This one’s been a long time in the making, but according to a teaser image, it seems that Venus Optics is finally getting ready to announce their Laowa 20mm f/4 C-Dreamer shift lens next week. The lens was first shown off way back in July 2021 at a photography show in Shanghai, China. It sure has been a wait but now it looks like the lens might finally be upon us.
According to last year’s report, the lens is expected to cover a full-frame sensor, a focal length of 20mm, a maximum aperture of f/4 and offer shift capabilities – but no tilt. The lens hasn’t been called out by name in the new teaser, however, the overall design and markings on the lens are clearly the same as the lens shown off in Shanghai as well as a second image that appears to have leaked.
