Laowa’s 25mm f/2.8 Ultra Macro lens offers an amazing magnification range of 2.5-5x, so you can capture tiny subjects up to 5x bigger than they are in real life. Like most macro lenses, it boasts a huge depth of field range so you can focus on what’s important. The relatively small size lets you get nice and close to objects, but it also offers a working distance of up to 45cm away. The bright f2.8 aperture lets in a lot of light which is key when taking macro shots while the minimum focusing distance range of 17.3 to 23.4cm lets you keep enough distance to minimise shadows on your image.
Versatile Macro Magnification Range up to 5X
Designed for full frame cameras, the 25mm F/2.8 2.5-5x Ultra Macro lens is an exciting addition to Laowa’s line-up. A versatile magnification range from 2.5x to 5x allows you to capture tiny subjects at up to 5x actual size on your camera’s sensor for some serious detail. It’s perfect for macro shots of insects, plants, and more.
Adaptable Working Distances
The working distance changes to suit the different magnifications, from 40mm to 45mm, with 17.3cm being the minimum focusing distance for a 5:1 image. This adaptability lets you control the amount of natural light reaching the front of the lens so you’re not blocking the object with your own shadow, something that can occur with macro photography.
Bright f2.8 Maximum Aperture
An f/2.8 maximum aperture ensures that more light reaches your camera’s sensor and allows you to control depth of field which can be used to really highlight the in-focus parts of your image. The lens steps down to f/16 for deeper focus, ideal when working with additional lighting.
Manual Focus and Aperture Ring
A large, easy-to-grip manual focusing ring offers precise control over critical focus, something so important when creating macro images. The lens also has a separate aperture ring for easy and intuitive depth of field adjustment.
8 Elements in 6 groups
The optical design consists of 8 elements in 6 groups with an ultra-low dispersion lens to help manage colour fringing and aberrations. Each element is multi-coated to reduce glare and reflections for sharp images with excellent contras and colour reproduction.
Compact and Lightweight Design
Featuring a compact and lightweight design, the Laowa 25 mm f/2.8 5X Ultra Macro lens is an easy addition to your lens collection. It’s durable and has the same high-quality feel that Laowa is known for, making it a great option for your next macro adventure.
