The Venus Optics Laowa 50mm T2.9 Macro APO Cine is the first 2:1 film lens on the market that is compatible with the Micro 4/3 system.
It features an apochromatic system (APO) to minimise chromatic aberration and distortion. Sharpening from a minimum distance of just 13.5cm combined with 2x magnification makes this lens ideal for macro photography and filming. It will also perform well when working on portraits with blurred backgrounds.
As befits a piece of equipment designed with filmmakers in mind, there is a stepless aperture adjustment and gears that are compatible with popular follow focus systems. The kit also includes a sturdy carrying case.
