Close-focusing, apochromatic, and compact, the Laowa 65mm f/2.8 2x Ultra Macro APO from Venus Optics is a sleek telephoto prime designed for APS-C-format FUJIFILM X-mount mirrorless cameras. Its macro design enables a greater-than-life-size 2:1 maximum magnification along with a 6.7" minimum focusing distance to suit working with close subjects. In regard to the optics, it uses three extra-low dispersion elements to greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to achieve a high degree of clarity and color accuracy. Additionally, it is a manual focus lens, with an internal focusing design, and has a nine-blade diaphragm to contribute to a smooth bokeh quality to suit shallow depth of field applications.

Venus Optics Laowa 65mm f/2.8 2x Ultra Macro Reviews
Superb Lens at an Great Price!
Bought this for my Sony A6000 and I love it! This lens has a very high image clarity and the fact you can go up to a 2:1 macro ratio is pretty insane! I've already taken some really great photos with it, both macro and non-macro (see pictures). Functionality is very basic (everything is manual), but that also allows it to be a much more budget-friendly option and, in my opinion, more fun to use. The build quality is very nice; the focus and aperture rings are smooth and feel nice to operate. It's also not too heavy, which makes it really nice when shooting by hand!
i'm really enjoying it
Review for Laowa macro lens
I am extremely pleased with this lens! It goes well beyond my expectations for a lens designed specifically for aps crop sensor cameras, Sony a6100 in my case, not to mention the affordability of such a quality lens. I highly recommend this lens for folks using crop sensor cameras. 5 stars
Great lens for 2:1 macro I use on my a6500 great lens for the price
Much better than expected
All I can say is this lens lives up to all the hype it gets in reviews and on YouTube. Crystal clear, sharp images - and as a super macro it more than exceeds expectations. I have a whole new world open for me now. Great general purpose prime lens too.
Excellent Macro Lens
Best Macro lens for the money. Image quality is very good. It is also, a very good portrait Lens. Con: Manual Focus Only. (I don't mind manual Focus).
I've been wanting a macro lens for a long time, but wasn't sure how much I'd actually use it.When I saw this one that is relatively affordable and with so many good reviews, I decided to make the purchase. I was worried that it's totally manual focus (focus has never been my strong suit); it works beautifully with focus peaking and correct settings. Its form factor is small and lightweight enough that I'll actually use it; yet it's still solidly made.The focal length is perfect for many applications, not just macro. I'm so happy I decided to purchase this lens.
You cannot buy a better quality macro lens for the Canon M50 mark ii. I'm very pleased with this lens.
