The newly released Micro Four Thirds version of the Laowa 9mm Zero-D lens is geared to be an ideal lens for both photo and video work.
If you’re still looking for a distortion-free wide angle lens for both photo and video work with your Micro Four Thirds camera, Venus Optics comes forward with a solution. The lens manufacturer has just announced the M43 variant of the Laowa 9mm f2.8 Zero-D lens, which they are marketing as a perfect lens for video work. As with the Laowa 7.5mm f2 MFT, another wide-angle lens made available for the M43 system, this new lens sports an ultra-compact body and boasts of exceptional image quality. It also promises a more natural perspective for shooting videos using the Panasonic GH5 and Blackmagic Pocket Camera. Weighing only 210g (0.46 lbs) and measuring only 60mm (2.3 in) long, it’s designed to be compressed to be as minimal as possible in its class. If you’re frequently shooting with gimbals, you might find the lightweight design and 100° angle of view especially handy.
