Lens Description

The Venus Laowa 60mm F/2.8 2X Ultra-Macro is a short telephoto prime designed for cameras with a Full-Frame sensor. This bright prime has a 60mm focal-length.

This prime can focus down to 18cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 2X. The high manification of the Venus Laowa 60mm 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 version has a Nikon F lens mount. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Nikon F mount cameras with Full-Frame or smaller sensors. Venus also made this lens available for Canon EF, Pentax K, Sony A, Sony E mounts.
