Laowa Venus Optics 15mm f/4 Macro 1:1 Sony Alpha SLR Camera
The new Laowa 15mm f/4 1:1 Macro lens is the first lens in the market which posseses a ultra wide angle of view and 1:1 Macro
ability. This allows photographers from around the world to start experiencing the rather undeveloped field of ‘Wide Angle
Macro Photography’ without using a extension tube. Macro Lenses currently in the market tends to have a mid to long focal
length and it limits users to take very close-up shots on the insect or flowers, without showing much of the background
details like its habitat or environment.
