By B&H Photo's

Characterized by its close-focusing capabilities and apochromatic design, the Sony E-mount Laowa 100mm f/2.8 2X Ultra Macro APO from Venus Optics is a unique and versatile short-telephoto prime. Featuring a pair of low dispersion elements, color fringing and chromatic aberrations have been virtually eliminated throughout the focusing range in order to achieve high clarity and color accuracy. The lens has a manual focus design to suits its macro capabilities, which permit working with subjects as close as 2:1 with a minimum focusing distance of 9.7".

Telephoto prime is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras and can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 150mm equivalent focal length.
Featuring an apochromatic designation, this lens uses a pair of low dispersion elements to effectively eliminate chromatic aberrations and color fringing for greater clarity and accurate rendering.
Greater-than-life-size 2:1 maximum magnification pairs with a 9.7" minimum focusing distance to suit working with close-up subjects.
Manual focus design, along with focus distance and depth of field scales, aids in precise focusing control.
A 13-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Where exactly does the filter attach to the lens. The inner portion just above the lens itself. Or on the outer sleeve portion?
Asked by: anthony
The lens has a 67mm thread on the front of the housing. To the best of my knowledge, you cannot attach a filter to the inner lens group. I don't know how well this will work with close-up filters.
