  • Laowa 100mm 2:1 Macro Apo on Pre-Order

    I don't know if I will buy this for macro/general. Possibly, as it covers full frame* and would give me 4:1 in m4/3.

    * This is an issue:

    "to use the lens on Sony FE camera via adapter, make sure an electronics adapter is being used or else your aperture cannot be adjusted".

    Its credentials as a portrait lens would seem to be for full frame. NB it is fully manual, with some exceptions:

    "Automatic Aperture (Canon EF) , Aperture Coupling (Nikon)

    The Canon version of the Laowa 100mm Macro lens is equipped with an aperture control motor and CPU chip. The aperture can be controlled via the camera body (no aperture control ring on the lens body) and the aperture will close only during shutter release. Photographers no longer need to compose their shots in a dark viewfinder. A focus assistance indicator will also be shown in the camera. EXIF data can also be saved."

    Harold I was not aware of this lens so thanks for that.

    How much is an adapter that will auto aperture on Canon?

      The lens has been talked about for months.

      I have no idea about Canon hardware. My Laowa lenses are Nikon AI mount (apart from the 10-18mm which is Sony E) and I have asked if that mount is a fully manual version.

        I have confirmation from Laowa that the AI version is fully manual.

            I have been looking in the News Forum of Fred Miranda and have seen at least one review which says it is better than the 60mm.
