Laowa 105mm f2 STF Lens

Posted on Mar 4, 2016 by Alex Fice

LAOWA UK has launched their 105mm F2 STF Lens. STF stands for Smooth Trans Focus, in reference to its special optical system, which is intended to deliver smooth transitions between crisp in‐focus areas and creamy defocused background or foreground areas. This manual focus-only lens has an integrated apodisation filter that promises to provide superior bokeh rendering and crystal sharp images. So, perfect for portraiture.

Full frame compatible lens featuring 11 elements in eight groups with a 14 blade aperture and a minimum focus distance of just 0.9M. All metal alloy construction housing multi‐coated glass elements throughout.

The Laowa 105mm F2 STF lens is one of only a few lenses currently offering an apodisation effect. Available later in March with an MSRP of £649.99, in the following mounts: Nikon, Canon, Sony A, Sony E and Pentax.
