Venus Optics Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra-Macro Lens for Nikon F Mount

The compact, lightweight, and versatile high magnification Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5x Ultra Macro lens from Venus Optics is specially designed with an extended working distance (45mm at 2x and 40mm at 2.5x). It is optimized for macro shooting between 2.5X – 5X life size and allows sufficient lighting on the object for easier shooting in the field. This 25mm lens is developed for both professional and leisure macro photography and is ideal for use in the field or indoor set-ups.

Greater-Than-Life-Size Imagery

Dedicated to extreme close-up imaging, this lens is a specialized macro lens for photographing subjects at magnifications greater than life-size. Specifically developed for macro photography, this lens is designed for use within a 2.5:1 to 5:1 magnification range for producing greater-than-life-size imagery. This Laowa lens has a minimum focus distance of just 6.8-inch at the 5:1 magnification along with a comfortable 1.6-inch working distance. It is carefully designed to extend the short working distance of traditional 25mm lens in order to provide sufficient room for lighting hitting the subject.

Superb Optical Design

Complementing the close-up capabilities, the optical design incorporates 8 elements in 6 groups with an extra-low dispersion element to deliver an unprecedented corner to corner sharpness. This dispersion element reduces color fringing and chromatic aberrations for a high degree of clarity. The Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Macro Lens has one of the smallest and lightest barrel of lenses and allows more light to gather on subject and convenient to use in fields.

Higher Magnification Range

Wide-angle design with magnification range from 2.5 to 5X benefits the high magnification design by providing greater depth of field compared to lenses with telephoto or longer focal lengths. Moreover, it offers manual focus operation for precise control over focusing distance when working with close-up subjects.
