Laowa has officially launched its new 65mm F2.8 2x Macro APO for the EOS M and other APS-C mirrorless mounts.
This lens is 100mm equivalent with up to 2x magnification. The launch price is $400 USD.
Laowa makes some pretty interesting lenses as you can see here.

The MTF shows this to be another extremely sharp macro lens.
The EF-S 60 was THE reason to buy my first EOS SLR in 2005 and I was stunned by the IQ of that lens with 8 MPix and I am stunned about its quality just with 24 MPix sensors!
High mag stacking and desktop still is MP-E, or microscope objectives.
Sounds like a really interesting possibility for underwater macro too.
The 100mm mentioned by drainpipe above does have electronic aperture. I had hoped they would put that in the EF-M version as well, but alas.
And I of course hope they'll but it in every new EF/EF-M/RF lens they announce.
Some lenses are popular and need specific ports, most dont. The issue isn't the length changing its where the focus is on the barrel vs the focus adapter's available from the particular manufacturer. My main one is a Nauticam so should be doable unless something very surprising is involved.
