Your BEST everyday prime lens.
Laowa 17mm f/1.8 MFT is perfect for street, travel and everyday photography. Weighted 6oz (172g) only, this remarkably light, compact and agile lens serves as an exceptional complement to MFT cameras. It is a great tool that should be in every photographers’ kit bag. The wide angle of view(65°) pair with the large f/1.8 aperture can easily handle different lighting conditions. The lens houses nine elements in seven groups and has a seven-blade diaphragm to give a traditional Sunstar rendering in out-of-focus highlights. It has a minimum focus distance of 15cm and a 46mm filter thread.
