- Aperture Range: f/2 (T3.2) to f/22
- One Apodization Element for Smooth Bokeh

Designed to provide a wealth of control over out-of-focus quality and to enhance bokeh, the Laowa 105mm f2 Smooth Trans Focus Lens from Venus Optics is a short telephoto prime designed for full-frame Sony A-mount cameras. The unique optical design incorporates an apodization (APD) element, as well as two separate diaphragms—8- and 14-blade—to provide separate adjustment over the bokeh as well as the exposure and depth of field. This APD element functions as a radially graduated neutral density filter, and as such limits the light transmission to a T-stop value of 3.2, while permitting the depth of field and selective focus qualities of a true f/2 design.
