$ 1,199.00 $ 1,079.00






Pairing an exceptionally wide field of view with the ability to correct for perspective distortion, the Nikon Z-mount Laowa 15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift from Venus Optics is an ideal lens for architecture and interior applications. The broad 110° angle of view is complemented by an impressive +/- 11mm shift range to compensate for unwanted converging lines and keystone distortion. This shift control is further complemented by a 360° rotation mechanism applying the movements in various directions for to suit both horizontal and vertical orientation shooting. Additionally, as part of the Zero-D lens series, this 15mm f/4.5 also renders scenes with a high degree of accuracy and very low distortion.

In terms of optics, two aspherical elements and three extra-low dispersion elements are featured, which reduce both spherical and chromatic aberrations for high sharpness and clarity. An anti-reflective coating also helps to control flare and ghosting for heightened contrast and color rendering. The lens uses a manual focus design for working with subjects as close a 7.9" away and has a five-blade diaphragm for producing distinct 10-point sun stars.

  • Ultra-wide lens is designed for FX-format Nikon Z-mount mirrorless cameras but can also be used with DX models where it provides a 22.5mm equivalent focal length.
  • As part of the Zero-D series, this lens has a rectilinear design that renders subjects with minimal distortion in order to suit architectural, interior, and landscape applications.
  • Integrated +/- 11mm of shift adjustment helps to correct perspective distortion and eliminate keystone distortion.

  • Two aspherical elements limit spherical aberrations and distortion for improved sharpness and accurate rendering.
  • Three extra-low dispersion elements reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for increased clarity and color neutrality.
  • Updated anti-reflective coating suppresses flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
