  1. Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1, as the very name suggests, has the focal length of 150mm and the 1:1 mapping scale, thanks to which it is to ensure very convenient work during macro photography. Due to the longer focal length, we will be able to avoid covering the light falling on photographed objects and scaring them away. The optical system of the lens is based on twelve lenses placed in nine groups – there are three low-dispersion elements and four made of high-refraction glass. The producer assures that the distortion should be reduced to the level of 0,01%. The lens is equipped with the internal focusing system thanks to which the whole construction does not change its size during focusing. The lens’ aperture consists of eleven blades and it can be closed up to the value of f/32. The characteristic traits of the device should be nice background blurring and the diffraction which should happen later than in other lenses of such a type. Sharp photographs can be taken already from the distance of 34.5cm. 1). Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 The lens has the "Dragonfly" finishing, which means that it is a combination of advantages of "Firefly" and "Blackstone" lenses – the frame has been made of aluminum and the housing – of aluminum and magnesium alloys with composite elements. The whole construction has been sealed with particular focus put on the most sensitive places (front lens, focus lock ring, focus ring and bayonet). The lens is relatively light and small, its dimensions are 87 × 135mm and its weight - 840g. We will be able to mount filters with the diameter of 77mm on its front. 2). Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 The ring with the rotation scale of 270 degrees is to ensure high precision and culture of work. There is also a possibility of blocking the focus ring. The lens’ processor enables the control of the aperture from the level of the camera and the AE mode makes it possible to use semi-automatic modes (PASM). Thanks to this, the information on confirming focus from the level of the camera will be saved in the EXIF data. 3). Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 If we buy the Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 lens, we will receive it in a stiff case in which we will also find a deep sunshield and the tripod grip in the Arca Swiss standard. The lens will be available with the Canon EF, Nikon F and Pentax K mounts. We don’t know yet when the lens is going to appear on sale. Its price is also unknown.
  2. The Sigma's Art series will soon become enriched by a new macro lens. The optical system of the new lens is unique and it cannot be found in the previous models of the series. As it is usually the case with Sigma, the lens has to be different than all other lenses available on the market. This one is equipped with a different mechanism of external focusing, which is going to be a disadvantage for many macro photographers. However, Sigma is of opinion that it is impossible to create a perfect lens of such a type, which adjusts focus not changing its external length at the same time. Zeiss lenses work in similar ways and they cannot be considered as poor with regard to optical parameters. 1). Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro Art The optical system of the lens consists of 13 elements, placed in 10 groups, among which 6 are special low-dispersion SLD and FLD lenses. Besides that, there are also aspherical lenses, thanks to which the image sharpness is supposed to be even within the whole frame. The lens is equipped with a 9-blade aperture and a maximum zoom of 1:1, as most of the lenses of this type. The minimum focus distance is 25.8. ` Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro ART is equipped with the autofocus based on the DC drive and the sharpness can be adjusted manually with the use of a big knob. The Sigma EM-140 DG flash, as well as Sigma USB Dock, can be connected to the lens, which is definitely going to be useful... The lens weighs 515g/18.2oz and it has the dimensions of 70,8×105,8mm. It is fully sealed. 2). Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro Art Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro ART will be available on sale in the versions with the Canon EF and Sony E mounts. As for now, it seems that the lens will not be available with the Nikon F mount. The price of the lens and its date of availability have not been revealed yet.
  3. Venus Optics Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro is an interesting lens which has been presented some time ago. It is a full-frame lens, designed having in mind macrography. The optical system of the lens enables the image zoom from 2.5× to 5× and it consists of 8 elements placed in 6 groups, among which one lens is made of UD low-dispersion glass. 1). Venus Optics Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro Each element has been covered with anti-reflective coatings, which are supposed to significantly minimize light reflection and the appearance of light leaks and flares. It is also supposed to improve overall contrast of photographs in demanding conditions. The lens is equipped with a 8-blade aperture which can be regulated within the range of f/2.8-f/16. The focal length of 25mm ensures 10.3-grade field of view. The lens is, of course, manual. 2). Venus Optics Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro Venus Optics Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro is to appear on sale in April. It will be available with Nikon F, Canon EF, Sony FE and Pentax K mounts and it will cost $399.
