It appears Laowa’s been conserving very quiet about an entire bunch of latest lenses. 9 of them, to be exact, together with an up to date model of their distinctive and standard 24mm f/14 probe macro lens. However now the curtain has been pulled again a bit after Venus Optics had them on show at a current pictures present in Shanghai, China.
In addition to the 24mm T14 2x Macro Periscopelens, there’s a 10mm f/4 pancake for APS-C and MFT, 20mm f/4 C-Dreamer shift lens, an 85mm f/5.6 2:1 macro, a 12-24mm f/5.6 C-Dreamer, 6mm T2.1 and 14069mm T2.9 cine lenses for MFT, 27mm T2.8 1.5x anamorphic cine lens for Tremendous 35 and a 7.5mm T2.9 cine lens for each MFT and surprisingly, Tremendous 35.
The information comes by way of Photo Rumors, who appear to have classed the Venus Optics Laowa FF 24mm T14 2x macro periscope lens as a pictures lens and never a cinema lens, which is odd. Certain, you may use it for pictures, however pictures lenses have aperture values marked as an f/quantity. T stops are a measurement of sunshine transmission, used with video and cinema lenses. It additionally seems to function the gear tooth for observe focus, and many others that we’d usually count on with cinema lenses, too – gear tooth that are absent on the unique Laowa 24mm f/14 macro probe lens.
Except for the gears that make it higher suited to video capturing rigs than the present 24mm f/14 probe lens, the brand new 24mm T14 probe lens seems to have a periscope lens, which modifications the angle of assault reflecting the body 90 levels to have the ability to shoot sideways. This could make for some very attention-grabbing monitoring pictures throughout minute surfaces.
Listed here are the remainder of the lenses. First up, the pictures lenses (minus the probe lens already talked about above).
- Venus Optics Laowa CF 10mm f/4 Cookie lens (for MFT and APS-C cameras)
- Venus Optics Laowa FF S 20mm f/4 C-dreamer shift lens
- Venus Optics Laowa Mini FFii 85mm f/5.6 macro 2:1 full-frame lens
- Venus Optics Laowa FFii 12-24mm f/5.6 C-dreamer ultra-wide zoom lens
Not one of the cinema glass seems to be full-frame, but it surely seems like there are some nice choices for MFT shooters, in addition to these APS-C/Tremendous 35 shooters trying to get their anamorphic repair.
- Venus Optics Laowa 6mm T2.1 cine MFT lens
- Venus Optics Laowa 7.5mm T2.9 cine lens for MFT and APS-C.
- Venus Optics Laowa S35 anamorphic 27mm T2.8 1.5X cine lens
- Venus Optics Laowa MFT 14-60mm T2.9 Cine lens
There’s no phrase but on precisely when these lenses shall be formally introduced with full specs, but it surely seems like we’ve acquired so much on the way in which from Venus Optics to play with. I’d be very to see what folks do with the brand new periscope macro lens and what it’s going to allow them to obtain that they haven’t been in a position to prior to now with the probe lens!
