Pergear announced the new improved 14mm f/2.8 II Full Frame manual focusing L-mount lens (preorder here).

Press text:

The Pergear 14mm F2.8 Ultra-wide lens is designed for Full-frame Sony E-mount, Nikon Z-mount, Canon RF-mount, and Leica L-mount mirrorless cameras, but can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 21mm equivalent focal length.

13 Elements in 9 groups, 2 aspherical elements and 5 ultra-high refractive index glass, 10 aperture blades help to control distortion and spherical aberrations for improved sharpness and accurate rendering. 3 extra-low dispersion elements are used to reduce colour fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce high clarity and colour accuracy.

Impressively wide 114° angle of view pairs with a rectilinear design, which renders subjects with minimal distortion in order to suit the landscape and architectural applications.

The bright f/2.8 aperture is designed to suit work in a variety of lighting conditions and also for controlling depth of field and isolating subject matter. The Nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Manual focusing design and a minimum focusing distance of 22cm suit working with close-up subjects. The clicked aperture ring is stepped with the right amount of resistance and click, marking full stops from F/2.8 to F/22.

Equipped with an 82mm filter adapter, the Pergear 14mm F2.8 II provides versatility in terms of creative options. You can easily attach filters to enhance your images and experiment with various effects.
