LAOWA 25mm F2.8 2.5-5X ULTRA MACRO lens review by Richard Wong.
“When shooting with this lens, I feel like I’ve become the Ant man (the super hero) myself. I got shrink into a tiny size and suddenly everything in this world becomes gigantic and that completely changed how I see the world. Every ordinary object looks completely different and unusual. Even objects like a tripod or camera lens that we are so familiar with would look so different all of a sudden. I found myself spending hours and hours shooting objects I’m very familar with and the photo I got is really quite interesting.
Look at all the sample photos in this review, they are mostly just photos of something from my camera bag. And as you can see, looking at them through an ultra macro lens gives you completely different perspective. I could use this lens to shoot some projects when I’m stuck at home. Ultra macro photos of the food in the kitchen, books and magazine, my foreign coins and notes collection..etc the list could go on and on. Basically anything with interesting texture, colour or pattern could work quite well.”
