Venus Optics unveil the Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra-Macro, an affordable extreme macro option for full frame cameras. Featuring a small lens barrel, lightweight design and extended working distance, the new Laowa lens provides an extreme macro photography option for DSLR and mirrorless cameras. The most compact and versatile high magnification macro lens.
This lens is optimized for macro shooting between 2.5X - 5X life size. The lens is specially designed with an extended working distance (45mm at 2.5x and 40mm at 2x) and smaller lens barrel. This allows a sufficient lighting on the object for easier shooting in the field. The lens is much more compact and lighter than other comparative products. This lens also provides a relatively greater depth of field compared to other extreme macro lenses in the market. The Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X is developed for both professional and leisure macro photography, to be used on the field or in indoor set-up.
Canon EF, Nikon F and Sony FE mounts are available.
Extended Working Distance
The new Laowa 25mm f/2.8 provides a magnification range from 2.5:1 to 5:1 and offers a flexibility for photographers to capture macro subjects with different sizes. Carefully designed to extend the short working distance of traditional 25mm lens in order to provide sufficient room for lighting hitting the subject.40mm @ 5:1 45mm @ 2.5:1
Superb Optical Performance
The 8 elements in 6 groups design with an extra low-dispersion element creates outstanding image sharpness across different magnifications and greatly reduces the chromatic aberrations and color fringing. The wide focal length gives a relatively deeper depth of field than lenses with longer focal length. This feature is particularly essential for photographers who can then stack fewer images for achieving even sharpness across the frame.