  4. Today, Voigtländer presented its latest manual fixed lenses dedicated for full-frame mirrorless Sony cameras Voigtländer Macro APO Lanthar 110mm f/2.5 and Color-Skopar 21mm f/3.5 The first one should especially interest macrography lovers, and the second one - documentalists and street fans. Voigtländer Macro APO Lanthar 110mm f/2.5 consists of 14 elements placed in 12 groups. As the producer assures, the designed optical system has been constructed having in mind the latest Sony sensors with high resolution. Apart from that, the lens is to ensure proper resolution, contrast and colours as well as effectively minimize defects, such as chromatic aberration. The lens is equipped with a 10-blade aperture with the light of f/2.5. Thanks to this, we will be able to get extremely malleable photographs from the minimum distance of 35cm. The filters with the diameter of 58cm can be screwed onto the lens. 1). Voigtländer Macro APO Lanthar 110mm f/2.5 The second of the fixed lenses presented today is a compact structure with the dimensions of 62.8×39.9mm. Similarly to the above macro lens, this model is also made of metal. The optical system of Color-Skopar 21mm f/3.5 Aspherical consists of 9 lenses placed in 8 groups.A 10-blade aperture with the maximum light of f/3.5 is responsible for image plasticity. Minimum focus distance is 20cm, and the diameter of the filter screwed onto the front element is 52mm. 2). Voigtländer Color-Skopar 21mm f/3.5 Aspherical As for now, we don't know the dates of availability of the lenses and their prices.
  5. Canon has made an attempt to steal some splendor from Nikon and it decided to focus on both quantity and quality. The next lenses which are having their premieres today are three tilt-shift macro constructions: TS-E 50mm f/2.8L MACRO, TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO and TS-E 135mm f/4L MACRO. These lenses, thanks to rich possibilities of focus and perspective control, will enable both professionals and more advanced enthusiasts to work even more creatively. The lenses will perfectly fulfill their functions not only in macro photography but also in landscape and portrait photography as well as in movie-making. Canon TS-E 50mm f/2.8L MACRO will be a perfect solution for architecture and landscape photography. It is equipped with 12 lenses placed in 9 groups. 1). Canon TS-E 50mm f/2.8L MACRO The TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO model is the lens consisting of 11 elements placed in 7 groups. Apart from macro photographers, it should also find its way to the bags of many portrait and wedding photographers. 2). Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO Canon TS-E 135mm f/4L MACRO, just like its predecessor, consists of 11 elements placed in 7 groups. The macro lens has a bit longer focal length which should perfectly fulfill its role outside, and a longer portrait lens. 3). Canon TS-E 135mm f/4L MACRO All three lenses are equipped with the optical solutions which enable one to reduce the refraction of light, which hinders accurate focus. Ultra-low dispersion lenses make it possible to achieve better sharpness of the image. The used lens is to ensure the highest quality of the image and its full clarity. Tilt-shift in the presented constructions makes it possible to rotate the lens vertically and horizontally, which enables one to minimize all kinds of perspective distortion and regulate the depth of field. We also have a possibility of blocking this rotation in neutral position in order not to change it during the normal use of the lens. All three lenses will appear on sale in November and each will cost around $2,200.
  6. Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM is the newest lens for macrography equipped with a flash, which frames the front lens. Thanks to this function, we will be able to illuminate a photographed object and neutralize the shadows casted by a camera and a lens. The flash has a possibility of illuminating one or two segments at the same time. 1). Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM Inside the flash, we have the optical system consisting of 10 lenses placed in 6 groups. As would be expected of a real macro lens, it has a 1:1 mapping, and the minimum focus distance is 30mm. The lens has been equipped with the Hybrid IS image stabilization technology, which corrects angular and linear displacement of an image, and a quiet, precise STM autofocus motor. 2). Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM Canon EF-S 35 mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM is to appear on sale in June 2017. It will cost $350.
  7. During the ongoing CP+ photography fair, Voigtländer presented three fixed-focus lenses intended to be used with the Sony E system. This is one of them. Voigtländer Macro Apo-Lanhar 65 mm f/2 Aspherical is a reference to the classic Apo-Lanhar model. It has a 10-blade f/2 aperture and, according to the producer, is one of the brightest lenses for macrography. The minimum focus distance is 31cm, and a reproduction ratio is 1:2. 1). Voigtländer Macro Apo-Lanhar 65 mm f/2 Aspherical The lens is, of course, adjusted to full-frame sensors and passes the EXIF data to the camera's body. The lens also has an image stabilization system. The price and the date of appearing on the market has not been given.
