Go ultra-wide with the Laowa 17mm f/4 GFX Zero-D lens from Laowa. One of the widest lenses for the GFX Medium Format system. This impressive ultra-wide sports Close-to-Zero distortion (Zero-D) and produces a exceptionally 113° angle of view, making it well-suited to a range of photography from landscape, architecture, interiors and astrophotography.
The optical design incorporates a series of extra-low dispersion and aspherical elements, which correct a variety of aberrations in order to produce high sharpness, clarity, and colour accuracy.
Additionally Frog Eye coating has been applied to the front element to protect the lens from dust and moisture. Its manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 20cm away and a five-blade diaphragm contributes to producing 10-point sun stars.
Two aspherical elements and three extra-low dispersion elements are featured to minimize spherical and chromatic aberrations for sharper, clearer, and more colour-accurate imagery.
One of the widest native lens for Fujifilm GFX cameras with a 113° angle of view, the lens is ideal for various types of photography including landscape, interior, architecture and astrophotography.
Due to the 0.79x “crop” factor of the medium format-sized sensor of GFX cameras, the angle of view is equivalent to a 13mm lens on a 35mm format sensor. It is extremely helpful when shooting interiors or in tight spaces. More information and details can now be included in the frame, compared to any other wide angle lens on the market.
Comprised of 21 elements in 14 groups, the new 17mm f/4 lens is the 4th member of the Laowa “Zero-D” product line-up, which exhibits close-to-zero optical distortion. This particular feature is extremely useful for architecture and interior photographers as all the straight lines can now be retained.
The Laowa 17mm f/4 can achieve amazing high resolution results at both the centre and edge of the frame. Details at the edges are well preserved even on the 102MP sensor of GFX 100 cameras.
Despite the ultra-wide angle of view, LAOWA has managed to incorporate an 86mm front filter thread. Photographers can quickly attach screw-on filters for maximum control and creativity under different lighting conditions.
Similar to other Laowa wide angle lenses, the new 17mm f/4 has impressive close-focusing capabilities! It can focus only 7.9”/ 20cm from the sensor. This allows photographers to get extremely close to the subject while still being able to include the background information in the scene.
The 5-blade aperture system produces a pleasing sunstar rendering. By stopping down the aperture, a photographer can easily create perfect 10-point sunstars.
