World’s Widest rectilinear f/2 lens for Micro Four Third cameras.
This lens is currently the widest rectilinear lens available for Micro Four Thirds cameras. It gives a field of view equivalent to a 15 mm lens on 35 mm sensors. This allows MFT users to enjoy an impressive 110° ultra wide angle of view for a broad range of shooting. The wide angle of view and ultra-fast aperture are extremely valuable for astro-photography. This lens is super compact and lightweight for casual on-the-go use. A ultra-light version is also available for aerial photography usage.
The Laowa 7.5mm f/2 MFT is compatible with Panasonic, Olympus & Blackmagic cameras with Micro Four Thirds lens mounts. The lightweight version is specially designed for drones & gimbal usage. Please note: the lens has no electronic connections with the drones/gimbals and therefore, there is no electronic control of the aperture or focus.
The Laowa 7.5mm f/2 MFT is the widest f/2 rectilinear lens ever designed for Micro Four Thirds cameras. Despite the impressive specifications, Laowa has successfully reduced the weight to less than 200 g (7 oz.) and length to only 55 mm (2.16 in.) long. The optical performance and distortion control are outstanding.
This lens loves working in dark and difficult lighting conditions. The extreme 110° angle of view and ultra-fast f/2 aperture allow photographers to create impressive astro-photography shots with ease. It also gives photographers a fast wide angle option for low-light, architectural and landscape photography.
Due to its compact, lightweight design, the Laowa 7.5mm f/2 MFT is excellent for Vlog and lifestyle videography, like weddings, travel, music videos, etc. This small lens is a perfect match with your gimbal or stabilizer, letting you shoot videos with ease and efficiency. No need to carry big, bulky and heavy equipment ever again! More video samples can be found on the “Testimonials” page.
Beyond its small form factor, this lens also features a notable optical design that incorporates two aspherical elements and three Extra-low dispersion elements to control distortion and aberrations for improved clarity and sharpness. The front has a 46mm thread for screw-in filters – offering creative and exposure control for landscape photography.
This feather-weight lens opens up a new opportunity for photographers to shoot wider coverage with gimbals and drones. Thanks to its compact size, the lens perfectly pairs up with compact Micro Four Thirds cameras as an ideal every-day lens.
The Standard & Lightweight versions of the Laowa 7.5mm f/2 are now available. They share the same optical design but differ in weight. Both have metal construction, but, we carefully designed and replaced some of the materials to lower the weight from 200 g (Standard) to 150 g (Lightweight). The Lightweight version is specially designed to work with drones.
