Venus Optics introduces 6mm F2 Zero D for Micro Four Thirds

Venus Laowa 6mm F2 MFT

Venus Optics has announced the release of the Laowa 6mm F2 Zero-D for Micro Four Thirds. Given the 2:1 cropping factor of MFT, this translates into 12mm equivalent on full frame with a viewing angle of almost 122°.

The lens consists of thirteen elements in nine groups and features two aspherical elements. It has a class-leading minimum focus distance of only 9cm with a 58mm filter thread on the front. The clicked aperture has five blades which will create ten-point sunstars when stopped down.

As with Venus Optics‘ other „zero-distortion“ lenses, this lens’s design prioritizes minimal distortion, making it a good choice for architectural and real estate photography. The lens is focused manually but features electric contacts for controlling the aperture from the camera. Also supported is transmission of Exif data to the camera.

The lens is derived from Venus‘ 6mm T2.1 Cine lens; it has the same optical formula but a different barrel, measuring about 60mm in diameter and 52mm in length. It only weighs about 190g, making it an interesting choice for drone photography.

The Laowa 6mm F2 Zero-D is available for pre-order in Venus Optics‘ online store for $499. Also available via Amazon.
