Launched in the summer of 2019, the Laowa 100mm f/2.8 2X Ultra Macro APO lens turned out to be a pretty impressive piece of gear. It offers 2:1 magnification as well as infinity focus, making it a really versatile lens. And if you shoot a Canon or Nikon mirrorless, rejoice, because this lens is now available in Nikon Z and Canon RF mounts.
Earlier this year, Venus Optics launched two wide-angle lenses for Nikon Z. The company is now expanding its Z-mount line, along with the Canon RF mount line. Three of Venus Optics’ most popular lenses are now available for Nikon’s and Canon’s full-frame mirrorless cameras. The 12mm f/2.8, 25mm f/2.8, and 100mm f/2.8 already exist in a few other mounts, but they are now available to Nikon Z and Canon RF users as well.
Initially announced last month along with a couple of other lenses, the Laowa 100mm f/2.8 2:1 Super Macro is now official. Today, Laowa has released pricing and availability information for the new lens. Following on from the success of the Laowa 60mm f/2.8 2:1 macro, the new Laowa 100mm f/2.8 goes above and beyond most similar focal length macros by increasing the magnification ratio to double that of its competitors.
Laowa has announced four rather interesting lenses. Well, three interesting lenses and one’s kind of a “huh?”. It’s an odd assortment to release all at once, but all four lenses do boast a little something special.
