Venus Optics has announced that the Laowa 15mm F4.5 Zero-D Shift lens is now available for Pentax K mount cameras. The Venus Optics Laowa 15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift lens was announced last year and was initially only available for Canon EF, Nikon F, Canon RF, Nikon Z, and Sony FE mounts.
Venus Optics Laowa 15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift Lens features a close-to-zero distortion with a 110° angle of view. The ultra-fast aperture f/2 enables photographers to capture impressive astro shots very easily. The 72mm filter thread allows a quick installation of filters for landscape shooting. This lens is going to be an everyday lens for most of us given its compact size (62mm long) and weight (～500g only).
The new Leica L mount and Pentax K mount models are available for $1,199 price tag.
