20mm Ultra-Wide-Angle Lens

With a 94.4° angle of view and up to 117° for panorama photography, it captures the whole scene while reducing the large regions of emptiness. It is ideal for architectural and interior photography to balance the subject and the background.

±11mm Shift Amount

The maximum possible shift amount of the lens is ±11mm for full-frame camera and ±8mm for medium format camera (e.g. Fujifilm GFX / Hasselblad X1D). Sufficient shift capability allows photographers to correct converging vertical lines created by distance. By changing the perspective of the lens, straight architecture can be easily captured.

Outstanding Optical Performance

This lens has 16 elements in 11 groups with 2 aspherical elements and 3 ED elements, bringing impressive control on chromatic aberration and ensuring the image sharpness is consistent from the center to the edge.

 “Zero” Distortion

Laowa 20mm f/4 Zero-D Shift is one of the “Zero-D” members, the distortion is nearly zero meaning any straight lines can be maintained from corner to corner. It is a must-have advantage for architectural, commercial, interior, and landscape photographers because the post-editing time is much shortened for the image to look real.

 14-blade Aperture

The 14-blade aperture creates smooth and circular bokeh, the effect is pleasantly astonishing in architecture photography.

 Close Focusing Distance

Apart from far-away architecture, Laowa 20mm f/4 Zero-D Shift also supports capturing very close objects with a 25cm minimum focusing distance. Wide-angle macro images can be created easily without changing lenses.

Rotatable Lens hood

The 360° rotatable lens hood shades the front of the lens, keeping the images away from unwanted flares and a washed out. It is extremely convenient to use when there is a strong light source from the side. Photographers can also adjust the angle of the lens hood to avoid blocking the image when extreme shifts.

82mm Filter Thread

Laowa 20mm f/4 Zero-D Shift is designed with 82mm filter thread. The screw-in filter can be used which is cheaper, lighter, and more compact compared to obtaining a separate filter holder.

Special Designed Lens Support

The new lens support is compatible for both 20mm f/4 Zero-D Shift and 15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift. The rotatable ring outside is specifically helpful to retain the axis of the image when changing orientations and shifting. It is especially important to achieve perfect stitching for panorama photography, the shift lens support makes it much easier.
