The new Laowa 19mm f/2.8 Zero-D GFX lens rumoured last week has now officially been announced. As the “GFX” part of the name suggests, the lens has been designed for Fujifilm medium format GFX mount cameras. At 19mm, this is already an extremely wide lens, even if it were for full-frame, but on the larger medium format sensor, it gives a field of view equivalent to that of about a 15mm lens on full-frame.
This means that it has a super wide 110-degree field of view, with a nice bright f/2.8 maximum aperture, making it an ideal lens for all kinds of subjects from landscapes and cityscapes to architecture and even astrophotography. Being one of Laowa’s Zero-D lenses means it has virtually no spherical distortion, and despite being a medium format lens, it comes with a pretty pleasing price tag.
