Product Description

The Laowa 15mm f/4.5R Zero-D Shift - Pentax K is an ideal lens for architecture and interior applications. It is currently the World’s Widest Shift lens for full frame cameras and medium format cameras. The amount of shift is ±11mm for full frame camera and ±8mm for medium format cameras. The lens is perfect for architectural and interior photography. The sky-high buildings can be captured in a corrected perspective easily.

The broad 110° angle of view is complemented by a 360° rotation mechanism applying the movements in various directions to suit both horizontal and vertical orientation shooting. Additionally, as part of the Zero-D lens series, this 15mm f/4.5 also renders scenes with a high degree of accuracy and very low distortion.

In terms of optics, two aspherical elements and three extra-low dispersion elements are featured, which reduce both spherical and chromatic aberrations for high sharpness and clarity. An anti-reflective coating also helps to control flare and ghosting for heightened contrast and color rendering. The lens uses a manual focus design for working with subjects as close a 20cm away and has a fourteen-blade diaphragm for producing subtle 14-point sun stars.

 

Key Features of the Laowa 15mm f/4.5R Zero-D Shift - Pentax K

  • Integrated +/- 11mm of shift adjustment helps to correct perspective distortion and eliminate keystone distortion
  • Large 65mm-diameter image circle easily covers full-frame sensors without any vignetting
  • The shift control works in conjunction with 360° of rotation for applying the shift in various directions, benefitting switching between vertical and horizontal shooting orientations, and the rotation mechanism has click stops at 15° increments for intuitive handling
  • Two aspherical elements limit spherical aberrations and distortion for improved sharpness and accurate rendering
  • Three extra-low dispersion elements reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for increased clarity and color neutrality
  • Updated anti-reflective coating suppresses flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions
  • Manual focusing design and a minimum focusing distance of 20cm suits working with close-up subjects
  • Fourteen-blade diaphragm produces subtle 14-point sun stars and specular highlights when stopped-down and photographing point light sources
  • Compatible with optional Shift Lens Support for more balanced mounting and to better enable using the lens for shift-type stitched panorama shooting without parallax error

World’s Widest Shift Lens

15mm f/4.5 Shift is the widest shift lens for full-frame cameras. The angle of view is 110°, and it covers a huge ⌀ 65mm image circle. The wider perspective offers a great deal of flexibility for photographers to capture architecture and interior shots when space is limited.

±11mm Shift Amount

The maximum possible shift amount of the lens is ±11mm for full frame camera and ±8mm for medium format camera (e.g. Fujifilm GFX / Hasselblad X1D). The shift capability allows photographers to capture straight architecture with ease. 15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift straightens the lines that appear to converge in the distance. Crooked images can be corrected by changing the perspective of the lens. Perspective distortion is being eliminated to create the reality-like image.

The ±11mm shift amount also allows photographers to expand the angle of view by stitching multiple images. It gives an extraordinary image perspective and rooms for special compositions.

Large Image Circle

With a huge ⌀65mm image circle, the lens not only works with the full-frame format but also covers the medium format sensors. This makes it currently the World’s Widest lens covering Fujifilm GFX sensor with no vignetting.

Zero Distortion

15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift is composed of 17 elements in 11 groups. It suppresses the distortion to nearly Zero level from corner to corner. Perfect for architecture photography as any straight lines will be retained.

High Image Quality

15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift coupled with new lens coating. A significant improvement on the chromatic aberration, flaring and ghosting.

Extremely Close Focusing Distance

15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift is an ultra wide shift lens coupled with 20cm closest focusing distance. Macro-like photos can be created easily. The Functionality of the lens is diverse . Wide angle macro image can be easily captured with this lens.

Stunning 10-point Sunstar

The 5-bladed aperture creates stunning 10-point sunstar rendering.

360° Rotation

Shift lens support is specially designed for 15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift. Perfect for panorama stitching as the optic axis remains unchanged.
