Venus Optics is rumored to announce a new wide-angle Laowa f/4 tilt-shift lens (or maybe only shift?) on March 28th. Venus Optics lenses are sold at Adorama and B&H.
Photo Rumors has posted a teaser image of the Venus Optics (LAOWA) shift lens. According to the image below, Venus Optics is rumored to announce the new F4 wide-angle tilt-shift lens on March 28th.
Since the title of the teaser is “Shift?”, it seems likely that the tilt mechanism is not installed. With the introduction of LAOWA brand relatively affordable shift lenses, you can feel free to try them out, unlike the expensive shift lenses made by camera makers.
Venus Optics already has the Laowa 15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift lens.
