Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D is the third member of the Laowa "Zero-D" line-up which all feature an excellent control of optical distortion that commonly appears in ultra-wide-angle lenses. This new lens is an ultra-wide, ultra-fast prime with a 35mm equivalent focal length of around 13mm. Despite the extreme specifications, Venus Optics has successfully minimized the weight of the lens to less than 0.5 pounds (215g) and the length to just over 2 inches (53mm). This compact and lightweight lens is comprised of 15 elements in 10 groups with two aspherical elements and three extra-low dispersion elements. This optical design successfully minimizes distortion and chromatic aberrations to their lowest but at the same time, delivers a superb optical performance from corner to corner.
