An ultra-wide field of view along with a sleek design, the Sony E-mount Laowa 11mm f4.5 FF RL from Venus Optics is a unique wide-angle prime with rectilinear rendering that is ideal for interior, architecture, nature, and landscape applications. The huge 126° angle of view is aided by an advanced optical design, which includes aspherical high refractive index, and low dispersion elements, to realize well-corrected, sharp, and color-accurate imagery. The lens has a manual focus design and permits working with subjects as close as 7.5″ away and its built-in petal-shaped hood helps to block stray light from causing unwanted lens flare.
