sharp, while an updated anti-reflective coating reduces flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy when you’re shooting in strong lighting conditions.
Fully Manual Lens. The 15mm f/4.5 is a fully manual lens. Its floating optical system maintains a high level of performance throughout its focal range of 7.9 inches to infinity, and its five-blade diaphragm produces distinct 10-point sun stars.
Shift Lens Support Compatible. This lens is compatible with the Venus Optics Shift Lens Support for Laowa 15mm f/4.5, which is available as a separate rental item. It gives you improved mounting and makes it easier to shoot shift-type stitched panorama photos without parallax errors.
