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’ll 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 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 and £979 for the Leica M fit.
