Laowa unveils super-wide, non-fisheye lens

Posted on Jul 24, 2020

The Laowa 9mm f/5.6 FF RL lens is the widest non-fisheye lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras, surpassing Laowa’s own 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6. The new 9mm f/5.6 has a 135° angle-of-view so it will be great for interiors and scenics alike, and ideal for exaggerating the feeling of openness and space. With a minimum focusing distance of just 12cm, you can get in really close to produce some very powerful compositions with this lens.

The lens features a 14 elements in 10 group construction and its aperture range, with a five-blade iris, is f/5.6 to f/22. It can be used with compatible 100mm magnetic filter holders. It is a very compact lens, too, weighing 350g and measuring just 66mm in length.

This remarkable ultra-wide is available in Leica M, L-Mount, Nikon Z and Sony FE, and it’s priced at £869 (£979 for the Leica M fit).
