New DL Mount for the Laowa 11mm f/4.5 FF RL & 14mm f/4 FF RL Zero-D and XCD mount for 3 medium format lenses

Anhui China, May 5, 2024 – Venus Optics, a pioneer in producing unique photo and cine lenses, announced today the addition of the DL mount for their ultra-wide 11mm f/4.5 FF RL and 14mm f/4 FF RL Zero-D full frame lens. Both lenses are super compact and lightweight, but still being able to deliver sharp image quality and well-controlled distortion performance, making them the ideal options for extraordinary wide drone shots. 

The 11mm f/4.5 weighs only 206g with a Ø62mm filter thread and the 14mm weighs 186g with a Ø52mm filter thread. The lenses reduce the payload of the setup and thus improve the overall stability with advanced user experience. They are the ultimate professional full-frame prime lenses for FPV and drone pilots. 

Additional XCD mounts for other Laowa lenses are also announced for 15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift, 20mm f/4 Zero-D Shift and 19mm f/2.8 Zero-D

Both 11mm and 14mm lenses deliver an incredibly wide perspective, dynamic landscapes and enormous skyscrapers can be seen and captured with ease. Featuring a 126° angle of view, this new 11mm f/4.5 is the world’s widest rectilinear full-frame lens for DL users. The lens opens up a new dimension for creative landscape and cityscape drone shots.

Extremely Compact & Lightweight

The 11mm f/4.5 weighs 206g and the 14mm f/4 weighs 186g only. The lenses are tiny for mounting on drones, keeping a low-level flight shake when flying in the air and delivering stabilized footage at ease.

Built-in Filter Thread

Both lenses have a filter thread to provide user benefits to drone pilots. They can screw in the ND filters conveniently in different light conditions without extra filter holders, which also reduces the payloads of the drone.

Superb Image Quality

Despite the compact size of the lenses, the 11mm f/4.5 and 14mm f/4 produce excellent sharpness and contrast, ensuring high-quality aerial imagery for demanding shooting. Designed with optical excellence, purple fringing and chromatic aberration are well suppressed.
