Venus Laowa 17mm Micro Four Thirds (6)

Venus Optics have announced that their 17mm f/1.8 lens which was premiered at Photokina 2018 will be released at the end of October 2019 for $149.

The 17mm f/2.8 is the fourth wide-angle lens that Venus Optics have designed for MFT mirrorless cameras. They say that this is the most affordable lens that they have ever released. 

The 17mm gives the equivalent to a 34mm angle of view on a full-frame sensor. The lens houses nine elements in seven groups, and has a seven-blade diaphragm to give a pleasing sunstar rendering. The lens is compact and weighs just 6oz (172g). It has a minimum focus distance of 15cm and comes with a 46mm filter thread.
