Venus Optics Unveils Macro Lens for Full-frame Cameras


Venus Optics has announced the release of Laowa 85 mm f/5.6 2x Ultra Macro APO, a compact and affordable mirrorless fullframe macro lens. The macro lens weighs approximat­ely 259 g (Sony E) and measures Ȱ53 mm × 81 mm in size. A 46 mm filter thread is also provided for circular screw-in filters.

This lens can focus from infinity to 2x magnificat­ion along with a minimum focussing distance of 16.3 cm. The optical design consists of 13 elements in 9 groups with 3 extra-low dispersion elements which eliminates the colour fringing at both in-focus and out-offocus areas. The lens barrel does not extend in internal focussing design when changing focus. It reportedly avoids collision of the lens and the objects and helps in reducing the chance of dust getting into the lens.

The Laowa 85 mm f/5.6 2x Ultra Macro APO is currently available for order on the official website of Venus Optics and their authorised resellers. Recommende­d Retail Price is USD 449 (Canon RF, Nikon Z, Sony FE, Leica M). Pricing may vary in different countries. Shipping started from early December onwards.
