Nearly a year and a half since first revealing it, Venus Optics has officially opened up pre-orders for its 17mm F4 Zero-D lens for Fujifilm GFX medium format cameras.

As we noted back in April 2018, the lens features a full-frame equivalent focal length of 13.5mm and a 113º field of view with ‘close-to-zero’ distortion, which Laowa says is ‘extremely useful for architecture and interior photographers.’ The lens is constructed of 21 elements in 14 groups, including three extra-low dispersion elements and two aspherical elements and features a minimum focusing distance of 20cm (7.9in).

The 17mm F4 Zero-D measures approximately 12.5cm (4.9in) long, weighs only 829 (1.8lbs) and has a diameter of 88mm (3.46in). The front filter thread is 86mm and Laowa is offering an optional magnetic filter holder that can easily swap out 100mm-wide slot-in filters.

Venus Optics currently has the Laowa 17mm F4 Zero-D listed on its website as available to pre-order for $1,199. The first units are expected to ship mid-August 2019.
