Presenting an immensely wide field of view within a truly compact package, the Laowa 4mm f/2.8 Fisheye provides a huge 210° angle of view for FUJIFILM X mirrorless cameras. As a circular fisheye, this lens is characterized by its noticeable distortion and bulb-like visual appearance. The greater-than-180° angle of view also enables making full 360° stitched panoramas with just two shots. The lens also sports a bright f/2.8 design for working in available lighting conditions and its manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 3.1" away for true close-up shooting. Additionally, the fisheye design retains almost full depth of field when stopped down to f/5.6 for consistent and even sharpness.

Ultra wide-angle 4mm f/2.8 prime is designed for FUJIFILM X-mount mirrorless cameras and provides a 6mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/2.8 maximum aperture is well-suited to working in low and difficult lighting conditions.
Exceptionally wide 210° angle of view along with a circular fisheye design produces a highly distorted image for creative applications as well as the potential to stitch images together for full 360° panoramas.
Manual focus design offers a minimum focusing distance of 3.1".
Lightweight and small design makes this lens suitable for use on drones as well as being ideal for VR imaging, action sports filming, or virtual tours.

Will this work on a Canon R5? How much of the senaor would be "wasted?"
Asked by: Bruce
The Venus Optics Laowa 4mm f/2.8 Fisheye Lens for Canon RF only provides a circular fisheye in the APS-C sized area of the sensor. This would not use any of the larger Full-Frame sensor area of the Canon EOS R5 Mirrorless Camera at all.

The Venus Optics Laowa 4mm f/2.8 Fisheye Lens for Nikon Z is for Nikon Z cameras with an APS-C size sensor, including the Nikon Z30 Mirrorless Camera. The lens does produce a circular image. This is not a zoom lens; you could crop out the black border in post but will end up with a small file.
