  1. :

    Fine lens,
    just wondering where I can find LIghtroom presets
    for this lens.

    Greetings, Rek

    • :

      Sorry that we do not have LR presets.

  2. :

    is this compatible with nikon d610? or do i need an adaptor?

    • :

      Yes. It is compatible with Nikon D610. No adapter needed.

  3. :

    Is this compatible with Sony A99, full frame?

    • :

      Hi Wallace,
      Yes it is compatible with Sony A99. Thanks

  4. :

    I need to choose Sony FE for Sony a7 right?

    • :

      Hi Sir,


  5. :

    What adapter do I need for sony alpha 5100 camera? Thanks

    • :

      Hi Marc, PLease kindly place the order for Sony FE mount. It can be used with Sony A5100.

  6. :

    I see there are two options for Sony E mount:Sony FE and Sony Nex with adapter. I have Sony FE mount(A7) and E mount(Nex 5r). Which one should I order to use on both mounts? Is it possible?

    • :

      Hi Ken, Please use the Sony FE mount. It works with both A7 and Nex5r. Thanks.

  7. :

    Hallo. What should i take when i work with a Sony Alpha 77?

    • :

      Hi Stefan,
      Please use Sony A mount.

  8. :

    (1) If I want to use this lens on M43 Lumix GH3, presumably I have to fit this with an adaptor, or do you make a version with the extended rear end, built as one unit?

    (2) On M43, what will the effective focal length become, and the angle of view?

    (3) will attaching to M43 affect the nearest focusing distance to maintain an object at 1:1?

    (4) fantastic idea, do you have plans for something which will be even wider focal length on M43?

    (5) Please?

    Many thanks, best wishes

    • :

      1) We did not make it for native M43 mount (built-in adapter) but a lot of our customers use this lens on M43 system with an adapter.
      2) It will become 30mm (like all other lenses in the market with 2X crop factor)
      3) No it will not.
      4) We are planning to release a 12mm FF lens within 2016 (without Macro)

  9. :

    a) What is the difference between these specifications?
    Min. working distance 0.47 cm (1:1)
    Min. shooting distance 12 cm

    b)What is the min. focus distance?

    c) Are these distance from the image sensor? or from the extremity of the lens?

    • :

      Distance from object to front elements at 1:1 = 0.47mm
      Distance from object to Sensor at 1:1 = 12cm

  10. :

    Hi, would it work with Nikon D90 APS-C?

    • :

      yes it works with Nikon D90

  11. :

    I use three Sony Cameras : A900 (A mount), A7R2 (FE mount) and A6100 (E mount). Can I use one “LAOWA 15mm f/4 Wide Angle 1:1 Macro Lens” with “specific adapter” for the 3 cameras ?

    • :

    From the Specifications: Shift (for APS-C sensors only) +/- 6 mm
    What is the shift distance for Full Frame Camera?
    Can we remove the Sony adapter on the laowa 15mm?
    If can be removed, what the native mount?

    • :

      Shift distance for FF cameras is around +/- 3mm without vignetting. You can order the specific mount (Canon / Nikon / Sony A / Pentax K / Sony FE), they are not interchangeable.
