Lens Description

The Venus Laowa 10-18mm F/4.5-5.6 FE is an ultra-wide zoom designed for cameras with a Full-Frame sensor. This variable-aperture zoom covers a 10mm to 18mm focal-range.

This zoom can focus down to 15cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 0.25X. The lens is not capable of autofocus and so the focus-distance must always be manually adjusted via the focus-ring.

This version has a Sony E lens mount. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Sony E mount cameras with Full-Frame or smaller sensors. Venus also made this lens available for Nikon Z mounts.
