Photographers in the market for a zero distortion ultra wide-angle lens may be interested in a new lens that has been created by Venus Optics and launched via Kickstarter this month.
With still 28 days remaining on the campaign the optics company has already raised over $252,000 for the world’s widest f/2.8 lens for Full Frame cameras with “Invisible Distortion, Superb Optical Quality” and small form factor.
Check out the video below to learn more about the Laowa 12mm f/2.8 lens which is currently the World’s Widest f/2.8 Rectilinear Lens for Full Frame cameras sales creators and supports Canon EF, Nikon AI, Sony A, Pentax K and Sony E mounts.
Ultra Wide Angle Lens is one of the most important lens that every photographer should have one in his camera bag. There are a lot of wide angle lenses in the market, offering from a few hundred to a a few thousand dollars. However, these UWA lens are not perfect. They are suffering from dramatic barrel distortion (2-5%), poor peripheral sharpness or huge physical size. We therefore spend a lot of time to come up with a design which is truly perfect and overcome the frustration of photographers. That’s where the LAOWA 12mm f/2.8 ZERO-D comes from.
