Laowa 100mm F2.8 2x Macro APO Image Gallery

Dustin Abbott

June 17th, 2019

The Laowa 100mm F2.8 2x (2:1) Macro APO lens is an intriguing new option from Chinese lensmaker Venus Optics.  It features a greater than life size magnification (2:1 rather than 1:1), so you can fill the frame twice as much as your typical macro lens.  It has a beautiful metal build, and (a Laowa first), sports an electromagnetic auto-aperture and the electronic contacts.  This makes the lens more accessible than previous Laowa products, though it remains manual focus only.  In my review I’ll explore the image quality, focus, and handling aspects of the lens along with comparing it to a few popular competitors.  Stay tuned for more coverage along with new photos added here!
