Not entirely unexpectedly, Venus Optics has announced their new Laowa Argus 18mm f/0.95 MFT APO and Laowa Argus 25mm f/0.95 APS-C APO lenses. The addition of the two new lenses brings Laowa’s Argus line up to six lenses in total now, with two for MFT, two for APS-C and two for full-frame. Each pair offers a similar field of view range for each sensor format.
The two lenses announced today offer a 35mm full-frame equivalent field of view for MFT and APS-C users with the usual fast f/0.95 aperture for shooting in low light. The super shallow depth of field such an aperture offers also provides a dream-like quality to your photography or video. And on the subject of the latter, both feature an aperture ring click switch to de-click your aperture at will.
