Laowa Adds Z, RF, EOS-M, and L Mount Options on Seven of Their Existing Lenses

Venus Optics, the company behind Laowa, released new mount options on seven of their existing lenses, including the 24mm f/14 probe lens and the Argus 33mm f/0.95.

Most of the new additions are Nikon Z mount, but also two L-Mount additions, and one Canon RF, and one Canon EOS-M lens.

Laowa is known for their super-wide-angle and macro lenses. One of their most famous lenses, the 24mm f/14 2X Macro Probe is a very unique lens that was already available in EF, F, FE, L, K, and PL mount. Now Venus Optics added Nikon Z and Canon RF mount variants to their lineup. I’d say this is quite a lot to choose from!

Venus Optics also shows a new lens variant of their Argus 33mm f/0.95 lens with the Canon EOS-M mount. They recently received an award for this lens and the 15mm Zero-D. That’s quite an interesting choice as Canon seems to leave the EOS-M mount behind and fully focus on their RF lineup. Of course, this doesn’t exclude the possibility of many EOS-M users wanting more and new lenses.

All lenses are planned to start shipping from August onwards, so waiting shouldn’t be necessary.
