In this era of very less attention span, images need to quickly stand out from the crowd. This lens is aimed to produce a different bokeh and perspective so that the images are not tossed aside.

It is the perfect focal length for both amateur and professional photographers.

The Laowa Argus lens is full metal construction and is designed to deliver outstanding optical performance. This lens will come in handy in difficult lighting and in low lighting conditions where the f0.95 aperture will allow for shooting in low ISOs.

Laowa Argus 45mm f/0.95 FF employed 1 Aspherical Lens,1 ED glass and 3 UHR glass to achieve high optical performance. The lens delivers incredible sharpness and high-contrast images even when wide open while obtaining accurate colour and minimal distortion.

This lens accepts 72mm threaded filters. The aperture ring and focus ring have deep grooves for better handling. Together with 300°focus throw for precise set focus. It is a professional lens for every photographer to create their own masterpieces.

Switch for videographers to de-click the aperture ring. This could prevent the click sound to be recorded and a noticeable change in brightness when changing the aperture setting.
