Lens Description

The Venus Laowa 15mm F/4 Macro is an ultra-wide prime designed for cameras with a Full-Frame sensor. This prime has a 15mm focal-length.

This prime can focus down to 12.2cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 1X. 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 Leica L lens mount. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Leica L mount cameras with Full-Frame or smaller sensors. Venus also made this lens available for Canon EF, Nikon F, Pentax K, Sony A, Sony E mounts.
