Laowa 15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift
Ultra-wide lenses are for unique and interesting points of view. Combine an ultra-wide lens with shift capability – moving the lens parallel to the image plane to gain greater control over line convergence and keystone effects – and you have some idea of what’s in store with this manual focus Laowa 15mm lens. Thanks to the huge 65mm image circle, the lens is available for full frame and medium format cameras and offers +/- 11 mm shift control (+/-8 mm for medium format) along with a 110-degree angle of view. The creative possibilities are enhanced even further by a 360-degree rotation mechanism that can be used to apply movements in both vertical and horizontal directions. The lens is available for seven different mounts for both DSLR and mirrorless cameras.
