Venus Optics launches the Laowa 25mm F2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro

Laowa officially announces the Laowa 25mm 2.5-5x macro.

Keith at Northlight who has already done a review of the Laowa 25mm f2.8 2.5-5x macro had this to say about the macro lens;

From an image quality point of view, there was little I could fault the lens with. It shows a slight bit of longitudinal chromatic aberration (purple/green tinges to OOF areas), but not excessive.  The 8 blade aperture gives better looking OOF highlights than the 6 bladed Canon MP-E65mm.

Perhaps the only area that may concern some is the lack of stop down, meaning that it’s either a dark viewfinder at smaller apertures or you have to stop down manually before the shot. It’s no problem for my sorts of use.

Laowa press information;

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 & 40mm at 2x) and smaller lens barrel. This allow a sufficient lighting con 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 lens 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, Pentax K & Sony FE mounts are available.

Retail price is expected to be around $399 and will start shipping in late March
