Lens Features:  It is capable of achieving 1: 1 magnification and focusing on objects at infinity. 

The LAOWA LW-FX 15mm F4.0 1:1 Wide Angle Macro Lens is an interchangeable lens designed for Full Frame DSLR. Being able to focus at infinity and achieve 1:1 magnification, the lens produces maximal vision impact ever, capturing the details of foreground objects together with the expansive background.


Optical Properties: Each lens element adopts low reflective multilayer coating.

Low reflective multi-layer coating are adopted to minimize ghosting and flare. In order to ensure image quality from infinity to close distance, main focusing set and subsidiary focusing set are adopted to correct the phenomenon of resolution decrease. So compared with like products, this Laowa 15mm f/4.0 Wide Angle Macro Lens is measured to high standard.


Structure Design: It is completely made of metal and has a bonus feature of Tilt-shift mechanism. 

This lens is solid built with metal to ensure its assembly precision and durability. And it can shift up and down for 6mm distance on APS-C cameras to correct perspective distortion when shooting architecture. (It may appear slight vignetting when you use on Full Frame cameras).

3) Shooting Skills

A. Normal Shooting Mode

When using lens on APS-C cameras, it can achieve angle of view as the (22.5-24mm) wide angle lens does. The shift mechanism is a bonus feature for landscape and architecture photography to correct perspective distortion.

B. Macro Shooting Mode

The focusing method can be divided into composition priority and magnification priority mode.

Composition Priority Mode: To manually focus before observing the viewfinder and composing.

Magnification Priority Mode: To manually focus before setting the max. magnification.
