Venus 60mm f/2.8 2X Ultra-Macro Lens 2:1 for Pentax US$379 posted or make offer
Posted By: i_trax, 01-05-2015, 08:26 PM


It is MF lens
Magnification range from 0.1x to 2x. Easily alter the magnification ratio without installing any extension tube or teleconverter. Ideally suited for rapidly changing macro photography scenarios.
Wide magnification range also makes it extremely useful for shooting macro objects (e.g. insects) with different sizes.
Designed also for normal shooting purposes with a 60mm focal length. An all-in-one solution for normal portrait shooting as well as ultra-macro photography.
Houses with 9 elements in 7 groups patented optical structure to provide great deal of image clarity and color renderness.
The optical system consists of 2 major moving lenses groups in order to minimize the barrel distortion.
14 pieces of aperture blades form a close-to-circular aperture, capable of creating creamy shallow depth of view.
The enclosure of the lens is made of metal to strengthen its durability.
A complimentary lens pouch and filter are included in the package.
Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony Alpha and Pentax K mount are available

Even though we're going by paper specs for the Venus lens, how would it compare as a macro lens to the D FA 100WR? The Venus says 2:1 magnification, but the 100WR says 1:1. Would the D FA 100WR be the better choice out of the 2 for a macro lens?

I'll wait until people get their hands on these and can run some tests.

What is more interesting are the XPro variable length extension tubes with contacts for AF. Canon and Nikon only unfortunately:

Venus is 2:1 not 1:2 :-)
