Venus Optics keeps expanding its family of lenses. A week after launching the L-mount version of its four lenses, the company is adding Canon RF and Nikon Z option to two more. The 65mm f/2.8 2x Ultra Macro APO is now available for Nikon Z, whereas Canon R shooters will be able to get the 11mm f/4.5 FF RL lens.
Laowa has today announced their new 11mm f/4.5 FF RL lens. It’s a tiny lens for its short focal length and wide field of view at only 58mm long and weighing a mere 254g. It’s a rectilinear lens, not a fisheye, and it’s designed to offer complete coverage on full-frame mirrorless cameras.
With a 126° field of view, the lens actually has a front 62mm filter thread. Laowa boasts it as the widest rectilinear lens ever made for full-frame that does actually have a filter thread. Despite its small stature, though, the price is a little more than some might hope for.
