Venus Optics announced an ultra wide prime lens for the Canon EOS M system (and other mirrorless systems), the Laowa 9mm f2.8 Zero-D lens. “Zero-D” stays for “zero distortion”.

The new Laowa 9mm f2.8 can be pre-ordered at Venus Optics’ site for $499.


This exciting prime provides ultra wide-angle coverage up to 113° angle of view which is the widest in its class. The tiny size & light weight match perfectly with mirrorless cameras and are suitable to use with gimbals. 2 aspherical elements plus 3 extra-low dispersion elements successfully correct the chromatic aberration, realize a close-to-zero distortion & deliver a corner to corner sharpness.
