Many macro lenses on the market tend to have a long focal length (from 60mm to 120mm) and the subject fills most of the frame, isolating it from the surrounding environment. The Laowa 24mm allows exceptionally close focus to the subject of 2cm @ 2:1 life-size reproduction, showing a great amount of detail and texture. At the same time, you can enjoy a compelling wide angle ‘Bugs Eye’ view (84.1 degree field of view). The fact that it can focus very close to the subject enables a lot of shooting possibilities.
This Laowa 24mm F14 2x Macro Probe lens opens up possibilities unattainable with other lenses with not only animals, but also product photography and videography. Getting in close to subjects, under, over and between objects, through tunnels and tubes, under water, – explore creative possibilities and new perspectives.
The optics are constructed from 27 individual lens elements arranged in 19 groups, with 7 aperture blades. It is 408mm long, yet despite is useful length it weighs less than 500g.
