The Laowa 11mm f/4.5 FF RL is now available in Canon RF mount. Previously it was only available in Leica M, Sony FE, Nikon Z, and L mount.

The Laowa 11mm F4.5 FF RL is a rectilinear wide-angle lens that was designed for use with full-frame mirrorless cameras. It has a 126° angle of view and a 19cm minimum focus distance.

The lens is 6.3cm (2.5 inches) long and it weighs 254g (8.9oz). The optical construction of the lens includes 2 aspherical elements and 3 extra-low dispersion elements that Laowa claims increases the sharpness, and suppresses chromatic aberrations and distortion. A 5-bladed aperture is able to create a clean and appealing 10-point sunstars.
