Laowa 100mm f/2.8 2X Ultra Macro APO lens has just got two new versions. From now on, you can get this impressive macro lens for Pentax K-mount, and it’s also available with the manual aperture for Canon EF.
Laowa has released six of their popular lenses for the L mount system. The lenses include three wide angles (one zoom and two primes) along with three of their macro lenses. Laowa says that the new L-mount versions of the lenses are compatible with the Sigma fp, the Panasonic S1 series (including the S1R and S1H) as well as the Leica SL/CL cameras.
The lenses are all manual focus and the list includes some of Laowa’s favourites, including the 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 (the widest full-frame rectilinear lens that exists), the 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D, and their 100mm f/2.8 2X Ultra-Macro, that we reviewed here.
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.
