Venus Optics has announced its line of Laowa Nanomorph lenses – "the world's tiniest 1.5x anamorphic series" of optics, available in seven mounts: Super 35 formats PL, Canon EF, Canon RF, Sony E, Nikon Z, L mount and Fujifilm X, and Micro Four Thirds and DJI DL. 

The EF and PL mount will share the same 'bulbous cinema lens' style design, while the mirrorless mounts will share the 'same slender soda can' aesthetic. Further, the optics will be available in two flare options: amber (with an orange ring) or blue (blue ring), which produces a correspondingly colored anamorphic streak flare.
