The Laowa 17mm f/4 GFX Zero-D is currently the widest native lens for Fujifilm GFX cameras. Featuring a 113° angle of view, the lens is ideal for various types of photography including landscape, interior, architecture and astrophotography.
The 86mm filter thread allows quick attachment of filters for maximum creativity under different light conditions. The lens also features a 5-blade aperture system for creating pleasing sun-star renderings (10-point stars).
Due to the 0.79x “crop” factor of the medium format-sized sensor of GFX cameras, the angle of view is equivalent to a 13mm lens on a 35mm format sensor. It is extremely helpful when shooting interiors or in tight spaces. More information and details can now be included in the frame, compared to any other wide angle lens on the market.

Since the Laowa 17mm does not have any electronic contacts, f-stop is not recorded in an image’s EXIF data. The EXIF will say f/1.0, but actually, most of the shots in the gallery were shot in the f/8 to f/11 range. Higher resolution images are available with a download link, after clicking on a thumbnail. None of the images have had any software correction for barrel distortion, so you can see how incredibly well the lens is optically corrected!
