Double image magnification

The Venus Optics Laowa 85 mm f/5.6 2x Ultra Macro APO lens for Sony E allows you to adjust the focus from infinity to 2x zoom. The minimum focusing distance is only 16.3 cm! This makes it easy to capture all the details of objects as small as a grain of sand, a drop of water or a needle’s ear. However, this does not mean that macro photography is the only field in which this glass will prove its worth. The ability to focus to infinity slowly allows you to create beautiful professional portraits with artistically blurred backgrounds!

Apochromatic design

The lens’ apochromatic construction is designed for the best image quality drawn. The 13 lenses arranged in 9 groups are a guarantee of frames with proper sharpness, high quality microcontrast and full details. The innovative design also includes 3 special ultra-low dispersion elements. Thanks to them, chromatic aberration has been reduced to a minimum – both in the focus and out-of-focus areas.

Internal Focusing System

By using Internal Focusing technology, all lens movement takes place inside the lens housing. Thus, changing the focus does not affect the length of the device, providing greater comfort and optimal stability. This solution will surely be appreciated by those who use filters, sunshades or other accessories that can be screwed onto the lens. Internal Focusing will also better protect the lens from dust which is more difficult to get inside the device, compared to designs offering “external focusing”.
