Remarkable 126° angle of view

Built-in 62mm Filter Thread

It is equipped with 62 mm filter thread for using screw-in filters. It is very convenient for attaching the filter to the lens directly. Great for users who don’t want to carry any filter holders.

Supreme Image Quality

11mm F4.5 FF RL is composed of 14 elements in 10 groups which deliver a remarkable image sharpness. Although it is not a Zero-D lens , the 2 aspherical elements and 3 extra-low dispersion elements suppress chromatic aberrations and distortion to the minimum.

Extremely Close Focusing Distance

The lens features an extremely close focusing distance of 7.4″ / 19cm (from subject to sensor) for photographers to create macro-like shots with the ultra-wide perspective. It can also create a nice “over the shoulder shot” that gives you a sense of presence.

Stunning 10-point Sunstars

Laowa 11mm F4.5 FF RL is designed with 5-bladed aperture where a clean and appealing 10-point sunstar rendering can be created.

Super Compact and lightweight

The lens is designed to achieve high mobility, compactness and lightness to give photographers more flexibility in travelling. The tiny lens is only 6.3cm(2.5 inch) in height & weight 254g(8.9oz). Perfect for travel or landscape photographers.

100mm Filter Holder

Despite the ultra-wide angle of view, the lens can use a specially designed filter holder that 100mm-wide filters can be used without serious vignetting. It gives photographers an extra option apart from the screw-in filters.
