The Laowa 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 lens has an ultra-wide zoom range, manual focus ring, de-clickable aperture combined with a 37mm rear filter thread and a minimal focus distance of 15cm. All this and more is somehow packed into a lens less than 10cm long thats weighs less than 500g. It also has an anti-dust and moisture coating to protect again the elements and is perfect for shooting architecture, landscapes, nature photography and video.

Ultra-wide Zoom Range of 10-18mm

With an impressively versatile focal range, the 10-18mm lens is designed for full frame sensors and is the widest lens currently available for the Sony and Nikon mirrorless cameras. The ultra-wide field of view makes the lens well suited for landscape and architecture photographers and the zoom functionality further enhances its versatility.

14 Elements in 10 Groups

Wide-angle lenses can be tricky to design and making them with a zoom function can be even more difficult but Laowa have managed to create a optical construction that successfully minimises distortions as well as chromatic aberrations. The optics use 14 glass elements, 2 aspherical and 1 extra-low dispersion element that have been carefully arranged in 10 groups to deliver edge to edge sharpness and excellent optical performance.

5 Straight Aperture Blades

The lens uses 5 aperture blades to create stunning 10-stroke starbursts from point light sources, even when shooting at the widest aperture of f/4.5. Urban cityscape shooters and night photographers will love how easy it is to add dramatic starbursts to their shots.

Manual Focus Control and De-Clickable Aperture Ring

Designed with a smooth all-manual focus ring, the lens has distance measurements clearly marked on the barrel that allow for precise focal adjustments. The lens also features a manual aperture ring that can be de-clicked for the smoother exposure and depth-of-field adjustments required by videographers.

Light Ultra-Sleek Design

Boasting a super modern design, the 10-18mm full frame lens is less than 91mm long and 70mm wide which, combined with the lens’s super lightweight construction makes it ideal for photographers on-the-go and travellers who want a wide-angle option that won’t impact their carry-on allowance.

Designed for Full Frame and APS-C Compatible

Although created with full frame mirrorless shooters in mind the lens is also compatible with APS-C size image sensors, providing a 15-27mm equivalent focal range.

Holds an Internal 37mm Filter

Laowa have designed the 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 C-Dreamer Ultra Wide Zoom lens with a 37mm threaded rear filter mount so it can accept a range of filters like neutral density, circular polarisers and more. This adds to the versatility of the lens and provides even more control over your shots.
