It’s useful for a range of photographic scenarios such as architecture, street and landscape photography. The bright f/2.8 maximum aperture is well-suited to shoot impressive astrophotography or even nightscapes.

Close to Zero Optical Distortion (ZERO-D)

The Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D Lens has successfully overcome the problem of barrel distortion encountered in ultra wide angle lenses. The  design of the lens significantly reduces rectilinear distortion to a level that can barely be noticed.

Class leading Optical Performance

The optical construction of the lens comprising of 16 elements in 10 groups, including 2 aspherical elements and 3 extra-low dispersion elements.

Consistent Lens Sharpness

The lens employs a floating optical system that ensures a constant level of sharpness throughout the entire focussing range. So it doesn’t matter if your focused all the way to infinity for an early morning landscape or focused as close as you can at 18cm for some wide angle macro shots you can rest assured the lens will still be able to produce sharp images.

Infinity Focus

By stopping the focusing ring exactly at infinity allows you to easily set the focus to infinity even in low light conditions. This accurate infinity lets you shoot difficult to focus subjects, such as lightning, stars or fireworks in dark shooting situations.


Dual Lens Hood

The lens features 2 lens hoods – a removable large petal shaped lens hood that helps reduce flare and ghosting when working in strong lighting conditions as well as a smaller fixed hood that protects the front element in case the lens is placed face down.
