Venus Optics has recently launched the Laowa 15mm f/2 Zero-D LM lens, designed exclusively for Leica users. The lens is perfect for photographers capturing breathtaking landscape, architecture, interior, street, and astrophotography images. The lens has a focal length of 15mm and offers a 110° ultra-wide angle of view, allowing photographers to capture stunning and eye-opening ultra-wide shots.
The Laowa 15mm f/2 Zero-D LM lens boasts a large aperture of f/2, which allows users to capture stunning low-light photography or shallow depth-of-field photos. The lens is also ideal for capturing stunning night and astrophotography shots.
The lens comprises 12 elements in 9 groups with 2 aspherical elements that help minimise distortion, making it the perfect choice for architecture and landscape photographers. The lens also features a close-to-zero distortion feature that saves time during post-editing.
With a closest focusing distance of just 15cm, the Laowa 15mm f/2 Zero-D LM allows photographers to get closer to their subject, creating clear and dazzling images with a shallow depth-of-field and pretty bokeh effect.
The lens comes with a 72mm filter thread lens hood, which makes it easy for photographers to screw on any ND/CPL/Night filters for shooting in extreme situations.
It is also compatible with M-E or M-Z autofocus adaptor, which can turn the lens into an autofocus one for Sony and Nikon users. The lens also supports rangefinder coupling on Leica M cameras, providing an accurate and easy focus for Leica users.
The Laowa 15mm f/2 Zero-D LM also features 6-bit coding, allowing users to mark the lens themselves for recognition by M cameras and recorded in the EXIF.
The Laowa 15mm f/2 Zero-D LM is available for purchase on the Venus Optics website and from authorised dealers. The US price for the lens is $649. Please visit for more information about the Laowa 15mm f/2 Zero-D LM lens https://www.venuslens.net/?post_type=product&p=47608&preview=true.
