Lens Description

The Venus Laowa 50mm F/2.8 2X Ultra-Macro is a short telephoto prime designed for cameras with a Four-Thirds (2X) sensor. This bright prime has a 50mm focal-length. It provides the same field of view as a 100mm lens on a Full-Frame camera.

This prime can focus down to 13.5cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 2X. The high manification of the Venus Laowa 50mm F/2.8 2X 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 lens is only available for Micro Four-Thirds. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Micro Four-Thirds mount cameras.
