Featuring a magnification range from 0.1x to 2x, makes this lens ideally suited for rapidly changing macro photography scenarios without using any extension tube. The wide magnification range is very useful for shooting macro objects (e.g. insects) of different sizes. The lens is also designed for normal shooting purposes with a 60mm focal length, providing an all-in-one solution for normal portrait shooting as well as ultra-macro photography.
The versatile design offered by this manual focus, manual aperture lens lets you work with close-up subjects and then quickly switch to portraits or distant subjects without attaching extension tubes. Ideally suited for rapidly changing shooting situations. Unlike other macro lenses that focus to 1:1, the LAOWA 60mm f/2.8 2X Ultra-Macro can produce images from infinity to 2 times lifesize!
This patented optical powerhouse has 9 elements in 7 groups to provide impressive image quality and color accuracy. The optical system consists of 2 major moving lens groups in order to control barrel distortion. This lens design actually utilizes the lens barrel to shade the front lens element when focusing at distance subjects. Fourteen aperture blades form a close-to-circular aperture, capable of creating creamy shallow depth of field.
The lens barrel is made of metal for maximum strengthen and durability. A complimentary lens pouch and filter are included in the package. Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony Alpha and Pentax K mounts are available. While it is designed for use on APS-C formats, this lens can also be used with Full Frame cameras. Note: on Full Frame cameras there will be slight vignetting while shooting at infinity. For Macro shooting, there is no vignetting.
