Weighing only 259 grams and just 84.51 mm in length, the Laowa 85mm f/5.6 2x Ultra Macro APO lens can be focused as close as 16.3 cm from subjects, where it provides twice life-size magnification. Its optical design consists of 13 elements in nine groups and includes three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) elements. Internal focusing keeps dust out and ensures a constant lens length during focusing. The filter thread accepts 46 mm diameter filters and the seven-bladed iris diaphragm creates a circular aperture for attractive bokeh.

This lens has an RRP of US$449 without tax. It is supplied with a cylindrical lens hood and front and rear caps. Click here for more information.
