Laowa 4mm f/2.8 Fisheye


Featuring a one-of-a-kind 210° field of view, Laowa 4mm f/2.8 fisheye lens can create a circular fisheye perspective on Micro Four Thirds (M43) and APS-C cameras. The lens weighs only 4.8 oz (135 g) which makes it extremely portable and allows photographers to have creative shots in various shooting settings such as selfies, vlog, skateboard shooting, 360° panorama, VR imaging, virtual tours or even flying with drones.

Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D


Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D provides an ultra wide-angle coverage up to 113° angle of view. The f/2.8 maximum aperture is well-suited to working in low and difficult lighting conditions. Also, 2 aspherical elements plus 3 extra-low dispersion elements successfully correct chromatic aberration, realize close-to-zero distortion & deliver excellent corner to corner sharpness. The tiny size (60 x 53mm) & lightweight (215g) encourages the photographer and videographer to use it every day and it is a perfect match for gimbal and drone.

Laowa 24mm f/14 2X Macro Probe


Laowa 24mm f/14 2X Macro Probe is the world’s first consumer-grade probe lens which focuses from 2:1 macro to infinity and with a compelling wide angle ‘Bug Eye’ perspective. The front barrel of the lens is waterproof and an LED ring light is mounted at the tip of the lens which makes the lens capable for shooting in wet or dusty environments or with fine powders. Create with no limits.

Laowa 9mm T2.9 Zero-D Cine


Laowa 9mm T2.9 Cine provides an ultra-wide-angle coverage up to 113° angle of view. The tiny size & light weight match perfectly with mirrorless cameras and are suitable for use with gimbals. The new Cine version comes with standard 0.8 mod gears on both aperture and focus rings. A standard 55mm filter thread is designed to mount screw-in filters easily. 2 aspherical elements plus 3 extra-low dispersion elements successfully correct chromatic aberration, realize close-to-zero distortion & deliver excellent corner to corner sharpness.

Laowa 15mm T2.1 Zero-D Cine


Laowa 15mm T2.1 Cine provides an ultra-wide-angle coverage up to 110° on a Full Frame camera system. It is currently the widest T2.1 lens in the market covering large format sensors. The large T2.1 aperture also makes it extremely useful to shoot in low light situations. The tiny size & light weight makes it a perfect companion with gimbals and run-and-gun shooting. The new Cine version comes with standard 0.8 mod gears on both aperture and focus rings. A standard 77mm filter thread is designed to mount screw-in filters easily. The lens also features a superb optical distortion control with all straight lines retained.
