Venus Optics 9mm f/2.8 Overview

A fast and bright wide-angle prime, the DL mount Laowa 9mm f/2.8 FE Zero-D Lens from Venus Optics is a lightweight, compact lens with a sophisticated optical design to effectively limit distortion. Its DL mount is designed to fit the X7 gimbal on a DJI Inspire 2 drone, and it covers APS-C / Super 35 sensors.

The bright f/2.8 maximum aperture makes this lens especially useful for low-light use, and when paired with the 4.7" minimum focusing distance, shallow depth of field imagery can also be produced. The optical construction includes three extra-low dispersion elements and two aspherical elements to control both chromatic and spherical aberrations for greater sharpness, clarity, and reduced color fringing.

The lens features a 49mm front filter thread, a 113° angle of view, and weighs only 7.6 oz. A petal-shaped lens hood is provided to reduce flare and ghosting.

Designed for the X7 gimbal on the DJI Inspire 2 drone.
Ultra wide-angle DL mount prime designed for APS-C Super 35 sensors, this 9mm f/2.8 provides a 13.5mm equivalent focal length.
Relatively fast f/2.8 maximum aperture low-light shooting applications.
Renders subjects with minimal distortion 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.
Manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 4.7" away with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:7.5.
This lens can accept 49mm screw-in filters on the front of the lens.

Will this lens still be balanced if you add a filter to the front?
Asked by: Daniel
Small filters weigh very little. It will work fine, without upsetting the balance. Adding the filter may use a miniscule amount of battery power.
