The Laowa 25mm f2.8 2.5-5x Ultra Macro is a very special lens: one of only a handful that can deliver up to 5x magnification without the use of bellows or extension tubes. It’s corrected for full-frame cameras, and set to 5x can capture an area of just 4.8x7.2mm. In his review Thomas finds out if it’s the best macro for…

The Laowa 15mm f4.5 Zero-D Shift is the widest shift lens available for full-frame cameras. The front-end can be shifted 11mm in any direction to minimise perspective distortions when shooting architecture or interiors. Thomas tests it in his latest in-depth review!

The 50mm focal length delivers natural-looking coverage, but the fast 1.2 aperture allows very shallow depth-of-field effects, while Sony’s latest G Master optics promise both high resolution and smooth rendering. Here’s my full review!
