next OL lens test report: Laowa 100mm f/2.8 2x macro APO
#5
Good review of one of my favourite lens types ..... macro lenses...... and it's now macro season ...(northern hemisphere)

  Looks like a nice macro for those delving into super close stuff..... the fact that the front element rests within the lens barrel has it's disadvantages though (object shading and critter disturbance).... which makes for a longer lens and a more crowded space for shooting as nothing retracts frontally   .... a strange choice .... with most makers choosing internal focusing.
 Lots of metal and 2:1 ratio and no AF puts it firmly in the "dedicated macro bracket" .....

    ......for around $450 it's got a lot going for it!
