Back in August 2019, Venus Optics launched Laowa 4mm f/2.8 fisheye lens, priced at only $199. It was originally created for MFT mount only, but Venus Optics will soon give you more options. The Laowa 4mm f/2.8 fisheye lens is coming soon in three new mounts: Sony E, Fuji X, and Canon EF-M.
This lens offers a super-wide 210° field of view and noticeable distortion. It practically sees behind itself, and it can be a great tool for creating 360° content. With this lens, you can make a 360° panorama with only two photos.
Here are the specs of the lens, currently only available in MFT mount:
|Laowa 4mm f/2.8 Fisheye|
