Laowa Large Aperture Lenses - Argus Ultra-fast lens

[Argus] Laowa Ultra-Fast Aperture Series

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).
