Venus Optics is very well known for its line-up of niche macro and ultra-wide lenses. Their newest lens release is certainly no different.
The new Laowa 15 mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift is a long-awaited lens and it is one interesting option (I would say) for mirrorless shooters as the market options for mirrorless shift lenses are pretty scarce. It’s also important to note that at this moment, it is the widest shift lens on the market for full-frame and medium format cameras with ±11mm shift for full-frame cameras and ±8mm shift for medium format cameras.
Coming in at just $1,199.00, this lens is almost half the price of the similar and well-known Canon 17 mm TS-E lens, so it is also a good budget option for the people that are just getting into architectural photography.
At this moment, I don’t have the option to test this lens, so I am providing you a review by Dustin Abbott where it is possible to see how the lens is holding up in comparison with other ultra-wide lenses.
If you want to get more info about the Laowa 15 mm f/4.5 Zero-D lens, it is available on the Venus Optics Website.
