Overview

10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 Sony FE Zoom Lens

This lens is currently the widest zoom lens available for full frame mirrorless cameras. Designed primarily for travel photography, we have managed to compress the size to the smallest in its class, less than 9.1 cm (3.6 in.) long and only 496 g (1.1 lb.). The 130° (10mm) to 102° (18mm) angle of view provides flexibility for photographers to compose landscape or architecture photos with ease. The aperture blade system is carefully designed to produce the best sun-star renderings among all UWA lenses on the market.

World's Widest FE Zoom Lens

This is currently the world’s widest native zoom lens for full frame mirrorless cameras. It provides a wide range of perspective from 130° (10mm) to 102° (18mm) and it is excellent for landscape or architecture photography.

Light & Compact

Designed primarily for travel photography, we have managed to compress the size to the smallest and lightest in its class, less than 9.1 cm (3.6 in.) and only 496g (1.1 lbs). Not only is it so much smaller than the other similar lenses in the market. it’s so much wider.

10-Stroke Sunstars

An ordinary sunstar rendering can often be a deal breaker for landscape photographers. Our new Laowa 10-18mm, however, has been carefully designed to incorporate 5 straight aperture blades to produce well-defined, sharp and clean 10-stroke sunstars.

37mm Rear Filter

A photographer cannot create a great landscape photo without using a filter. We have conveniently designed a 37mm filter thread into the back of the lens for photographers to use ND filters with ease.

Due to its extreme compact size, our lens is able to take 100mm-wide filter systems as opposed to the much bulkier and more expensive 150mm systems required by other UWA lenses.

A new Laowa 100mm magnetic front filter holder has been developed to accept 100mm-wide filters. Unlike conventional filter holder systems, with slots to hold the 100mm filters in place, we have developed a magnetic filter holder that lets you easily attach 100mm filters onto the holder. A special magnetic frame is available to convert most 100x100mm or 100x150mm filters into magnetic filters. This removes the inconvenience associated with slide-in filters, prevents light leaks and reduces or removes vignetting that usually occurs when using multiple filters. The magnetic holder can hold at least 2 100mm-wide filters without vignetting.

Close Focusing Distance

This lens features one of the closest focusing distances among all UWA lenses. It focuses as close as 15 cm (5.9 in.) from the sensor, which offers an additional degree of fun for making macro shots. Comparing other ultra-wide native FF Mirrorless lenses, the shortest focusing distance is only 28 cm (11 inc.) for the Sony 12-24mm and 16-35mm lenses and 30 cm (11.8 in.) Voigtlander 10mm, 12mm & 15mm lenses.

Click/Clickless Aperture

Laowa 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 is comprised of 14 elements in 10 groups with 2 aspheric elements and 1 Extra-Low dispersion element. The patented optical design successfully minimizes distortion and chromatic aberrations to its lowest levels, while delivering superb optical performance from edge to edge.
