Where exactly does the filter attach to the lens. ...

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.

Has anyone compared this lens to the Sony 90mm macro regarding IQ? I have the Sony but am considering the Laowa for its higher magnification ratio.
Asked by: Ramin
The Sony 90mm macro is a very sharp lens. It has image stabilization built in and has autofocus. The Venus does not have any of that.
