Laowa 4mm f/2.8 Fisheye MFT Overview

Laowa 4mm f/2.8 Fisheye lens is an 8mm equivalent fisheye prime specially designed for Micro Four Thirds cameras. Contrary to the Laowa "Zero-D" wide angle lenses, the new 4mm fisheye lens is designed to create an extremely distorted fisheye perspective.

210° angle of view
The lens features an ultra-wide 210° angle of view. Photographers can take advantage of the dramatic field of view to capture. A full 360° panorama can also be done using a few as 2 images as opposed to shooting 6 or more images with conventional fisheye lenses. This lens is also particularly good for VR photography, shooting virtual tour and spherical panorama.

Photographers can take advantage of the super close focusing distance to capture some heavily distorted & impactful shots.

Drone friendly
The lens can be mounted on DJI Inspire X5 drones to create some epic "God's eye view" shots.

Outstanding sharpness
Using 7 elements in 6 groups, the new 4mm has outstanding sharpness throughout the frame. Along with the 210° ultra-wide angle, photographers can either "de-fish" the image in post-processing or crop to transform the image into a rectilinear image.

Super Tiny & Lightweight
The lens is extremely tiny and lightweight. Measuring only 1.77” (45mm) long and weighing 4.7 oz (135g), the lens is so small that can be put into pocket for shooting anywhere, anytime.

Huge Depth of Field
The depth of field of this lens is so deep that no focusing operation is required. Simply park the focus ring at infinity focus and stop down the lens to around f/5.6, everything will be in focus.
