Laowa releases the 11mm f/4.5 for Canon RF

Venus Optics has added Canon RF to the list of camera mounts supported by the Laowa 11mm F4.5 compact prime.

According to Venus Optics;

Laowa 11mm F4.5 FF RL is a super compact and lightweight Rectilinear(RL) wide-angle lens for full-frame (FF) mirrorless cameras. The remarkable 126° angle of view with 19cm minimum focus length features can be found in the 6.3cm(2.5 inches) long and 254g(8.9oz) lens. It allows you to capture the stunning landscape,  precious travel moments and beautiful interior design without any burden. The lens also includes 2 aspherical elements and 3 extra-low dispersion elements to guarantee the sharpness,  suppress chromatic aberrations and distortion to the minimum. Conveniently, the 62mm filter can be screwed onto the lens directly, or more filters available with a 100mm square filter frame. The 5 blades aperture creates a stunning 10-point sunstars. For Leica M mount photographer, rangefinder coupling is available for the lens to have a more accurate and easy focus.

Core Specifications include;

Focal Length 11mm
Max. Aperture f/4.5
Min. Aperture f/22
Angle of View 126°
Format Compatibility Full Frame
Lens Structure 14 elements in 10 groups
Aperture Blades 5
Min. Focusing Distance 7.4” (19cm)
Max. Magnification 0.1
Filter Solutions 62mm filter
Dimensions 63.5mm x 58mm
Weight 254g(8.9 oz.)

The MTF looks very good for a lens this wide.

Especially when you consider this lens against the Canon 11-24mm F4L

Yes the Canon EF 11-24mm is for a non mirrorless mount, and it's a zoom, but it's also a $3000 lens, versus an $800 lens. You can purchase this directly at the VenusOptics online store.  Did I mention it also supports normal 62mm filters? Crazy.

Is this a lens for you? I know for me.. I can't wait to get my paws on this lens with a Canon R5s whenever Canon releases it for me ;)  Laowa for me seems to be hitting out of the park.  This and their 15mm Shift are on my must-buy list.
