According to manufacturer, Venus Optics, the 15mm f/4.5 Shift lens is the widest shift lens available for full-frame cameras with a 110 degree angle of view and huge 65 mm image circle. The wider perspective offers great flexibility for photographers to capture architecture and interior shots when space is limited. The lens supports up to +/-11mm of shift for full frame cameras and +/-8mm for medium format cameras, enabling photographers to correct perspective distortions. Support for 360-degree rotation also increases the ability to further expand the angle of view by stitching multiple images. Focusing is manual only.

The optical design of the 15mm f/4.5 Shift lens consists of 17 elements in 11 groups, including two glass aspherical and three ED elements. Five diaphragm blades produce 10-point sunstars. The minimum focusing distance is 20 cm and the lens is 103 mm long with a diameter of 79 mm and weight of 597 grams.
