Venus Optics has just officially announced the new Laowa 85mm F5.6 2x Ultra Macro Apo lens for Canon RF, Nikon Z, Sony FE and Leica M mounts. It is a mirrorless-designed macro lens with 28.55° angle of view for full frame. It is the smallest 2x macro lens in the Full Frame market. It weighs just around 252g (Leica M mount without caps and hood) which is super portable and handy for macro shooters. It features an apochromatic (APO) characteristic that chromatic aberration at both ‘in-focus’ & ‘out-of-focus’ is compressed to minimum. This new lens is able to focus from 2:1 magnification to infinity which can serve as both macro and portrait lens with great image quality.
This is the first image of the upcoming Voigtlander COLOR-SKOPAR 28mm F2.8 SL II S Aspherical lens, leaked at Nokishita-c. It is rumored to be officially announced soon.
This new COLOR-SKOPAR 28mm F2.8 has crab claws and has a more classical design than the old model. It looks cool when combined with a Nikon MF film camera. We are wondering if the optics will look retro or if they will be modern lenses.
