1. Introduction

While reviewing Venus Optics products I always mention in the introduction that I like their line-up of lenses very much and for a very good reason. Practically every instrument features an interesting property or function which makes them easily distinguishable and unique among similar devices.

The Venus Optics LAOWA 100 mm f/2.8 2X Ultra Macro APO is another lens which fits that idea perfectly well. There are a lot of macro 2.8/100 instruments, available on the market, but Laowa decided to go one step further - instead of offering the 1:1 reproduction ratio, a standard in this class, they included a much better close-up, stemming from 2:1 reproducttion ratio. As you see, once again you get a product that offers more than any of its rivals.

This fact is also a perfect argument to put the lens through the paces and see how it performs in our tests. We would like to thank FoxFoto the distributor of Venux Opticx Laowa products in Poland, as they efficiently managed to send one specimen of that lens to our editorial office.
