The Venus Optics Laowa 50mm f/2.8 2X Ultra Macro APO Lens paves the way for Micro Four Thirds photographers looking to get closer to their subjects than ever before. As the first lens to offer 2:1 magnification for these mirrorless cameras, Venus’s 100mm-equivalent lens is perfect for working with insects, flowers, jewelry, or any other small, intricate subject. Complementing its optical design is a compact and lightweight build that simplifies carry and handling, whether shooting in the wild or in the studio.

Optically, this manual focus lens uses three extra-low dispersion elements and is designated an apochromat, meaning it virtually eliminates chromatic aberration to ensure color is rendered accurately across in-focus and out-of-focus areas. It has a minimum focusing distance of 5.3″, or a minimum working distance of 2.2″, and a seven-blade diaphragm helps to smooth out blurred backgrounds.
