Venus Optics adds RF mounts to some of their current Laowa lenses

Anhui China, December 13, 2022 – Venus Optics, a pioneer in producing unique photo and cine lenses, announced today the addition of new mounts for the Magic Shift Converter (MSC), transforming the normal lenses into a professional shift lens with ±10mm shift capability. On top of the existing Canon EF, Nikon F and Nikon G to Sony E options, the brand is adding Canon EF to Canon RF, Canon EF to Nikon Z and Nikon F/G to Nikon Z to the portfolio. With the MSC, the Canon and Nikon DSLR lenses can be mounted on mirrorless cameras while retaining optical performance. It is optimized with the Laowa 12mm F2.8 Zero-D ultra-wide angle lens but you can use any full manual EF and F mount lenses, supporting photographers to capture straight architecture, interior and real estate photos.

Additional mounts for other Laowa lenses are also announced – new Canon RF mount for 4mm f/2.8 Fisheye, 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D, and 65mm f/2.8 Ultra Macro APO and new L mount for 12-24mm f/5.6 Zoom.
