Ultra Fast, Ultra Impact

An f/0.95 ultra-fast aperture is perfect for creating impactful images, easy to create a much shallower depth of field (DoF) for astonishing subject separation from the background. From portrait to low-light and astro-photography, the lens is able to capture every essence of light along the way.

The Faster The Aperture The Shallower The DoF

Creamy, Dreamy, Lovely Bokeh

A specialized lens for artistic bokeh in out-of-focus areas, while the in-focus area stays sharp. The 9-bladed aperture generates satisfying bokeh effects which help to create dreamy background for stunning portrait photography.

See Things Natural with 35mm Focal Length

Featuring a natural 61.9° angle of view, the 18mm focal length on the MFT sensor is equivalent to the 35mm focal length in full-frame format. The semi-wide focal length makes the lens extremely versatile to use, it is an everyday lens for portraits, landscape and street photography.

Getting Rid of Chromatic Aberration

Engineered with 2 ED glasses and 4 highly refractive glasses to suppress longitudinal and lateral chromatic aberration across in-focus & out-of-focus areas. Purple fringing and ghosting are controlled to the minimum throughout the aperture range. The APO design married with the fast aperture allows the lens to produce outstanding image performance for higher contrast and image fidelity.

Get Close with Your Objects

The 18mm f/0.95 lens has a minimum focusing distance of 20cm, it can create an extremely blurry background and capture different interesting perspectives while preserving objects’ details.

“Clicked”, “Unclicked”, “Clicked”

The Aperture Ring Click Switch Mechanism allows you to choose whether to have a clicked or silent aperture ring. It is a useful function to support both your photography and video needs.

Functional Structural Design

Same as other lenses in the Argus series, it is built with the internal focusing characteristic. Apart from preventing the lens from dusting, the optical performance in both infinity focus and minimum focusing distance is maximized by enhancing stability. It also helps to achieve a lower focus breathing effect, making the focus transition more natural. The lens is compatible with accessories designed to be set to a specific position like polarizers, and petal-shaped lens hoods.
