Laowa Argus 33mm f/0.95 CF APO Lens for Fujifilm X Summary

Laowa took their inspiration for this Argus 33mm f/0.95 CF APO Lens for Fujifilm X from the Ancient Greek mythical many-eyed giant, Argus. With its ultra-bright aperture this is one of the fastest Fujifilm X lenses available, demonstrating considerable prowess for low light photography and videography. The Argus APO Lens is a standard focal width prime with a full frame equivalent of just under 50mm providing versatility for street photography, portraits and general day to day shooting. An apochromatic design results in beautiful images with sharp, crisp details, which display minimal chromatic aberration. Focus breathing is particularly well controlled making this manual focus lens ideal for video as well as stills.

Our Verdict

Fujifilm X cameras are notoriously compact and the Laowa Argus 33mm f/0.95 CF APO Lens remains reasonably lightweight at 590g despite its array of optics contained within. The heft is a small price to pay for the beautiful results which can be achieved with this lens. Manual focusing lenses can take a while to master, but the results are worth pursuing with crisp details throughout the frame when you hit focus. (We posted a blog ‘Benefits Of A Manual Focus Lens’ which might be of interest if you’re considering this lens.) Content creators who shoot both video and stills will find this model particularly appealing thanks to several video-centric features. These include a stepless aperture ring, highly controlled focus breathing and a long focus throw.

Whilst Laowa is relatively new to market, lenses like this and their 65mm f/2.8 2x Ultra Macro APO Lens for Fujifilm X demonstrate considerable skill for creating unique optics. If you love crystal clear details, extraordinary sharpness and exquisite bokeh the mythical Argus could well be the lens for you.
