Focus to Infinity and 2:1 Magnification
Launched in June 2019, the Laowa 100mm f/2.8 2X Ultra Macro APO lens is the 2nd 2:1 Macro lens with infinity focus in Laowa Macro lineup. Moreover, the 2:1 magnification is an impressive feature, which is rarely seen on most telephoto macro lenses on the market.
Also, unlike other ultra-macro lenses in the market, the Laowa 100mm can also focus to infinity, making it one of the most versatile lens for macro photography.
The Laowa 100mm f/2.8 2X Macro features an apochromatic (APO) design. In addition, the lens controls CA thoroughly down to a minimum thanks to an advanced optical design. This design includes 2 extra-low dispersion elements designed to remove image artifacts.
The lens covers full frame sensors and is available in a total of 5 different mounts: Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony FE, and now Canon RF and Nikon Z.
