Laowa 100mm f/2.8 2x Ultra Macro APO Review Posted

By bdery in Review Announcements on Feb 8, 2021

Laowa (also called Venus Optics) is becoming one of the best-known third-party manufacturer of lenses for the K-mount. Concentrating on wide angle and high magnification macro lenses, the company create a successful niche for themselves.

One of their most compelling products, the Laowa 100mm f/2.8 2x Ultra Macro APO, has been available in various mounts for some time, but until now it was not available on Pentax's K-mount. This changed during the fall of 2020, with the release of this lens on K-mount.

Offering a high 2.0x magnification, automatic aperture coupling on a metal body, the lens offers a unique list of features (typical macro lenses have between 0.5x-1.0x magnification). How does it perform in actual use? Can it compete with the other macro lenses already available for the K-mount? Read our review to find out!
