Laowa 12 mm f/2.8 Zero-D Lens with Ultra-Wide Angle View and 0.2x Macro Power for Canon RF (Black)

The Laowa 12 mm f2.8 Zero-D lens is the world’s widest f2.8 lens with close-to-zero distortion. Featuring the widest angle of view (122 degree) ever offered from an f2.8 lens, this is an ideal lens for a wide variety of shooting situations. From landscape, architecture, interior, and travel to the most important, astro photography.  The lens is the lightest and most compact lens in its class. It is ideal for everyday shooting. It also features close-to-zero optical distortion, allowing photographers to take landscape or architecture shots with straight lines retained. Laowa’s exclusive water and dust-repelling ‘Frog Eye Coating’ is added to the front element of the lens. For maximum creativity, you can use CPL or ND filters by adding an optional Laowa 100 mm filter holder system. It is made to be mounted on the Canon RF and is available in Black color.
Close-to-Zero Distortion
Most Ultra Wide Angle lenses suffer from an optical distortion rate of 2-5 percent which causes straight lines to bend. Laowa Zero-D lenses are so well corrected, that they achieve a close-to-zero distortion rate that is truly amazing.
Ultra-Wide Angle of View
The Laowa 12 mm f2.8 Lens covers an ultra-wide 122-degree angle of view, allowing you to create an outstanding landscape or architectural shot not possible with lesser lenses. Shooting interior shots will also become much easier. Your house will become spacious and impactful in your photos, even if you are shooting in tight spaces. Don’t forget, this is the world’s widest rectilinear f2.8 lens.
Superb Optical Quality
The optical design features 16 lens elements in 10 groups with 3 pieces of Extra-Low Dispersion Elements and 2 pieces of Aspherical Elements. This patented optical design delivers a high resolution from corner to corner, even in wide-open or f2.8 situations. Chromatic Aberration has also been controlled to the minimum.
Easy to Carry
Weighing only 609 g, this is an everyday carry-around lens. It is really small compared to other UWA lenses in the market. Finally, you don’t need to bring a hefty piece of glass for work and travel. And you can now attach 2 pieces of 100 mm ND filters and 1 piece of 105 mm CPL filter without worrying about vignetting, with the LAOWA 100mm filter holder system. Create your best landscape photos ever.
Perfect for Astrography
The Laowa 12 mm f2.8 Zero-D is currently the fastest full-frame, non-fisheye 12 mm lens in the market. Astro photographers will truly appreciate our efforts to create a fast, well-corrected lens. The ultra-fast aperture can effectively shorten the exposure time required and help to achieve more details of the night sky. This is proven to be the perfect tool for a nice Milky Way shot. The fast aperture is also very convenient for low-light and indoor shooting.
Useful for Panorama
The 122-degree angle of view with close-to-zero distortion is too good to be true for panorama shooting.
0.2x Macro Power
The Laowa 12 mm f2.8 Zero-D adopts a floating optical design to ensure exceptional sharpness not only at infinity but also at close focusing distances. Along with an 18 cm minimal focusing distance and 0.2x maximum magnification, this lens is also a fun tool for creating some mini wide-angle macros.
‘Frog Eye’ Coating
Laowa would like to introduce the Laowa Water and Dust Repelling ‘Frog Eye’ Coating (FEC). Every Laowa 12 mm f2.8 Zero-D is coated with the new Laowa ‘Frog Eye’ Coating. It gives your lens an extra layer of protection.
