Lens Description

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

This prime can focus 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.

This version has a Nikon F lens mount. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Nikon F mount cameras with Full-Frame or smaller sensors. Venus also made this lens available for Canon EF, Pentax K, Sony A, Sony E, Canon RF, Nikon Z, Leica L mounts.
