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 photographer’s kit bag.

    Laowa 17mm f/1.8 MFT is perfect for street, travel and everyday photography. Weighted 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 photographer’s kit bag. The wide angle of view (65°) paired 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 colour rendering results in high saturation, leaving the photograph impressively pleasing straight out of the camera.

    f/1.8 Fast aperture
    An ultra-fast f/1.8 maximum aperture not only creates smooth bokeh with its rounded 7- blade diaphragm, but also offers great low-light performance. Despite the fast aperture, sharp, high-contrast images of distant subjects can be captured at any aperture. It is an Ideal lens for portraits, landscapes, travel and all-purpose imaging.

    Close Focusing Distance
    This lens has a 5.9” (15cm) minimum focusing distance that greatly benefits working with close-up subjects in detail. Photographers 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.

    Excellent Performance in Videography
    Attributed to the compact and light body, the 17mm f/1.8 lens is a portable and on-the-go option for videographers, both handheld and on gimbals. The high-performance optical design incorporates one Super ED (extra-low dispersion) glass element that delivers high-definition images with minimum ghosting and flare, broadening your shooting potential in challenging situations.

    Drone Friendly
    On top of traditional M43 cameras, this lens is also drone-friendly. It is compatible with the DJI X5 camera, making it an alternative lens for aerial photography and videography.
