Welcome to the most revolutionary lens to hit the macro world in a very long time. Until now, 5x magnification has only been available to Canon shooters, but that is about to change. The Laowa 25mm f/2.8 offers magnification of 2.5x - 5x for Canon, Nikon, Sony and Pentax shooters in a compact, high-quality lens at a fantastic price.
Check out the in-depth reviews linked below for yourself - this lens matches it's Canon equivalent in every criteria, from sharpness to Bokeh.
Size, Weight and Build
As with all Laowa lenses, this model features an incredibly tough and reliable construction that is made to last and can be used outdoors with confidence. One of the greatest features of this lens is it's small front-end, which minimizes the shadow cast on the subject by the lens and also allows shooting a subject less than 30mm off the ground.
This lens is specially designed for a longer working distance, which varies from 45mm at 2.5x to 40mm at 5x. This minimizes the shadow cast on the subject by the lens as well as negating reflections of the camera in reflective subjects.
