Close-to-zero distortion

The Laowa 14mm f/4 FF RL Zero-D consists of 13 optical elements, arranged in 9 groups. Two aspherical lenses and three extra-low dispersion glasses reduce chromatic aberration and distortion to a minimum. The image generated by the lens is full of detail, color and contrast. The lens is ideal for architectural photography because all straight lines are preserved.

Perfect 10-point stars

When you close the 5-blade aperture, you get the effect of aesthetically pleasing and well-defined 10-point “stars”. They appear in the photo in place of the sun or other light sources, such as street lamps, car headlights or Christmas tree lights.

Surgical precision and attention to detail

Manual focusing with this lens is a pleasure. The ring works impeccably and with a perceptible resistance. The lens is marked with a depth of field (DOF) scale expressed in meters and feet. A convenient Focus Tab is an additional convenience, allowing you to precisely control the position of the focus ring. The aperture is set using a separate ring. For full values you will feel a distinct click, however nothing stands in the way of setting this parameter to intermediate values.

Standard thread for 52 mm filters

Despite its ultra-wide focal length, the lens has a traditional 52 mm wide circular filter thread. This is a very practical and convenient solution. You can easily install your favorite polarizing, ND or UV filters on the lens. Thanks to such design it is not necessary to use adapters for rectangular filters.
