Lens Description

The Venus Laowa 25mm F/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra-Macro is a medium telephoto prime designed for cameras with Full-Frame sensors. This bright prime has a 25mm focal-length.

This prime is capable of focusing down to 17.3cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 5X. The high manification of the Venus Laowa 25mm F/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra-Macro 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 Nikon F lens mount. Follow this link to see all current compatible digital cameras: Nikon F mount cameras with Full-Frame or larger sensor. Venus also made this lens available for Canon EF, Pentax K, Sony E, Canon RF, Nikon Z mounts.
