This new 100mm lens can cover full frame sensor size and focus from 2:1 magnification to infinity. The lens has a similar physical size to other 100mm Macro lenses in the market but its wider magnification range allows macro photographers to capture subjects at any sizes. This 100mm f/2.8 lens can also focus to infinity and serve as a portrait lens with exceptional optics quality. Only Canon EF version is equipped with a CPU chip and motor for aperture control via the camera. All other mounts are manual and aperture is controlled by the aperture ring on the lens.

Features of the Laowa 100mm f/2.8 2X Ultra Macro APO Lens

2:1 Magnification at same physical size

The Laowa 100mm f/2.8 2X Ultra Macro lens is the second 2:1 Macro lens in the Laowa lineup, with the first one being the 60mm f/2.8. While most 100mm macro lenses in the market can only reproduce 1:1 magnification (life-size) images, this lens offers an extended 2x magnification. This means that more details can be seen through the lens, allowing photographers to capture bugs and other subjects at different sizes.
