Laowa 15mm f/4.0 Canon EF Mount Manual Focus Lens
World’s Widest 1:1 Macro Lens
Featuring an ultra-wide 110° angle view, with 1:1 maximum magnification, allowing users to focus very close to the subject but at the same time, include background details. Added with a +/- 4mm feature, this lens is an ultimate creative tool for landscape, macro and architectural shooting.
Superb Optical Performance from infinity focus to 1:1 magnification
The new Laowa 15mm f/4 1:1 Macro lens is the first lens on the market to possess an ultra wide angle view and 1:1 macro ability. This allows photographers to start experiencing the rather undeveloped field of ‘Wide Angle Macro Photography’ without using an extension tube. Macro lenses currently on the market tend to have a mid to long focal length and they limit users to take very close-up shots of small subjects, without showing much background detail like floral/insect habitat or environments.
Coated with anti-reflective process
Every piece of glass is coated with anti-reflective coating to prevent any flares or ghosting.
Metallic build plus +/- 6mm shift function
The lens can also serve as an excellent ultra-wide angle lens with infinity focus for cameras with full-frame sensors. A shift mechanism is added at the rear of the lens with a maximum adjustment of +/- 6mm for APS-C cameras, which is extremely useful for landscape/architecture photography for distortion correction.
The lens houses 12 elements in 9 groups with 3 pieces of High Refractive elements and 1 piece of Extra-low dispersion elements to deliver crystal sharpness from the center to the edge of the image. Barrel Distortion was also carefully controlled. 14 pieces of aperture blades form a close-to-circular aperture, capable of creating creamy shallow depth of field. The enclosure of the lens is made of metal to strengthen its durability.
