Lomography has just announced the Atoll Ultra-Wide Art lens. It’s a 17mm f/2.8 lens designed for full-frame digital mirrorless cameras, as well as for rangefinder film and digital cameras. It lets you get ultra-wide shots while staying close to your subject, and it seems like an interesting lens that could take you more towards an experimental side.

The Atoll Ultra-Wide Art lens comes in mirrorless Canon RF, Nikon Z, and Sony E mounts, and M-mount for film and digital Leicas. It offers a 103º field of view, and Lomo promises minimal distortion despite the super-wide angle.

As I mention, this lens lets you get close to your subject. The closest focusing distance with Canon RF, Nikon Z, and Sony E is 0.1m, whereas the M-mount version lets you shoot up to 0.25 m from your subject. The relatively fast aperture lets you shoot in lof+w light conditions, and you can use this lens for both stills and video.

Let’s check out the specs and some more photos:

  • Focal Length: 17 mm
