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 Sony E-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
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.
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).
Great Fuji x Macro
A manual lens that is very sharp and well constructed. Manual is fine for my macro work. Good price point.
You cannot buy a better quality macro lens for the Canon M50 mark ii. I'm very pleased with this lens.
i'm really enjoying it
