Venus Optics Laowa Argus 45mm f/0.95 Overview

By B&H Photo's

An optically advanced normal-length prime, the Laowa Argus 45mm f/0.95 FF Lens from Venus Optics lets you create crystal-clear images in both brightly-lit scenes and difficult lighting situations. Offered here with a Canon RF-mount, this lens features an extremely bright f/0.95 maximum aperture for low-light environments and rendering dreamy bokeh with full-frame cameras. A perfect focal length for amateurs and professionals alike, the lens provides a 51° angle of view that is well-suited for portraits, street scenes, cityscapes, and reportage. The lens is video friendly as well and features a click switch mechanism so videographers can de-click the aperture ring to prevent the click sound when recording. This also allows for a smooth change in brightness when adjusting the aperture settings.

Impressively bright f/0.95 maximum aperture is well-suited for working in low-light conditions and provides greater control over the focus position when using shallow depth of field techniques.
Normal-length prime lens provides a 51° angle of view for a natural-looking perspective close to the human eye.
The optical design incorporates an aspherical element, an extra-low dispersion element, and three ultra-high refraction elements, which help to suppress spherical and chromatic aberrations for improved sharpness, color accuracy, and clarity.
Video-friendly design features a click switch mechanism to de-click the aperture ring. This prevents the click sound from being recorded and provides a smooth change in brightness when changing the aperture setting.
Robust metal construction with deep grooves on the aperture ring and focus ring to enable better handling.
Internal focusing minimizes focus breathing when changing the focus from one object to another. This design also helps prevent dust from getting into the lens.
