Laowa Argus f/0.95 Coming Soon?


Venus Optics Laowa has a new 0.95 line of lenses coming after the leaked Laowa 15mm f/4.5W-Dreamer Tilt-Shift. Details are limited at this time, but this line will come to DSLR and Mirrorless Full Frame / APS-C. Venus Optics hasn’t decided on the mounts to target yet or even a final design, but it is in progress and the details were leaked from a small meeting, which was able to be confirmed.

It is believed that the first lens we see in this line will fall between 20-35mm, which isn’t surprising since Laowa has made some excellent affordable wide glass recently. This 0.95 line could be like when SLR Magic made a very high-quality 50mm f/0.95 Noktor for M-Mount that was around $4k that came close to beating the legendary expensive Leica Noctilux 0.95. With what we have seen from Laowa lately I would not be surprised to see this level of quality at an even more reasonable price than what SLR Magic could reach.
