The manual LAOWA 9mm f/5.6 FF RL – Nikon Z Lens is the world's widest* rectilinear lens for full-frame cameras and features very low distortion. The remarkable 135° angle of view allows you to capture landscape images with ease and realise formerly impossible shots.
Featuring a remarkable 135-degree angle of view this ultra-wide angle of view is particularly helpful for interior photography as it helps exaggerated the sense of space. The lens is constructed of 14 elements in 10 groups, including 2 aspherical elements and 2 extra-low dispersion elements to suppress chromatic aberrations and distortion to the minimum.
In addition to the ultra-wide field of view, the lens features an incredibly short minimum focusing distance — just 12cm perfect for creating mini macro shots with ultra-wide perspective and it also uses a five-blade aperture diaphragm. The lens measures 60mm in both length and diameter and weigh just 350g.

Extremely close focusing distance
In addition to the ultra-wide perspective, the new Laowa 9mm lens can focus extremely close, almost like a macro lens. The closest focusing distance is only 4.72” (12cm) measuring from subject to the sensor. This is so much closer than the other ultra-wide angle lenses in the market and it provides greater flexibility for photographers to compose shots at any distance, create wide-angle shots at close distances and control depth of field much more easily.
Perfect 10-point Sunstars
The 5-blade aperture system produces a pleasing sunstar rendering. Simply stop down the aperture by 1 stop and can create the perfect 10-point sunstars.
An exaggerated sense of space
With a remarkable 135° angle of view, the lens creates a sense of space by exaggerating the relative size of foreground objects. This lens is extremely useful for interior photography.
Improve stability and speed when focusing with the integrated 'rangefinder-style' focus tab. This tab also hides an adjustment screw used to adjust the focus ring marking positions.
