Venus Optics continues its quick move into the RF mount by announcing an RF mount version of their very unique Laowa 24mm f/14 2X Macro Probe lens.
Laowa 24mm f/14 2X Macro Probe 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 front barrel of the lens is waterproof and an LED ring light is mounted at the tip of the lens which makes the lens capable for shooting in wet or dusty environments or with fine powders. Create with no limits.
I have updated the Canon Rumors list of available third-party RF mount lenses.
Laowa 24mm f/14 2X Macro Probe lens is available directly from Venus Optics and will it authorized retailers in the near future.
Laowa 24mm f/14 2X Macro Probe lens $1599
Look where we've came from; from rental only lens, becoming affordable owner/operartor items with Atlas' Orions, then we've got Vazen and Sirui for the masses.
I think we're maybe 2-3 years away from shooting 1.65 or 1.8 S35 on a EOS R mkII
We didn't have long to wait. Haven't we?
Sirui announced an Indiegogo campaign for FF 50mm x1.6 squeeze T2.9 lens in RF, L, Z, & E mounts. If history is prologue, we'll soon have a 35, 24 and 75mm affordable anamorphic FULL FRAME RF lenses from them in the next few much months.
