Laowa’s 60mm f2.8 2X Ultra Macro is designed for versatility, offering the scope to capture super-macro, larger-than-life images with its 6cm minimum focusing distance and 2:1 magnification ratio, all the way to capturing stunning portraiture with expressive subject-background separation. This fully manual focus and aperture lens offers impressive image quality and edge-to-edge sharpness throughout the focusing range, and its 14-bladed round aperture diaphragm offers an aesthetically pleasing smooth defocus effect for your out-of-focus areas. The lens structure is made up of 9 elements, arranged into 7 groups, two of which will move whilst focusing to maintain image sharpness and avoid barrel distortion.

Laowa 60mm f2.8 2X Ultra Macro Lens Key Features:

An Intricate Design

This lens is equipped with a simple yet intricate lens structure that allows this lens to be used for a surprising amount of applications. The structure is comprised of nine glass elements that are arranged in seven groups. The high-quality and premium glass used ensured clarity-rich images, edge-to-edge sharpness and accurate colour rendition in each shot taken.

The main feature that characterises this lens is its ability to focus on subjects as close as 6cm away with a 2:1 magnification ratio. This ability provides incredible larger-than-life-size macro images without the use of extension tubes. The lens is also able to focus all the way to infinity with a 1:10 magnification ratio which is what enables this lens to be used for a variety of uses. You can utilise the maximum f2.8 aperture for low-light shooting but also to play with selective focus and subject-background-separation of either close-up shots or portrait photography. The 14-blade rounded diaphragm makes for super-smooth out-of-focus areas with aesthetically pleasing bokeh.

Rugged and Ready

To protect the intricate lens structure, this lens is housed in an all-metal lens barrel that offers heightened durability and rigidity, able to withstand the rigours of professional use. This lens has a fully manual focus and aperture control without any electronic communication between lens and camera which reflect the precision engineering of the housing and internal structure. Additionally, there’s a built-in lens hood that is designed to prevent stray light from entering the lens barrel and causing flare and/or ghosting in your images. This hood also provides a small amount of protection for the front lens element from accidental knocks and bumps. Finally, Laowa includes a 62mm UV filter that will add a further layer of protection for your front lens element.

Is this lens also suitable for portrait photography?

The Laowa 60mm f2.8 is a fantastic dynamic portrait lens, with a 14-blade diaphragm contributing to the formation of a pleasing bokeh aesthetic. This allows your subject to take centre frame, with an emphasis on clarity and colour accuracy.
