Venus Optics recently unveiled the Laowa Magic Shift Converter (MSC) for Sony Full Frame E-mount cameras. The Laowa Magic Shift Converter is a lens adapter built with a patented optics system, which expands the image circle of the ultra-wide angle lenses. The shift mechanism on the adapter takes advantage of the enlarged image circle and shifts the camera sensor along the axis. The MSC is specially designed for the Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D lens and it converts the lens into a 17mm f/4 Zero-D lens with +/- 10mm shift capability. It comes with a close-to-zero distortion feature. Additionally, the MSC comes with a 360° rotation structure which allows the user to shoot in both horizontal and portrait orientation. The lens structure includes 5 elements in 4 groups. Its dimensions are 69.6 x 44.1mm and weighs about 360g. The Laowa Magic Shift Converter's Canon variant is currently available on the official website of Venus Optics (http://www. venuslens.net/) and their authorized resellers.
