Creamy bokeh created by large aperture lenses is always intoxicated. The smooth out-of-focus background instantly isolates the subject from any messy background. From the early day f/1.4 & f/1.2 lenses to the recent trending f/0.95 lenses, fast speed lenses always be the dream for many photographers. However, such fast aperture lenses always mean a sacrifice in image quality. And the choice of focal length is also very limited. Laowa’s Argus series goal is to give photographers more quality options on f/0.95 fast speed lenses from full-frame, APS-C to MFT formats. It would cover most of the mirrorless cameras (including Nikon Z, Sony E, Canon RF, Fuji X, MFT and more).
Laowa Argus 35mm f/0.95 FF is the FIRST full-frame 35mm with f/0.95 ultra-fast aperture. Makes it the fastest 35mm and widest f/0.95 lens in the market. The lens maximized the optical performance by using 1 ED glass element, 1 aspherical lens element and 4 high-refractive-index glass materials. The extraordinary shallow depth of field and dreamy bokeh created by f/0.95 is the trump card for portraits. In the meanwhile, its unbeatable performance in low light conditions for obtaining sharp and outstanding images makes it a must-have tool for every photographer and videographer.
Laowa 33mm f/0.95 CF APO is the first f/0.95 lens release by Venus Optics. Designed for the APS-C format, the lens adds a romantic dreamy atmosphere to your image. The shallow depth of field gives all the attention to the main subject and get the audience to immerse in the story. The lens also won EISA Awards 2021-2022 for Best product in the photography category (“Best manual lens”)
