The Laowa 65mm f/2.8 2x Ultra-Macro APO lens is designed for use with APS-C mirrorless cameras so the latest release will only be compatible with Nikon’s Z50 camera. The only macro lens in the market that is capable of producing 2x life-size images, it weighs just 335 grams and makes a great companion for outdoor and ecological photography. It is now available in Canon EF-M, Fuji X, Sony E & Nikon Z mounts. The suggested retail price in the US is US$399.

Both lenses are available to purchase through the Venus Optics official website and authorised resellers.
