In the Laowa Argus lens series, which is characterized by a very high speed of f/0.95, VenusOptics has now introduced the 25mm f/0.95 MFT APO. As the name suggests, it is designed for MFT (image circle as well as mount) and thus suitable for the new Panasonic GH6, for example - after all, the supported sensor size is not consistent with the Argus series.
The apochromatic optical design consists of 14 elements in 8 groups, including one aspherical element, one extra-low dispersion element and three ultra-high refracting elements. Focusing is again manual with a 300° focus travel. The closest focusing distance is 25cm, and focus breathing is said to be low. The aperture consists of 9 blades.
The lens weighs 570g with a length of 86mm and a diameter of 71mm. Filters with a 62mm diameter are compatible.
The Laowa Argus 25mm f/0.95 MFT APO appears to be available for immediate delivery and costs .
