Just released: Laowa 65mm f/2.8 2x Ultra-Macro APO for Nikon Z-mount


Venus Optics just released their Laowa 65mm f/2.8 2x Ultra-Macro APO APS-C lens for Nikon Z-mount:

Laowa 65mm f/2.8 is optimized for mirrorless cameras with APS-C format. As the only macro lens in the market that is capable of producing 2X life-size images, the lens allows photographers to use it for a wide range of subjects. The 65mm f/2.8 also inherited the excellent Apochromatic optical(APO) design from Laowa 100mm f/2.8 2X macro, which suppresses the chromatic aberration at both in-focus and out-of-focus areas to the minimum. Delivering stunning details and contrast from centre to corner even when using a wide-open aperture. This professional prime lens delivers exceptional resolution and sharpness.

With only 335g(11.8oz), the lens is a very versatile lens for APS-C mirrorless cameras. The internal focus design can maintain the overall lens length during use, which avoids any collision or damage to the subject. Thanks to the advantage of its lightweight and compactness, this lens is definitely a great companion for outdoor and ecological photography.
