Venus Optics has released the Laowa 19mm f/2.8 Zero-D GFX lens and announced a series of new mounts.


Capable of capturing a 110-degree angle of view, the Laowa 19mm weighs approximately 19 ounces, measures 3" long, and features a 77mm filter thread and a minimum focusing distance of 7".


Venus Optics’ Magic Shift Converter, which transforms a normal lens into a professional shift lens with ±10mm shift capability, is now available with the following mounts: Canon EF to Canon RF, Canon EF to Nikon Z, and Nikon F/G to Nikon Z. These new options join the previously released Canon EF, Nikon F and Nikon G-to-Sony E mounts. With the converter, Canon and Nikon DSLR lenses can be mounted on mirrorless cameras while retaining optical performance. It is optimized with the Laowa 12mm F2.8 Zero-D lens but can be used with any manual EF- and F-mount lenses.


Venus Optics has also announced the following mounts for Laowa lenses: Canon RF mount for 4mm f/2.8 Fisheye, 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D and 65mm f/2.8 Ultra Macro APO, and L mount for 12-24mm f/5.6 Zoom.
