Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro Lens Nikon F (FX) Summary

Nikon full frame photographers dedicated to macro have a new lens offering from Laowa in the form of this 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro Lens. As a close-up lens it captures a larger than life reproduction ratio of 2.5:1 to 5:1 and close focus distance of 17.3 to 23.4cm depending on magnification. Designed for FX it also works on DX crop sensor F-mount DSLR cameras, providing a cost effective manual-only focus model with great results.

At 25mm the lens affords excellent depth of field which is essential for macro work and the design is optimised to save space and weight at 400g measuring just 82mm x 65mm. This model has no electronic connections and does not offer infinity focus.

Features at a glance

  • Ultra Macro with 2.5 - 5x magnification
  • Compact and lightweight design
  • Bright f/2.8 maximum aperture
  • Great optical performance on Nikon DSLR cameras
  • Extended working distance
  • Up to 5:1 larger than life magnification

Good contrast, colour, and corner to corner sharpness are rendered by an optical design which includes 8 Elements in 6 groups. Interestingly eight aperture blades have been used, which does allow for smooth transitions to out of focus areas when combined with a wider aperture. An extra-low dispersion element is included to reduce chromatic aberrations and colour fringing is well controlled. Resulting images demonstrate sharp clarity and a high degree of colour accuracy.

Laowa specialises in unique lenses which offer a cost effective alternative to other Nikon DSLR lenses, such as the 15mm f/4.5 Zero-D Shift Lens for Nikon F and 100mm f/2.8 2x Ultra Macro APO Lens (Nikon F). These models continue the trend of being special featured optics and always come with a twist, such as this option with 5:1 magnification.

Our Verdict

This lens is well suited for either enthusiast or professional macro photographers. With a compact size and weight it allows you to bring it along anywhere and capture extremely detailed shots, rarely visible to the naked eye. Laowa’s Ultra Macro designation refers to the capability of capturing between 2.5 - 5x magnification, which is considerably larger than a typical 1:1 macro lens. The compact design lets you get into the action as well as mounting on or off-camera Nikon compatible flash units to light your subject. Manual-only focusing is often preferred for extreme close-up work, allowing the photographer to choose the point of focus and accurately focus stack images.

25mm is an extremely wide focal width for a macro prime, which offers a unique field of view along with deeper depth of field from the outset. The aperture range of between f/2.8 and f/22 provides opportunities to adjust the depth of field in the image and an eight-bladed diaphragm renders smooth out of focus areas. This 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro Lens continues in the theme of unique models from Laowa, providing a cost effective and good quality macro option for Nikon users.
