An optically advanced normal-length prime, the Laowa Argus 45mm f/0.95 FF Lens from Venus Optics lets you create crystal-clear images in both brightly-lit scenes and difficult lighting situations. Offered here with a Nikon Z-mount, this lens features an extremely bright f/0.95 maximum aperture for low-light environments and rendering dreamy bokeh with full-frame cameras. A perfect focal length for amateurs and professionals alike, the lens provides a 51° angle of view that is well-suited for portraits, street scenes, cityscapes, and reportage. The lens is video friendly as well and features a click switch mechanism so videographers can de-click the aperture ring to prevent the click sound when recording. This also allows for a smooth change in brightness when adjusting the aperture settings.
