The new Laowa 15mm f/4 1:1 Macro lens is the first lens in the market which possesses an ultra wide-angle of view and 1:1 Macro ability. This allows photographers to experience ‘Wide Angle Macro Photography’ without using an extension tube. Macro Lenses currently in the market tend to have a mid to long focal length and it limits users to take very close-up shots of insect or flowers, without showing much of the background details like its habitat or environment.
Some of the features include:
- 110 degrees viewing angle
- 1:1 macro ability with infinity focus
- +/- 6mm Shift ability
- 12 elements in 9 groups with 3 pieces of High Refractive elements and 1 piece of Extra-low dispersion lens
- Multi-layer low-reflective coatings to avoid unnecessary flare
- Carefully control on the sharpness both in the centre and the edge.
- Limited barrel distortion
- 14 pieces of aperture blades form a close-to-circular aperture
- Flat Front element surface for filter installation.
- The enclosure of the lens is made of metal to strengthen its durability.
- Full Frame Sensor Supported
