Laowa 85mm f/5.6 2x Ultra Macro APO Lens Officially Announced

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 new lens costs $449. Read More »
