Anhui, China—Venus Optics launched the Laowa 90mm F2.8 2x Ultra Macro APO lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras. Furthermore, it is the eighth addition to Laowa’s 2:1 magnification macro lens lineup.

The new 90mm lens not only inherits the 2:1 magnification to infinity ability and APO design but is also much smaller in size. “It provides mirrorless systems with superb optical performance and delivers outstanding sharpness. Satisfying photographers’ need for exploring unbelievable details our eyes cannot normally see and offer surprising versatility for capturing wildlife, products and portraits,” the company announced.

The ultra-macro lens reproduces 2:1 magnification of life-size images, showing extensive details in high resolution. With an 8-inch minimum focusing distance, it is an option for capturing tiny subjects and super close-up shots.

In addition, its magnification ranges from 0.1x to 2x; this permits photographers to capture objects of different sizes without changing the lens.

The extended magnification range and focus to infinity also provide more flexibility in framing the image.

The lens’s APO characteristic is also favorable to macro photography because it can reduce post-editing time and improve image quality.

Furthermore, the lens uses three extra-low dispersion glass elements to suppress longitudinal and lateral chromatic aberration across in-focus and out-of-focus areas. Purple fringing and ghosting are also controlled throughout the aperture range.

The optical formula, based on the mirrorless system, also has a shorter flange distance. Consequently, it improves the image sharpness and makes the lens more compact and portable. The lens weighs 22 ounces with dimensions of Ø74 by 4.7 inches.

The lens also features 13 aperture blades to create pleasing and creamy bokeh in round shapes. Moreover, its internal focusing design helps to avoid collision of the lens with the subject. It can also prevent the lens from dusting.
