Lens Description

The Venus Laowa 100mm F/2.8 2:1 Ultra-Macro APO is a short telephoto prime designed for cameras with a Full-Frame sensor. This bright prime has a 100mm focal-length.

This prime can focus down to 25cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 2X. The high manification of the Venus Laowa 100mm F/2.8 2:1 Ultra-Macro APO allows it perform true macro photography.. The lens is not capable of autofocus and so the focus-distance must always be manually adjusted via the focus-ring.

This version has a Canon EF lens mount. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Canon EF mount cameras with Full-Frame or smaller sensors. Venus also made this lens available for Nikon F, Pentax K, Sony E, Canon RF, Nikon Z, Leica L mounts.
