Lens Description

The Venus Laowa 4mm F/2.8 Circular Fisheye is an ultra-wide prime designed for cameras with a APS-C (1.5X) sensor. This bright prime has a 4mm focal-length. It provides the same field of view as a 6mm lens on a Full-Frame camera.

This prime can focus down to 8cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 0.11X. 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 APS-C (1.5X) sensors. Venus also made this lens available for Micro Four-Thirds, Fujifilm X, Canon M mounts.
