I'm highly interested in the 100mm f/2.8 2X Ultra Macro APO. And coming just a few days after the Irix 150mm f/2.8 macro was announced! I'll wait to see reviews and pricing on them first, but welcome additions.

Whoo, boy. I so want both of those lenses. Will sell my Canon 100mm L Macro if their IQ is any good. I have a couple Laowas now, and they're really quite good, especially for the price. The only problem with Laowa's insanely relentless development of new types of macro lenses is that now I feel compelled to own 5 macro lenses, where before one seemed to suit me for everything. It's like when Sigma started inventing new configurations. Not good for budgets.

What is the pricing likely to be on the Laowa 100mm? I don't have a real sense of how they price their lenses.

I hope its around 650$ mark max their 25, 15 and 60mm macros are priced very aggressively for the features they offer. Also for this new lens they have adopted electromagnetic diaphragm which might add 50-75$ to price of lens but its a good upgrade over their previous lenses.
