Laowa 17mm f/4 Zero-D

FujiRumors already shared the leaked Laowa 17mm f/4 Zero-D specs and price back in May here.

Today’s leak from China does not add anything new to the known specs, confirms the already leaked price of $1,249, but I share it because it adds a few sample images.

Hence, for the technical data, MTF charts and lens design, check out this article of May. For the sample images, just go to the bottom of this article.

BAD NEWS: Laowa 17mm f/4 for GFX to Come “Hopefully” by the End of 2019

Just yesterday, FujiRumors shared with you the leak about the Laowa 17mm f/4 for Fujifilm GFX.

The leak included updated specs as well as the price of the lens.

This lead many of us to think that an announcement is imminent, especially since the precise price tag is one of the last things companies decide, before releasing a product.

However, I have been contacted by a FR-reader, who was in touch with Laowa a few days ago, and they told him:

The 17mm f/4 Fuji GFX will ba launched hopefully at the end of 2019

When I visited Venus Optics at Photokina in September 2018, they told me the Laowa 17mm f/4 for GFX will come in December 2018, later on they told me it will come in March 2019.

Now it seems that we have to arm ourselves with patience again, and cross fingers that it will be at least end fo 2019.

Laowa 17mm f4 Zero-D for Fujifilm GFX Coming Soon for $1,249

Laowa 17mm f4 Zero-D GFX

The wait was longer than expected, but it seems that the Laowa 17mm f/4 Zero-D GFX will come soon.

It will be priced at $1,249 and down below the google translated version from the Chinese site xitek.

The Laowa 17mmF4 lens is a super wide-angle zero-distortion lens tailored for Fuji medium format players. The equivalent full frame size is 13.5mm and the field of view angle is 113°, allowing Fuji medium format players to experience a wider picture without switching. Expected listing price of $1,249

When I visited Venus Optics at Photokina 2018, they told me the Laowa 17mm f/4 for GFX will come in December 2018, later on they told me it will come in March 2019. Well, now let’s hope that the wait is really soon over!

Also, some specs have changed now as opposed to the one displayed at Photokina. The aperture blades now seem to be 5 instead of 7 (a typo?).

For your convenience, I have translated the latest specs list appeared today in China and compared it to the ones I photographed at the Venus Optics booth at Photokina 2018.

Brought to you first, here on FujiRumors ;)
