Venus Optics announces $499 Laowa 90mm F2.8 2x Ultra Macro APO lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras

Venus Optics has announced the Laowa 90mm F2.8 2x Ultra Macro APO, its latest macro lens designed for full-frame mirrorless camera systems.

The lens is constructed of 13 elements in 10 groups, including three extrea-low dispersion (ED) elements. It features a 13-blade aperture diaphragm, has an aperture range of F2.8, uses a 67mm front filter thread and has a minimum focusing distance of 20.5cm, at which it offers 2x magnification.

Despite its longer focal length, the lens is significantly smaller than its contemporaries, including Laowa’s own 100mm F2.8 2x macro lens, which was released three years ago. It measures 74mm (2.9”) in diameter by 120mm (4.7”) long and weighs 619g (21.8oz). And it won’t get any larger than that, thanks to its internal focus mechanism.

Below is a sample gallery of full-resolution images, provided by Venus Optics:

The Laowa 90mm F2.8 2x Ultra Macro APO is available to purchase starting today for Canon RF, L, Nikon Z and Sony E mount camera systems for $499.
