The 60mm f2.8 2:1 Ultra-Macro Lens by Laowa offers a magnification range of 2x without needing any extension tubes or tele converters. It has a bright f/2.8 aperture and is manually controllable with both a focus and an aperture control ring. It delivers high end optical performance with 9 elements arranged in 7 groups and uses 14 aperture blades to provide a beautiful circular bokeh.
2:1 Ratio Perfect for Macro
The lens is designed specifically for ultra-close up macro photography with an impressive 2:1 reproduction ratio. That means that subjects are projected onto your sensor with a massive 2x magnification so close-up fine detail can be captured with ease.
The Ultra-macro lens features a manual focus ring as well as a manual aperture ring so you are in complete control over your shot. As with most manual lenses there is no electronic communication with the camera so we suggest enabling focus peaking where available and setting your camera to aperture priority for optimum sharpness and accurate exposure in your image.
Incredibly Diverse Focal Length
With a 60mm focal length the lens can be used for close-up shooting but also for normal portrait photography with excellent results. With a minimal focus distance of 18.5cm you can focus on your subjects features to capture the perfect composition.
Optimised for APS-C Sized Sensors
Designed especially for APS-C sized sensors the lens is also compatible with Full Frame sensors but may display slight vignetting when focused at infinity. When shooting macro subjects the lens performs perfectly on either sensor size.
F/2.8 Aperture with 14 Blades
The lens has an ultra-bright 2.8 aperture that allows you to shoot with a shallow depth of field and it uses 14 aperture blades to create a circular aperture which helps to separate your subject from the background while producing beautiful bokeh at the same time.
9 Optical Elements arranged in 7 Groups
The construction of the lens utilises 9 lens elements which are specifically arranged into 7 groups to provide excellent optical results. Barrel Distortion is controlled by the movement of 2 groups of lens elements while changing focus.
Boasting a metal enclosure, the Venus Optics Laowa 60 mm f2.8 2X Ultra Macro Lens is durable and rigid with a construction that ensures years of dependable use in the field. The lens also comes with a lens pouch for protection.
Delivering excellent image results this lens is well suited to the photographer who wants to get closer to their subject, to focus on the capture the finer details while telling their story.
