Item Description
VENUS OPTICS LAOWA 12mm f/2.8 ZERO-D LENS, NEW, for Pentax K1, $549

Full frame, MF, with CPU contact for auto aperture control & EXIF data on Pentax bodies.

New, open box - I opened to inspect and take photos for the listing - lens is perfect in every way and is new.
Purchased new from B&H Photo.
Both lens caps and metal lens hood. The lens front cap is a very nice metal push on cap with black velvet inside lining. Superb quality.

Reason for selling: switched from Pentax recently, so selling my Pentax gear and collection.

Included with the lens, some accessories:
1) Laowa 95mm filter ring accessory dedicated to this lens. It fits the hood bayonet on the front of the lens and accepts 95mm screw in circular filters. See last photo. This ability to take screw in circular filters is unique for a 12mm FF lens and especially attractive for landscape photography. 2) A Laowa 95mm pinch type lens cap is also included to fit the accessory filter hood ring.
3) A new slim 95mm protection filter for the filter ring. Hood & filter suitable for full frame at all apertures - made by Laowa dedicated to this lens.
4) Pentax K/canon EF lens adapter with CPU chip programmed for this lens so that it can be used on Canon EOS cameras with EXIF data reporting to the camera - test report attached. Adapter also included in the price.
These additional accessories, valued at $150 are included in the price, as is the shipping.
