Lens Description

The Venus Laowa 65mm F/2.8 2X Macro is a short telephoto prime designed for cameras with a APS-C (1.5X) sensor. This bright prime has a 65mm focal-length. It provides the same field of view as a 97.5mm lens on a Full-Frame camera.

This prime can focus down to 17cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 2X. The high manification of the Venus Laowa 65mm F/2.8 2X 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 Fujifilm X lens mount. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Fujifilm X mount cameras. Venus also made this lens available for Sony E mounts.
