Laowa 17mm f/1.8 MFT is perfect for street, travel and everyday photography. Weighted 6oz (172g) only, this remarkably light, compact and agile lens serves as an exceptional complement to MFT cameras. It is a great tool that should be in every photographers’ kit bag. The wide angle of view(65°) pair with the large f/1.8 aperture can easily handle different lighting conditions. The lens houses nine elements in seven groups, and has a seven-blade diaphragm to give a traditional sunstar rendering in out-of-focus highlights.

The 17mm gives the equivalent to a 34mm angle of view on a full-frame sensor. Optimized for M43 system, the resulting images deliver stunning details and contrast across the entire frame, even at a wide-open aperture. The vibrant color rendering results in high saturation, leaving the photograph impressively pleasing straight out from the camera.

Despite the fast aperture, sharp, high-contrast images of distant subjects can be captured at any apertures. It is an Ideal lens for portraits, landscapes, travel and all-purpose imaging.

This lens has a 5.9”(15cm) minimum focusing distance that greatly benefits working with close-up subjects in detail. Photographer can make use of the “Mini-macro” feature to capture macro shots with shallow depth of field, creating smooth out-of-focus blurring and good subject separation from the background.
