Venus Optics 9mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

Pairing an ultra wide-angle field of view with an especially compact design, this Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D from Venus Optics is a Sony E-mount lens offering a 13.5mm equivalent focal length. As a Zero-D lens, this 9mm f/2.8's optical design is specifically meant to limit distortion for clear and accurate portrayals of landscapes and architectural subjects. The optical construction also incorporates a pair of aspherical elements and three extra-low dispersion elements to control both spherical and chromatic aberrations for improved sharpness and reduced color fringing. A Frog Eye Coating has been applied, too, to repel dust and moisture from the front element of the lens to benefit working in trying environmental conditions. Its sleek and lightweight design is well-matched to mirrorless bodies and is ideal for everyday shooting as well as use on gimbals. Additionally, a petal-shaped lens hood is also incorporated into the lens' design to reduce flare and ghosting when working in strong lighting conditions.

Ultra wide-angle 9mm f/2.8 prime is designed for APS-C-format Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras and provides a 13.5mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/2.8 maximum aperture is well-suited to working in low and difficult lighting conditions.
Rectilinear design renders subjects with minimal distortion in order to suit landscape and architectural applications.
Three extra-low dispersion elements reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for increased clarity and color neutrality. Two aspherical elements are also featured to limit spherical aberrations for improved sharpness.
A Frog Eye Coating has been applied to repel both dust and moisture for added protection when working in inclement conditions.
Manual focus design offers a minimum focusing distance of 4.7".
Built-in petal-shaped lens hood shields the lens from stray light to reduce flare and ghosting and also protects the front elements from accidental impacts.

    Venus Optics 9mm f/2.8 reviews

    Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D Lens for Sony E is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding. Shooting with the same lens for a couple of days is remarkable. This 9mm has been the only lens I've shot with for going on 2 weeks so far. The difference in FOV vs the Rokinon 12mm is huge. I love this lens.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not very sturdy build After seeing numerous awesome reviews about Laowa 9mm for the Sony E mount, I am highly anticipated and cannot wait to order one. But at the same time I am also a bit worry about the build quality. (I never have a very strong confident of "Made in China", or Chinese company in general, even though I am a Chinese.) Anyway, I got this lens yesterday. Visually, it is smaller and more compact compare to the Rokinon 12mm F2. The weigh is kinda the same. However, the biggest different is the build quality. On the Rokinon 12mm F2, both the aperture and focus ring is tight and feels solid when adjusting. On the other hand, the Laowa 9mm F2.8, the focus ring feel tight and solid. However, the aperture ring is very disappointing. It is loose, very flimsy especially when I change the aperture to 2.8, the ring will actually dials back a bit itself, it will not lock on the 2.8 mark. I don't know how significant it will affect the quality of the image but that definitely worry me a little bit. I am going to a long trip next week and do some milky way shot and some landscape photography. Will come back and edit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome addition to the collection The zero distortion on this lens is what really makes it! You can get some really interesting angles while keeping a cinematic look. Great colors too. Highly recommended.
