Laowa 17mm f/1.8 MFT Lens (Black)

$ 149.00






The Laowa 17mm f/1.8 for Micro Four Thirds (M43) cameras. It is the 4th wide angle lens that LAOWA has designed for MFT mirrorless cameras, following the success of their ultra-wide 7.5mm f/2, 9mm f/2.8 and 4mm f/2.8 fisheye lenses. The LAOWA 17mm is equivalent to a 34mm angle of view on a full-frame sensor. The lens houses nine elements in seven groups, and has a seven-blade diaphragm to give a pleasing sunstar rendering. The lens is compact and weighs just 6oz (172g). It has a minimum focus distance of 5.9 inches/15cm from the sensor and has a 46mm filter thread. Weighting only 6oz (172g), this remarkably light, compact and agile lens serves as the perfect complement to MFT cameras. It is a great tool for still-lifes, close-ups, street and travel photography and should be in every photographers’ kit bag. An ultra-fast f/1.8 maximum aperture not only creates smooth bokeh with its rounded 7blade diaphragm, but also offers great low-light performance. Despite the f/1.8 fast aperture, sharp and high-contrast images can be captured at any aperture – even wide open! It is an ideal lens for portraits, groups, landscapes, travel and all-purpose imaging

This lens has a 5.9” (15cm) minimum focusing distance that greatly benefits shooting details and smaller subjects. Photographers can make use of the “Mini-macro” feature to capture close-up shots with shallower depth of field, creating smooth outof-focus renderings and impressive subject separation from the background. light body, the 17mm f/1.8 lens is a portable, on-the-go option for videographers - both handheld and on gimbals. The high-performance optical design incorporates one ED (extra-low dispersion) glass element that delivers high-definition images while minimizing ghosting and flare, broadening your shooting potential in challenging situations.
