The two new lenses are the Laowa 65mm T2.9 2X Macro APO Cine (S35) and renowned equally for its high-magnification macro lenses and its ultra-wide primes, and Laowa 100mm T2.9 2X Macro APO Cine (FF).

Laowa is renowned for its twin specialities – ultra-wide primes and high-magnification macro lenses, and as the creator/video market booms, it's adapting more and more of its lenses to the specific needs of video shooters. We have an article explaining how cine lenses are different from regular lenses; these are not the first from Laowa, as it launched a batch of four new cine lenses back in March 2022.
