Characterized by its especially compact and lightweight form factor, the LAOWA 10-18mm f4.5-5.6 C-Dreamer Nikon Z is a petite and flexible ultra-wide-angle zoom for Nikon Z-mount mirrorless cameras. Its sleek size and versatile range of wide-angle focal lengths make it ideal for landscape, nature, and architectural shooting as well as astrophotography applications.

Its optical design incorporates both extra-low dispersion and aspherical elements in order to correct a variety of aberrations and distortions for sharper, clearer image quality and accurate color rendering. A Frog Eye Coating has also been applied to repel dust and moisture from the front element of the lens to benefit working in trying environmental conditions. Additionally, the manual aperture ring can be de-clicked for smooth, silent aperture changes to suit video applications, and the rear of the lens is threaded to accept 37mm screw-in filters.

Key Features of the LAOWA 10-18mm f4.5-5.6 C-Dreamer Nikon Z

  • Ultra-wide-angle zoom is designed for FX-format Nikon Z-mount mirrorless cameras.
