Lens Description

The Venus Laowa 12mm F/2.8 Zero-D is an ultra-wide prime designed for cameras with Full-Frame sensors. This bright prime has a 12mm focal-length.

This prime is capable of focusing down to 18cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 0.2X. The lens is not capable of autofocus and so the focus-distance must always be manually adjusted via the focus-ring.
