With a 20.5cm minimum focusing distance, it is ideal for capturing tiny subjects and doing super close-up shots. © Micael Widell © John Hanson Apochromat APO DesignThe lens is engineered with 3 extra-low dispersion glasses, suppressing longitudinal and lateral chromatic aberration across in-focus & out-of-focus areas. Purple fringing and ghosting are controlled to the minimum throughout the aperture range. The APO characteristic reduce your post-editing time substantially especially in macro photography.   © Jimmy Chan Specifically Designed for Mirrorless CameraThe optical formula is designed based on the mirrorless system, the shorter flange distance not only improves the image sharpness but also makes the lens more compact and portable. It brings you the harmony for the size of this lens on a mirrorless camera.

    Previously funded on Kickstarter and ranked 2nd in the all-time most funded lens project, this is the world’s first consumer-grade probe lens which focuses from 2:1 macro to infinity and with a compelling wide angle ‘Bug Eye’ perspective. The wide angle design means a much greater depth of field at close distances than possible with a conventional telephoto macro lens, so more background details can now be seen. The front barrel of the lens is waterproof and an LED ring light is mounted at the tip of the lens. It can cover both standard 35mm full frame & Super35 image sensors and is super lightweight to carry.Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony FE, Pentax K, Arri PL mounts are available. “Cine-mod” version, with standard gear focus and aperture rings, is specifically designed for videography purposes. Includes variable-output Control cable and rugged aluminium carry case.The Laowa 24mm f/14 2X Probe lens is now available for sale. The package includes a white USB cable dimmer (with power adjustment), black USB cable (no power adjustment), lens bag and metal case. Please note that the LED is powered by an external battery (not included in the package). Due to its amazing demand, it may be temporarily in limited supply. We have created a Facebook community for our 24/14 Probe users to share their experience and amazing works. Macro lenses in the market tend to have a long focal length (from 60mm to 120mm) and the subject fills most of the frame, isolating it from the surrounding environment. Our Laowa 24mm, instead, allows you to focus really close – 2 cm (0.8 in.) @ 2:1  to the subject, showing a great amount of detail and texture. But at the same time, you can enjoy a  compelling wide angle ‘Bug Eye’ view (84.1°)  so that more of the background details can be included in the shot. You can easily create a very informative and stunning macro bug-eye perspective that no other lens can do! The fact that it can focus really close to the subject enables a lot of shooting possibilities. The wide angle design also means  much greater depth of field at close distances (compared to the telephoto macro lens) so that more background details can now be seen. Being able to focus so close but still have a deep depth of field is a BIG advantage for both studio and wildlife photography. DOF comparison between 24mm f/14 and traditional tele macro For example, the bug below is around 4 mm (0.15 in.) in size and it was captured by our 24mm f/14 Probe at 2:1 Macro magnification. The greater DOF  allows more leaf area to be in focus compared to telephoto lens. From indie to professional. From macro to wide angle. From still to video. From studio to wildlife. This lens is designed for everyone. This lens is designed to bring each and every photographer and videographer a new striking perspective to shoot. Are your ready to infuse your creativity into this lens and create shots that nobody has seen before?
