Venus Optics makes some unique and impressive lenses, and the Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro lens is another entry into that line. With its highly affordable price tag and crazy magnification capabilities, it's a very interesting option for macro photographers or anyone who's interested in the genre. This great video takes a look at the lens and its capabilities.
Coming to you from Micael Widell, this awesome video review takes a look at the Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro lens. You're probably used to 1:1 macro lenses, which project an image of the subject on the sensor up to the same size it is in real life. On the other hand, the Laowa 25mm can project images of subjects onto the sensor anywhere from 2.5 to 5 times larger than they are in real life, allowing for extreme closeups. Canon also has a lens with 5X capabilities, the MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5X, but it's almost triple the price of the Laowa, making the latter lens particularly intriguing for anyone who is interested in exploring the world that's opened up by macro photography. Check out the video above for Widell's full thoughts on this fascinating and affordable lens.
